Duchess 'gifted baby manual'

Britain's Duchess of Cambridge has been sent off to Anglesey with a baby manual of instructions from her mother.

The royal recently relocated to her home on the island of Anglesey, which she shares with her husband Prince William. Catherine had been staying at her family home in Berkshire, England, following the birth of her son Prince George.

It is said that the Duchess' mother Carole Middleton gave the new family a manual full of information before they left her home.

"[She's helped by leaving her a] baby bible," an insider told UK magazine Look. "Carole literally left them a whole list of instructions - everything from ideas on what to do if Prince George can't sleep, to tips on getting George to burp after a feed. It's basically a baby manual with reminders to help Kate if she is sleep-deprived. There are even pointers for William."

It is thought the couple will stay in Anglesey for around one month before moving to London. The couple's residence in Kensington Palace has been undergoing renovations in preparation for the family to settle there.

"Unsurprisingly, as a result [of the stay in Berkshire], Kate and Carole are closer than ever. The duke and duchess are so grateful, they plan to treat Kate's parents to a break in Paris in October to say thank you," the source continued. "But first they have the big move back to London to make. There's a lot on their plate at the moment but they're looking forward to this fresh start as a family."

Carole's influence on her new grandson is said to have earned her a nickname amongst the royals. She apparently mastered the art of putting Prince George down at night with a remarkable ease.

"Carole really is amazing. They are calling her 'the baby-whisperer' as she is the only one who can get him to sleep!" a source previously revealed.
