The Duke and Duchess want to be more hands-on parents than generations past — and want to break with royal tradition! Read on for all the details.
Prince William and Kate Middleton are still more than six months away from welcoming their new bundle of joy, but they already know how they want to raise their kid — and full-time help is not in the plan!
Tradition among the royal household has always been to have full-time child care for the children. William was famously so close to his nanny Olga Powell, who was by his side throughout his whole childhood, he cancelled engagements earlier this year to go her funeral.
But Kate and Will want to be more hands-on with their baby, and won’t hire a full-time nanny!
They may hire a part-time nanny help to serve as a babysitter when the royal couple is busy with engagements, and Kate’s parents Carole and Michael Middleton will also lend a helping hand whenever they can.
“Catherine and William are determined to be hands-on parents,” a friend close to the couple told the Daily Mail.
“They will, probably, use a part-time nanny to help them out when they have to attend events and don’t have a babysitter, but they don’t want a full-time nanny,” the friend added.
Sounds like the royal couple is not afraid to break with tradition — and we think that’s a great idea!
