The point is that people are assuming that Will and Kate are hands on parents, because they say they are, and we have never seen the KP payroll to verify.

If someone can tell us definitively who is caring for the child day in and day out, I am all ears, and will reserve judgment. Up to now all I am hearing is "oh, I'm sure Will is doing this," and "I'm sure Kate is doing that." But frankly, I don't know and neither do you.

There might be 10 nannies. There might be none. We might be being told the honest to God truth and we might be told a pack of lies.

Reliable journalists with good links to KP have written in UK press about the nanny situation. That is how they knew about Williams former nanny helping out on a part time basis. If there were a f/t nanny then they would know and write about it.

The story has been consistent since before the birth. Even those journalists who are negative about the Cambridges are saying the same thing.

We all rely on the media for info and over time learn who to trust on the facts (Richard Palmer of the Express) and who not (DMail). And take any opinion pieces with a ton of salt.

But isn't the real point that it is none of our business as to how much help they may or may not have with their childcare? George is still very young, but William and Catherine are there when duty beckons, so why should we care. There has been no official statement from KP in relation to domestic or childcare staff, and there really does not need to be one.

Why would we even question that the Cambridges are hands-on parents? If there were a full-time nanny, we would've heard about it by now.

Yes - and it would have been advertised. We know about the housekeeper and the orderly, so no reason why we wouldn't know about the nanny.

The thing that points to "no nanny" for me is how much more generally tired the Duke and Duchess are looking.
It could be that they have both come down with insomnia, but I think the more likely culprit first parenthood.

In many ways, taking care of an infant is the easiest and most joyous part of parenthood. I won't bother to explain why, because if you are a parent, you already know. Why in the world would W&K not want to experience this sweet period (screaming notwithstanding!)?

I don't find it remarkable that they choose to be almost totally hands-on. Ask any working mother if she would rather be home with her baby if she could. Most people who become parents have looked forward to having a baby for years. Anyone who is skeptical about the Cambridge childcare arrangements is not really thinking this through.

IMO it has to be remembered that Kate unlike Diana, HM, Charles, William etc..didn't have a nanny while she was growing up. She might believe that it is her responsibility to be there for her nursing baby whenever she can. It's possible that she views a nanny more as a babysitter, not a full time fixture yet.

There is NO WAY she does not have some kind of nanny arrangement. If they are carrying out engagements, they have someone to pick up the slack.

She has a part time nanny who is called on when convenient (for her as she is retired). It is Williams former nanny. Lots of info about it on the threads

Her name is Jessica Webb, and she has agreed to help them with the baby when needed. She's not full-time.

Low-key Kate surprises art fans
Who was the stunning girl in jeans and black boots who caught the eye of passers-by at Chelsea’s Lots Road auction rooms?
Step forward, the Duchess of Cambridge.
To the surprise of bargain hunters who throng to the popular salerooms, Kate was spotted wandering around the contemporary art section on the ground floor.
But was it really her?
A film crew making a documentary on the auction rooms elsewhere in the building left her alone.
But one plucky customer did enquire: ‘Are you the real deal?’
She somewhat shyly averred that, indeed, it was.
Her fellow bargain hunter had noticed the police bodyguard shadowing the Duchess - who studied History of Art at St Andrews - as she checked out the works on offer, ahead of Sunday’s auction, which she did not attend.
Alas I cannot say what piece took her fancy.
But perhaps Prince William will find it in his stocking.

As always, I'm looking forward to seeing Catherine out and about. I will say that she simply shines at these types of events because she's great with children, and because she has a heart of gold, and will make these children's and families' day.
