    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have remained relatively tight lipped when it comes to their pregnancy, with royal watchers left guessing on how the couple will prepare for their new arrival.

    But new photos appear to offer a little insight into the couple's pre-natal prep - as imagined by celebrity spoof photographer Alison Jackson anyway.

    Jackson is well known for mocking up pictures of the royals, with their lookalikes standing in.

    This made me smile they look so much like the Duke and Duchess.

    Princess Anne has always been my favorite among the British royals for the many reasons that you cite, not to mention that I'm the same age (born in 1950) and many of my Dad's (Canadian) relatives frequently said that I looked like Princess Anne. Among the Royals, Anne has always approached her duties with quiet elegance and grace, and without craving or seeking the spotlight. Anne also shielded her children from the media and made a sincere effort to keep her family life private. I truly admire Princess Anne. Had she been in line for the throne, Anne would have been a gracious and respected Queen.

    No it should be destroyed with fire. I hope it ends up in the bargain bin in Poundland/Dollartree and not on the New York Times best seller list.

    Charity shops will have plenty of copies in a few months. Anyone curious can get a guilt-free look then. ;)

    Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's baby has already set an impressive new royal record, despite the fact he or she hasn't even been born yet.

    The couple's first child, who is due to arrive around April time, has trigged a betting frenzy with a record breaking amount of cash being placed on the date of birth, sex and name of Baby Sussex.

    Meghan's baby has already set impressive new record - beating George & Charlotte

    Is anyone here going to put a bet on relating to the new Royal baby? Not that I am encouraging gambling.

    Not a monetary bet, but I’m hoping for a girl born on April 17 named Lily.

    Wow. Never thought of that. It makes perfect sense. People will buy it.

    I wonder what kind of advance he got?

    I can see why he is divorced.

    Really, Meghan’s “family” is a caricature. They would make an excellent comedy family on British televsion. I wonded if someone will do a spoof show on them.

    I have seen Elton twice and I was soooo emotional. Not only cuz I love him but it was as close to Diana as I would ever get. We may see him again but we just got Queen with Lambert tickets and Michael Buble' for July. Come from Away musical in Toronto in April so spending enough. O/T sowwy

    Now if I were to spot either book in a garbage bin I would bring it home. Watch it slowly burn in the fire pit while enjoying a lovely glass of Pinio :D That's a close as I would get.

    I like London for a girl. They can sway from the traditional names right?

    I was too, followed the Grateful Dead for a summer with my friend. Crazy. And now, I have tinnitus. Sigh. Good times.

    I never saved any of the shirts from concerts, and saw some on Ebay for bucko bucks. Dang! Who would have thought a "Cheap Trick" or "Styx" shirt would be worth money?
