I think they should employ a couple of nannies, even if the Queen herself has to intervene. Its impossible to live in a 20 room, four floor apartment at Kensington Palace and not employ staff.

My friends who have children have all said at one point that if they had the means, they would hire a nanny LOL! I too don't think it's a big deal. William grew up with a nanny, many in his social circle probably did as well. It doesn't mean you're not involved with your child, love your child any less or whatever.

Many full-time working mothers hire a nanny, what's so strange in it?

Either a nanny or an au-pair.

Nothing's strange. If she becomes a full time working mother, somehow I doubt that though. I don't see why Catherine and William 'must' have a nanny if they can handle it on their own.

I dont see why not. IMo, it is completely odd (and unhealthy) to have to be tied to the child at all times, when you do not need to.

In London, most working parents these days, if they can afford it, have varying levels of child care. I think it is good for the children to not be dependent on the parents only, and it is good for the parents to have a life beyond being parents only.

I shudder to think of the criticism and commentary if Catherine stopped undertaking public engagements once the baby was born, just because she did not want to leave the child with a nanny.

I would personally accept and understand that. She's going to obviously go on maternity leave, for longer than William for obvious reasons but if she stays with the child for 6 months and only appear at big events I'd understand that. I'd certainly understand it better than their current situation.

We'll undoubtedly see a nanny appear sometime next year, I'm of the opinion that if you don't need one, don't have one. I will constantly think back to the way Charles and other royals have talked about their relationships with their nannies instead of their parents.

There's no doubt that William & Catherine will be hands on parents but as the reality is that they are senior working royals and they will need the help once they embark on official engagements. I think Catherine will most likely take some time off to be with the baby and I'm sure her family will be a great help looking after the baby too. At some point they will most likely employ a nanny when the time comes and I hope the media and others won't apply any criticism on them for doing so. It would be very unfair to them for doing something the royals and others have always done and are still doing.

Well I'm going out on a limb here and say there is no chance in heck of a Princess Diana and eventually a Queen Diana. This is just more propaganda from the Dianaphiles to trade off her name

I am in agreement. Now, Diana as a middle name - that's virtually a certainty. I'm even prepared to believe they may choose Diana as the first name of younger daughter. But Diana as the first name of their first-born daughter? Can't see that happening.

I think they may include Diana's middle name for a girl, Frances. Also they could include the name Diana has part of a middle name as well.

I have to agree. I do not see Diana as a first name at all. Maybe as a middle name yes, or they may use Francis as a middle name. I think they will stay with the more traditional names. I do hope they will use Caroline somehow as Catherine is so close to her mom. It would be a nice gesture.

I agree with you. No need to add any fuel to the perpetually burning fire.

It doesn't matter what we commoners think. The Queen must approve the names Will and Kate choose. I don't see her approving 'Diana' as a first name, but maybe as a middle name. Do the girl babies born into the Windsor family HAVE to have a first and 3 middle names?

Absolutely...I think that recent events have highlighted the need for William and Kate to take on more staff in a variety of positions. Whether or not they are full-time royals right now has not diminished their status as worldwide celebrities (like it or not) and with that comes a certain responsibility to their own family and others. They simply can't go it alone anymore, not that they ever really did, but I'm talking about housekeepers, chefs, ladies in waiting, valets, etc. It's like they're pretending to be like everybody else when they obviously are not, so get on with it and let's have a professionally run household that can handle the demands of their lives.

Most of the ladies, I believe, have a first and 2 middle names. It's the men who have all 4. Why, I'm not entirely sure.

but not all ladies have 3 names, some have 4.
so i assume that if the first-born is a girl, she will have 4 names. (QEII doesnt count, because when she was born, it was never expected for her to take the throne)

I've been thinking on the subject of Will and Kate having a full time nanny and I've come to the conclusion that it is perhaps the best way to go for them and the child.

Having a full time nanny around 24/7 will not diminish Kate's ability to be a full time hands on mother but if/when occasions arise (and I'm positive they will) that the parents run into a stretch of a hectic schedule, when the nanny does step in as primary childcare, it will be someone that the child is very familiar with and comfortable with. We've seen how William and Harry formed a deep relationship with their nannies and it will ease things along when Kate really can't be available for the child's needs. If all goes well too, the nanny will be someone that Kate can lean on also as she doesn't seem to be the type of person that would ever feel threatened by her children's bond to a nanny.
