I think they have probably been working on this for a while - when the tour was mooted, say November time. I think that although its being talked about for the tour, it will be permanent as Jessica Webb is over 70.

As for the tour itself, I think it will be Jessica and the new nanny or just the new nanny. All indications so far are that they will place George at a base and travel to him, they wont be taking him with them all the time. This is what Charles and Diana did, but this time there is Skype to help them out.

Having said all that, none of this is confirmed - it is a DM story.

One or two nannies or Kate and one fulltime nanny and a lady's maid/nanny.

How long is the Australian trip? Has that been confirmed? If it is less than 5 days, doubt George will be dragged along.

Staff of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

The tour is almost a month long. 7-10 days in each country with a couple days off in between. Plus it will take a day to get there and another back.

The exact itinerary isn't finalized. Supposedly, the advance team is going this month to check things out. I would think that Miguel and Rebecca are in charge of the tour plan with Jamie no longer working full time. If Kate and George go to Mustique with the Middletons at the end of the month, that would a perfect time for their private secretaries and Ed Perkins to go to Australia and NZ to scout things out.

Skippyboo - I carries this Mustique vacation idea over to the General News and Info for the D and D of C and Family thread. Thanks!

MOS DIARY: Duchess of Cambridge breaks tradition to hire a young foreign nanny | Mail Online
It seems that they found a young nanny for George. Jesse Webb is feeling "reluctant" to go Down Under, Can't blame her! I'm sure she has been helpful but sooner or later a new one was needed! I've nerver understand why they hired a retired woman (Ok, they trusted her but it's her right to retire IMO)

With Jesse Webb's closeness to the family, I think she was probably over the moon and honored at being asked to be George's first nanny. With George being a newborn and with Kate around for the majority of the time, I don't think her duties were overtaxing nor overtiring for her. Going down under though would be quite an undertaking for someone her age though.

I suspect they trusted her and also wanted Master George to get into a good routine ... very important for a baby. I am surprised that they have hired someone as young as 22 years old. She may be very well trained (hopefully) but does not seem to carry a great deal of experience along with her.

Smart...younger woman is going to defer more to the mother.

I wonder if they got the nanny from one of their friends. They have several friends with children such as the Van Custems and such. Barbara Barnes, William's 1st nanny, worked for Pr and Princess Michael before moving over to the Wales.

The tour information normally says who is going so we may find out who the new nanny is tomorrow.

Didn't Andrew & Sarah have a young nanny?

Not such a new thing then - although granted the European part is.

Too right about being selective on the nanny. After watching the last season of Downton Abbey, I realize that one can't be too careful.

Another thought on their vacation, raised in the Hello article... they wanted George to bond with the new nanny without their interference and saw this as an opportunity for a little "us" time...

The nanny is definitely older than 22. I daresay in early 40s so her age is mature enough to have experience. The pic was taken last week though

At least the RPO is in the picture unlike the shots with Kate and Lupo where they aren't even seen.

It was also mentioned that this 22-year old Nanny was foreign. What country is she from?
