Baby Advice Kate and Wills Don't Need -- But You Might!
Without a royal staff on hand, new moms must figure out how to budget and care for their babies on their own.
Welcome to the world, Prince George Alexander Louis. You're one lucky little heir, with the attention of a loving family, a doting nation and a raft of staffers available to attend your every coo and cry.
There's no reason to believe Kate and Wills won't be wonderful parents. They certainly look thrilled. But with so much support in their royal pockets, new parent advice is one thing they don't need.
