Prince William and Duchess Catherine’s family Skype calls
Prince William and Duchess Catherine will use Skype to keep in touch with their children during their upcoming royal tour.
The couple will travel to India and Bhutan for seven nights later this month and leave Prince George, two and 11-month-old Princess Charlotte at home with their nanny Maria Turrion Borrallo but they will be in daily contact with their children.
Sarah Dixon, a maternity nurse who has worked with friends of the couple, told PEOPLE: “They will keep in touch with Skype, and I’m sure Maria will do a diary for them while they are away with pictures and photos, any moments they might have missed. She will know that while they are away, the parents need extra reassurance.”
However, Sarah acknowledges that the royal couple will find it difficult to be away from their children.
She said: “I think Kate will find it quite hard. It’s the first time she has left Charlotte, and at that age they are doing new things every day. That’s often very difficult for parents because they feel they have missed out on certain milestones.”
But Catherine’s mother Carole Middleton will also be around to ensure that the children are ok.
Sarah added: “I’m sure that Granny is on call as a back-up. Two under three is incredibly difficult.”
