We all know that Kate and Wills are going to make spiffing parents, and with a month to go until the Duchess of Cambridge's due date, we examine the proof.
Kate Middleton and Prince William are busy preparing for the birth of their first child, so while they stock up on designer baby grows and put the finishing touches to the royal nursery in Kensington Palace, let's take look at why we already know Kate and her Wills will be a dab hand at parenthood via the glorious medium of photos:
From the onset Kate Middleton's affection for children has been clear to see and she's always been comfortable taking a hands-on approach to her charity visits.
The Duchess also knows how to charm shy children and bring them out of their shell. A skill she may need when introducing her own kids into the public eye.
Prince William has already had his fair share of public speaking and will be a pro at bedtime stories.
William is also guaranteed to give great tickles. So cute.
Neither of them mind being silly and their support on school Sports Day will be unwavering - and probably a little embarrassing.
We can just picture Prince William cracking lots of cringe 'dad' jokes, while we reckon Kate will be keen to help her children with their homework. Her Marlborough College education will help with any tricky questions.
Kate will be able to use her newly acquired Scouts skills to set up a brilliant forte/campsite in the grounds of Kensington Palace.
The fun will really start when Uncle Harry comes over to play. As a family trio, it doesn't get much better.
Kate has reportedly been taking cooking classes during her pregnancy so that she'll be able to prepare lots of nutritious meals for her offspring.
Having been in their fair share of sensitive situations, both Kate and Wills will know how to prepare their little ones to handle anything life might throw at them.
Kate already knows how to use a Harry Potter-style wizard's wand, which is always a bonus.
Between them, Kate and Wills have 'dad dancing' nailed.
Kate's Art History degree will make a essential for all homework papier-mâché projects.

Kate Middleton Doesn't Speak In Public Often, But When She Does It's So Very Lovely...
Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, has only made a handful of public speeches during her royal career. We rarely hear her voice, but when we do it makes us feel all warm inside (and makes us think, with some certainty: 'rather her than us').
