Prince William ‘won’t advertise for nanny’
Britain’s Prince William and Duchess Catherine don’t have plans to advertise for a nanny for their second child.
The royal couple – who have 17-month-old son Prince George – are said to be keen to bond with their newborn, who is due in April, on their own so are reportedly not going to look to employ an extra pair of hands when the little one is born.
A royal source told HELLO! magazine: “As new parents, the duke and duchess wish to enjoy being with their new baby and all that this entails.
“There are no plans to advertise for a nanny or a maternity nurse.”
Catherine’s mother Carole Middleton is expected to lend a hand when the couple’s new baby is born, just as she did in the first few weeks following George’s birth.
The Duchess of Cambridge attended numerous royal engagements this week, including a visit to the Emma Bridgewater pottery factory in Stoke, central England, and she also spoke to mothers who struggle with serious illness while bringing up their children during a visit to charity Action for Children.
William, 32, and Catherine, 33, announced last September that they were to become parents for a second time, and he later admitted that, while the duchess was experiencing similar severe morning sickness as she did while pregnant with George, the pair were “thrilled” with the news.
He said: “It’s been a tricky few days – week or so – but obviously we’re basically thrilled, it’s great news, and early days.”
