Here’s what we know…

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are expecting the arrival of their royal baby any day now with the Duchess of Sussex said to be ‘nesting’ in Frogmore Cottage until the birth of their ‘little bump’.

Last week the royal couple announced that they would be keeping the birth of their child quiet in order to ‘privately celebrate’, and ever since the whole world has been speculating about everything from potential baby names and nursery decor to God parent choices and due dates.

This week however the subject that made news was the matter of nannies.


The royal couple were first rumoured not to be having a nanny, with Meghan Markle’s mother Doria Ragland set to move in to help out, and then it was suggested that the couple might choose a ‘manny’.

But it was rumoured this week that Meghan had another stipulation. Meghan apparently wants to hire ‘an American nanny to look after the royal baby’

‘They are keen to explore the possibility of a male nanny. The worker will earn up to £70,000 a year, depending on experience,’ The Mirror reported. ‘Meghan was clear in telling recruiters she favors an American over a Brit and wants them to feel part of the family rather than a uniformed member of staff. That is important to her, she's never hidden the fact she is fiercely proud of her American roots.’

Will Meghan and Harry opt for a British or an American nanny? Only time will tell.
