The arrival of Kate and Wills’ second child is imminent, which means they must have a small army of extra nannies ready to care for the baby right? Not so fast. A source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that the Duchess of Cambridge is going back to basics keeping all baby care in the family.
Prince William, 32, and Kate Middleton, 33, are about to become parents again as the world waits with baited breath for an announcement of the impending birth. But it’s Kate’s mom Carole Middleton that’s already planning for the new arrival. She will act as the pair’s nanny because Wills & Kate insist they don’t need any extra help, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned! How cute is that?
Prince William & Kate Middleton: No Nanny For Baby Number Two
“Once baby number two is born, Kate doesn’t want any fancy nannies to help with caring,” a Royal insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Instead, they’re going to go back-to-basics and it’s Kate’s mom Carole that will be hands-on when the new arrival comes. She was a massive help when George came along, so they don’t feel it necessary to hire anyone else.”
The reason for this, the source explains, is because the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge want their baby to have a totally normal baby experience, despite its illustrious surroundings!
“Kate wants to keep it in the family, and William agrees that it wouldn’t make any sense for a hoard of nannies to help out,” the source continued. “Both Kate and William love being parents. They take great pride in being hands-on parents, but they’re not afraid of asking for a little bit of help. That’s where Carole comes in, and she loves to help when she can. “
Well, one couldn’t see the Queen herself changing diapers, right? But it’s good to hear that Kate’s mom is such a trooper.
Prince William & Kate Middleton: Hospital Security Ramped Up
As we previously reported, security at St. Mary’s Hospital, where Kate will be giving birth, has been ramped up. The Royals want to avoid a repeat of any tragic incidents like the alleged suicide of nurse Jacintha Saldanha after Prince George’s July 2013 birth.
Jacintha was a nurse on duty after Kate gave birth to Prince George, and she fell for a prank phone call from Australian radio DJs pretending to be Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles inquiring about their great-grandson’s birth.
“The security plan is much more detailed this time around. There are more bodyguards camped outside the Lindo Wing, and a private area for Kate, making sure only doctors, nurses and Royal family members are granted access,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “They do not want a repeat of the security breach last time. If anyone calls, there’s a special password they’ll have to enter to be able to talk to family members.”
What d’you think HollywoodLifers? Should William & Kate hire a nanny, or leave it all to Carole?
