Does anyone know if there is or was there any babysitting of the royal children in the BRF by other members of the family? I know there are the nannies, etc., but I know when I was growing up I was always excited to be able to go over to my grandmothers house, aunts houses or older cousins houses to be babysat and really enjoyed being in their houses.

So, I wonder how and if the BRF children ever got to do this as it really became something to look forward to and one would become really close to certain cousins and other family members.

Any insight on this from anyone?

No one interested in this thread? Thought it would trigger some really great comments as we delve into our own past when we were sent to granny's or auntie's house while mum and dad went out for dinner and theatre.

Maybe this thread would get more response in Members' Corner as the subject has become member's own experiences of babysitting relatives, or being minded by relatives.
ETA: thread moved, and title amended to "Babysitting".

To answer your question, IMO, I would think it unlikely that any of the BR babysat for one another.

As children, my siblings and I had a nanny and if our parents were entertaining, we made the occasional appearance. If they were going out, it made no difference to our regime! When we went to visit the grandparents, it was a duty and we were not expected to enjoy it , nanny went with us.

Even with my own children, I think the parents would have fainted if we had asked them to babysit! I also wonder if they would have known how to look after them to the same standard!

We have been trusted with our grandchildren for short periods of time but, nanny is never that far away and 'hovers', especially if we are around the horses or BoP!
