In these candid pictures released by online betting and gaming company Ladbrokes, the Queen can be seen in a pair of dungarees, helping to paint the nursery where the new prince or princess will live.

Ok, ok, so we're having you on a bit! But just how cool would it be if this was really the Queen? We're wishing that this is somehow based a little bit on real life...

Ladbrokes called in the help of some very convincing lookalikes to depict just how they think the royal family might be preparing for the new arrival. While the Duke and Duchess are keeping tight-lipped about the sex of the baby, the bookies favour Kate giving birth to a girl at 2-5 odds, with a boy at 2-1.

As for the name of the baby, Elizabeth, Alexandra and Diana are the current favourites if it's a girl at 6-1, and George is at 10-1 or Charles at 12-1 if it's a boy.

Whatever the outcome, it's safe to say that everyone is excitedly gearing up to the birth of the future King or Queen.
