Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are known to be close friends with George and Amal Clooney, with the royal couple even holidaying at the Clooney’s luxurious Italian villa earlier this year, and of course attending their May wedding.
That’s right, according to Italian magazine Chi, the newlyweds had a mini holiday in Italy this year, reportedly staying at the couple’s Lake Como villa for three nights – and the couple’s twins were even there too.
So it’s hardly surprising that the now Duke and Duchess of Sussex are taking parenting advice from the Hollywood couple, especially seeing as they welcomed their twins just one year ago.
But what pearls of wisdom have the A-list couple given the royals? Apparently a celebrity nanny recommendation, with Harry and Meghan reportedly hiring their recommended nanny already.
According to reports, Connie Simpson is an expert who has perviously worked with celebrity parents from Emily Blunt and John Krasinski to Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel, as well as the Clooneys of course.
‘I’ll tell Meghan that in all the things you can give a person, the most important thing you can give them is yourself and your love,’ the celebrity nanny reportedly told The Star. ’The baby is going to have no earthly idea that she’s Meghan Markle or that she’s Prince Harry’s wife and in line to the throne. They will just know her for being the one to supply that milk to her and give her that comfort.’
She continued: ‘I’d also advise her to not be overwhelmed by people’s advice. While she may take in information from people like her sister-in-law, don’t try to apply it all to her life because it’s not all going to work. There’s a beautiful little bean coming into the world so they need to enjoy what they made.’
George and Amal Clooney for God parents, perhaps?
