AceShowbiz - Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have reportedly chosen a nanny for their first child, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. Multiple sources revealed to BAZAAR.com that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex had decided to have a nanny to help the couple as Harry will be busy with his summer schedule in addition to Meghan planning a return to royal duties this fall.
It was said that the British-born female nanny is not permanently based at Frogmore Cottage or working weekends. Sources went on saying now that they have hired a nanny, it is more likely that baby Archie will be joining his parents for the trip to Africa this October.
Meanwhile, Express claims that the couple "forces" the Sussexes' childminder to sign an "extensive" non-disclosure agreement to protect the family's privacy. Royal commentator Katie Nicholl told Entertainment Tonight, "I've heard from very reliable sources that the new nanny has been appointed by the Sussex's has had to sign quite an extensive non-disclosure agreement."
Nicholl added that despite hiring a professional nanny, Meghan was still on hand with her baby boy. "Meghan's been up in the night nursing, feeding on demand every few hours," she explained. "Apparently he's a hungry little baby."
Meanwhile, royal expert Victoria Howard believed that the Duke and Duchess would opt for a "non-traditional" nanny. While Prince William and Kate chose a Norland nanny for their three kids, Meghan and Harry were said to be looking for "someone who is obviously experienced, but that has more of a rounded attitude towards child rearing."
"I think they will look for things that will make them aware of mental health perhaps, encouraging creativity and for them to be themselves," added Victoria. "So I definitely think it's going to be non-traditional, maybe someone that has been recommended by some of their Hollywood friends perhaps."
