Well, this is lovely.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are one of the most talked-about couples in the world, with the news of their future arrival only adding fuel to the fire.

The royal baby is set to arrive this Spring, with members of the public hedging their bets on an April due date.

But who will be chosen as god parents? What will the royals call their future arrival? And just how millennial are Harry and Meghan going with their nursery decor? There are just so many questions.

News this week however surrounded the subject of nannies, with reports emerging that the royal couple might be forgoing hiring a nanny - and all for a very sweet reason.

Apparently when Baby Sussex arrives, Meghan and Harry will rely on close family members instead of a nanny to help them care for their child.

According to Vanity Fair's royal correspondent, Katie Nicholl, the couple 'do not plan to hire a nanny or nurse initially, and will instead rely on the help of Meghan’s mother.'


The couple are set to make Frogmore Cottage on the Queen's Windsor estate their official residence, and with Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland, set to be moving into her own wing of the house, she seems like an obvious choice to help the new parents through it.

We can't wait to meet Baby Sussex!
