An interesting decision
The birth of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s third child is just around the corner, with bookies already banning bets on what the third royal baby’s name may be after one particular choice became a quick favourite.
With only a few months to go, the Duke and Duchess have obviously started thinking about the changes a third addition will mean for their family.
And it seems the two royals will be breaking tradition after deciding to not hiring an additional nanny to help out around the house.
US weekly claims that a source has revealed Kate and Wills want to handle the extra work themselves this time round.
‘They didn’t feel the need for an additional nanny,’ the source said. ‘They feel they can handle everything with the same arrangement as before.’
Kate is also thought to be planning on breaking another tradition, by giving birth to baby number three at home instead of the exclusive Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital where she gave birth to both George and Charlotte.
A source told the Express.co.uk that: ‘Catherine has said she would love to have her baby at home.’
‘She has discussed it with William and he is being very supportive. They both think it would be lovely for the family to have a home birth, particularly for George and Charlotte.’
Although the couple are rejecting additional help, they have enlisted obstetrician Alan Farthing, who will be coming out of retirement to help with the birth.
Of course, if Kate does end up giving birth to twins we imagine they may rethink their decision not to hire another nanny.
