Reminds me of the reports before Prince George was born, although William and Catherine did rely on William’s former nanny before hiring Maria.

Its exactly the sort of story that was published when Prince George was to be born, and for some time, after the birth.

The reality is royals are going to have nannies plain and simple. Anyone who has a job needs childcare. Its not like royals can place their children in day care or something. And being a royal is a job, they have to be at events. It is laughable to believe any royal is not going to employ help with kids.

If they don't hire a nanny then one of the following will happen:

the child will be put into childcare from a baby onwards so the parents can work

one or both parents will remain at home full-time to care for the baby - with the two never doing things together

they take the child with them when they go to work

Doria would only be able to get a limited time visa - unless they wish to 'pull strings' to get her a permanent residency and that won't go down well with the majority of the British public.

None of these are options.

A royal child being in day care? The security alone would be a major issue.

As senior working royals neither of them are going to be a stay at home parent. And there is always going to be time when they have to tour or such.

And take them to work??? I can just picture the baby in a kangaroo carrier when they attend events.

There is a reason royals have nannies.

Another issue with daycare is that royal duties aren’t exactly 9-5. For example, there is Endeavor Awards next week. And there will be things that require their attention after hours once the baby is here.

Its possible that Meghan doesn't want a nanny around while she's on maternity leave. Most likely she'll have Doria with her and both women will want to solely bond with the child. As the maternity leave ends and Meghan gets back into the swing of public duties and responsibilities of her role and Grandma has headed back to L.A., a nanny isn't really an option. Its a necessity.

That's how I see it anyways.

Now that's something that's never entered my mind but now that you mention it, I expect Harry to take paternity leave also. Paternity leaves weren't invented at the time I had my babies. Daddies paced in the waiting room anxious to hand out cigars then had drinks to celebrate their "manliness".

Fathers are now as hands on as mothers are and from watching Harry over the years with kids, I can bet my last York peppermint patty that Harry's going to be as hands on as he can get.

And really, if they want to talk about the issue of gender equality, that’s actually a major component in the developed nations. Numerous studies have shown a major problem to the advancement of women in workplace is that duties at home falls unfairly heavily on women than men. The dynamic of childcare and responsibilities is shaped heavily from the first few days forward. So it’s not just to encourage women at work, but it’s also to encourage men it’s ok to be caregivers as well.

I actually expect both Harry and Meghan to be totally hands on parents during the leave period. Harry, in my mind, will do everything that Meghan does for the baby (except for breastfeeding if she chooses to go that route). Grandma Doria will be around for a bit and share the happy homecoming but it'll be the parents with the most hands on care.

Back in September when William was heading to Africa for his Tusk patronage, he quipped that he'll be able to get a full night's sleep. William was/is as much a hands on parent as I expect Harry to be.

With the younger royals, I believe the days of the Nanny doing everything required for child care from newborn onwards is over with. Nannies are there to assist when needed but not the primary caregiver.

Coming through the check out I saw the headlines in New Idea trumpeting TRIPLETS. I'm thinking more along the lines of Zara's bouncing bundle of joy! Ouch.

Goodness if Kate had had as many sets of twins (each pregnancy according to the media) they would have minimum of 6 children!

Same silliness going on with Meghan. Gotta sell papers.

According to the media Catherine would probably have two extra children and a set of twins by now at the amount of pregnancy rumours the tabloids and gossip press spread. And Meghan would probably already be pregnant with her second

I think it is more about the size of Bump and the due date!

Yeah, I know, was just highlighting how we should take that side of the media with a large grain of salt!

Exactly how long would Prince Harry be able to take paternity leave? If he is previously scheduled for royal duties, how can he decline to be at them?

There are obviously essential things that Meghan will attend as well. However, they do know the due date and they can plan it the same way as normal folks. Know when the baby is coming and block out non-essential engagements.
