She had little, if any make-up on. That may have been what many of us saw in the photos.

She looks groggy from a long car journey. You should see after long journey, I look like the living dead.

So who is this nanny? I thought they had not decided on a nanny yet. And yes Catherine looks a wee bit on the tired side to me. Not too much sleep I suppose.

Could this be William's 71-year-old former nanny, whom they asked to help them out part-time?

Oh yes, of course. For some reason I couldnt remember if she was going to help or not. I wonder if she will end up being full time. She is a great choice.

I wonder if Jessie Webb will break in other staff to care for George; at 71, I can't imagine her coming out of retirement trying to deal long-term and single-handedly with a fussy baby turning into an active toddler/youngster. She's not getting any younger!

I expect Catherine and William have been packing up the house in Wales. I believe someone to help look after the baby during the move would be essential... exhausting work packing up a house.

Exactly and while I'm sure Granny Carole loves baby sitting, she's also got a business to look after too, so while I'm sure she'd love to do it, it's not a great solution long term. It wouldn't surprise me if the former Nanny came out of retirement both so William knew w/out a doubt George was being cared by someone he trusts and to train a much younger Nanny who will take out in a few months.

Or I could be completely wrong on all of that. We'll just have to wait and see.

I think things will clarify once they are moved and have room for needed staff.

I think she is a perfect choice. I would assume she doesn't do full time but would do full time when needed. I personally think she would do great till George is about a year or so then probably the couple will/might hire someone slightly younger who would be able to be as active as the young Prince. I could be wrong, she could be an active 71 year old.

Crown Princess Victoria hired her nanny for her daughter then hired someone much younger to care for her, they could follow the same footsteps but privacy and confidentiality would be a major concern.

I like the idea of hiring the nanny you had as a child to watch after your own ( that is if they are willing to come out of retirement. That is if they have been) For the first year of George life Catherine and William probably wanted someone they know and trusted. As some have said I can see them hiring a new nanny next year who is younger. We don't know what kind of agreement they had.

With hiring someone you know or trust you can leave and go to events, engagement, Ball, dinner, Etc. and not have to be worried.

Apparently the Dec 6 event is a medal parade for the Irish Guards so that makes sense for Kate to go to. William would also be there since he is the colonel.

I haven't heard anything about it but I know her military appointments should be coming up soon. I'm hoping she take up the role as Colonel in Chief of the Princess of Wales Royal Regiment and share the job with Queen Margrethe II of Denmark.

I would be surprised if Catherine took on the role with the Princess of Wales Royal Regiment before becoming Princess of Wales. We already have a Princess of Wales, so I think we might stick with the current arrangement till we have a Princess of Wales who is happy to be called so.

It is interesting if true, that would be a nice coo for Canada considering that Kate doesn't have any British regiments yet. William doesn't have any Canadian regiments.
