She's Stylish: We already know that Pippa knows what she's doing when it comes to fashion. She regularly steps out in chic clothes and stylish looks (who can forget her bum in that Alexander McQueen bridesmaid dress?!) and we're sure the 29-year-old can give the little one advice on how to dress for any occasion.
She's a Great Party-Planner: Obviously, Pippa will throw her nephew an amazing first birthday. She's an accomplished party planner with her book Celebrate: A Year of Festivities for Families and Friends and even knows how to throw kid-friendly bashes. But it's not just about birthdays. Will and Kate's son can look forward to a lifetime of Pippa-planned parties of any occasion.
She's Popular: Pippa gets invited to tons of events, especially weddings! And we're sure she gets plus-ones, meaning the Prince of Cambridge will be taken to lots of swanky soirees and fancy nuptials (free food and lots of fun!).

She's Already a Supportive Sibling to Kate: Who could ask for a better sister than Pippa? She helped walk her sis down the aisle during her April 2011 wedding. She reportedly planned Kate's baby shower. And you can bet Pippa will be there at all of her nephew's big events, milestones, graduations, birthdays and hopefully future royal wedding!
Hot Uncle: If things keep going well between Pippa and charming boyfriend Nico Jackson, Kate's son will have a hot and handy uncle! Nico is a stockbroker for London's Deutsche Bank and can help advise on finance issues and can give advice on investing.
She's Got Connections: In addition to her book publishing and party-planning connections, Pippa is a contributing editor for Vanity Fair covering Wimbledon 2013. If the royal baby boy takes on an interest in the world of media, Pippa can sure hook him up.
She's Business Savvy: In May 2013, Pippa started her very own business (talk about a busy, busy business woman!). She registered her first company under the title PXM Enterprises and listed herself as the sole shareholder and director. And as we all know, if never hurts to have a business-savvy mentor in the family.
She's a Good Cook: Pippa nabbed herself a cooking column for Waitrose Kitchen magazine (and who doesn't love a good cook in the fam?). For her first entry, she whipped up an "Asian-themed night in with friends" with five recipes, including sushi rolls and Vietnamese spring rolls, as well as tangerine and sake jellies with coconut cream. Yum! Eat up, little prince.
She's Athletic: Wonder how Pippa maintains her bangin' body and bum? She's very athletic. She and Nico love skiing, They enjoyed quite a romantic getaway together in St. Moritz, Switzerland earlier this year. And last year, she completed a 56 mile cross-country marathon in 7 hours!
She Has a Sense of Humor: After critics' mocked her book Celebrate for being too obvious, she fought back with some light-hearted humor. "If I were to write a cookery book, for instance, I would be compelled to say that, to make an omelette, you have to break at least one egg," she joked.
She Likes to Have Fun: All of her business and hard work aside, Pippa likes to have a good time. She's been spotted out clubbing with beau Nico at London's private members' spot Loulou's as well other of the city's exclusive hot spots.
She's Charitable: Last but not least, Pippa has a do-gooder heart. The Swedish marathon se completed benefitted Magic Breakfast, a charity that delivers free, healthy breakfast foods to hungry children at U.K. primary schools. She's also connected to the London's Breakthrough Breast Cancer charity.
