Princess Beatrice is seeking advice from the Duchess of Cambridge as she prepares to welcome her first child this fall. 

Nearly one year on from her secret Windsor wedding and Princess Beatrice is looking to her cousin Prince William's wife, Kate Middleton, for advice on how to raise a royal baby.

There are still five months before Princess Beatrice is due to welcome the new arrival—who is expected to have a royal title—but she's getting prepared in advance with the help of close family members.

The 32-year-old is expecting her first baby with Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in the fall, and is rumored to have hired a Norland nanny, just like the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

A Norland nanny can cost in the region of £1000 a week.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge hired Norland nanny, Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo, shortly after Prince George was born in 2013.

She has since helped raise Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis in a "collaborative" manner with Kate Middleton, according to an author who spent a year at the college for a research project.

Louise told The Mirror, "Given what we have seen of Kate when she is out in public, she's very hands-on."

"I imagine her relationship with Maria is very close and they collaborate greatly on the care of the children."

So what could life look like for Princess Beatrice's new nanny?

"I've spoken to nannies who have worked with other royal families and life is pretty normal. You get up, have breakfast, you go to school and you wear your school uniform whether you like it or not," Louise revealed. 

"It would be quite like the average British school children."

Princess Beatrice's baby will be the Queen's twelfth great-grandchild. And the new arrival will mean these changes for the Royal Family.

When the announcement was revealed, her Majesty was said to be "delighted" with the news.
