When Meghan Markle and Prince Harry welcomed their first child, Archie Harrison, they didn’t want to have a team of nannies and staff in their home.
Instead, they opted to do things on their own with a little help from Meghan’s mum, Doria, who was in the UK for the birth.
But a few months later the couple decided to hire a night nurse to help them establish a night time routine with their gorgeous little boy.
However their first hire only lasted a few days and they sacked the nanny following an “incident in the night”.
Unsurprisingly, the experience put them off having child care during the night and despite hiring a second nanny they decided to let them go pretty quickly.
“She helped them out on very much a 9-5 basis and it was a great working relationship actually despite reports.”
Nannies are the norm in the royal family, and Harry and his brother Prince William are still extremely close to Tiggy Legge-Bourke, one of the women who helped bring them up.
Charles hired Tiggy in 1993 after his separation from Diana. However the Princess reportedly didn’t get on with her and was jealous of their bond.
It was Tiggy whom William asked to attend his Eton speech day rather than his warring parents and the attention they would bring.
She once described William and Harry as “my babies” and later played a key role in helping them adjust after the death of their mother in 1997.
Kate and William employ Norland Nanny Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo to help them with George, Charlotte and Louis.
She joined the family in 2014 when George was eight months old and has been a key part of their lives ever since – joining them on royal tours and family holidays.
