Pippa Middleton's Pregnancy Advice for Kate Can't Be This Bad!

Poor Pippa Middleton! @Pippatips is now making fun of her pregnancy advice for Kate

The royal auntie-to-be Pippa Middleton is known on these shores as a poised style icon. But in Britain, she's a controversial tabloid fixture, stemming from what many called obvious advice that she doled out in her party planning book Celebrate. Naturally, a mean-but-funny parody twitter account painting Pippa as an out-of-touch dim bulb who's coasting on her name sprung up (sample tweet: Learning can be a fulfilling experience, you can learn by finding out things you didn't know before). And now the folks behind @pippatips are apparently putting out a new book, What to Expect When One's Expecting: A Posh Person's Guide to Pregnancy and Parenting.

The book is packed with tips to help navigate the rarified world of upper-crust parenthood, although the source behind them is a closely-guarded secret. Here's a preview, via The Daily Mail:

--Giving birth can smart a bit, so relieve the pain by taking every drug you're offered. It is, however, considered bad form to bring your own.
--If you're pregnant, your boss should let you take maternity leave. This is so you can take a holiday and oversee Nanny as they start their new role.
--Double-barrelled names require extra thought. Good examples include: Henrietta Rodgers-Thomas, Will Cooke-Bacon, Lottie Knockton-Wood, Tabitha Faulds-Coates, Binky Bowles-Balls, Alexander Irons-Curtain, Beatrice Brakes-Water, Henry Banks-Wise-Lee, Hugh Luvsya-Baby.
--Around now is a good time to sort out your birth plan. A birth plan mainly consists of planning how you would like to give birth.

The book is scheduled to be published in June…just in time for sister Kate's July baby!
