It is truly shocking to hear how normal Kate Middleton and Prince William’s experience as new parents has been. Believe it or not, the couple refused to have a nanny for the first two months of Prince George’s life!
Kate Middleton, 32, and Prince William, 31, continue to prove that they’re just like any other parents. Considering their lavish lifestyle as royals, you would expect to hear they had a handful of nannies to help care for Prince George when he came home from the hospital in July 2013. However, it has been revealed that they did not hire someone to help with George until he was at least 2 months old. Wow!
Prince George Didn’t Have A Nanny Until 2 Months
We are so surprised that Kate and William chose not to hire a nanny for their newborn son’s first months of life, aren’t you?
But it’s safe to admit that it just makes us love the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge even more!
The Aug. 2014 issue of Vanity Fair celebrating the little prince’s first birthday reports that the royals were originally hesitant about hiring a nanny to help care for their son when he was first born.
“Initially the Cambridges didn’t want to hire a nanny. The early weeks, however, were testing. George was a hungry baby who cried often. Kate, who wanted to breast-feed for at least six months, pumped so that William could give George his night-time bottle while she caught up on sleep,” the interesting article reads.
The article continues to explain how Kate and William eventually agreed that they needed some extra help. The choice was not easy but “after much thought and deliberation” they invited William’s childhood nanny, Jessie Webb, 71, back to palace to help care for George until Christmas that same year.
“Jessie was perfect for the job and agreed to come out of retirement to help William and Catherine,” a family friend told the magazine.
Even though he has a full-time nanny now, those first few months were crucial for Kate and William to bond with their little boy. It’s pretty clear that he adores them as much as they love him!
Prince George Is One Of The Best Dressed Royals
George may only be turning 1 year old, but he’s already won the title of best dressed royal. Yes, he really did beat out his famously fashion forward mother!
Both George and Kate’s fashion choices have inspired women and parents everywhere to hop online and order the things they were instantaneously. If George or Kate have worn it, chances are it’s already sold out everywhere!
The good news? We just love watching their fashion choices. Hopefully Prince George wears something extra adorable for his big day on July 22!
