Duke And Duchess Of Cambridge Don’t Want Full Time Nanny
Kate Middleton and Prince William don’t plan to hand off baby duty to a nanny, according to insiders. Although the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will reportedly employ a part time nanny for when they need to attend to royal duties, they plan to take on the majority of caring for their first child themselves. A part-time nanny will also enable the Duchess to continue with her charity work.
"They want to be as hands on as possible," a source tells Us Weekly magazine.
Another insider says Kate and William will likely pass on their love of the outdoors to their children. "They're very outdoorsy," a friend says. "I'm sure it will be the same with the kids -- playing outside and going for walks."
Middleton’s pregnancy was announced on December 3 after she was hospitalized for acute morning sickness. The 30-year-old made her first official public appearance since the announcement at BBC's Sports Personality of the Year Awards on Sunday. She helped David Beckham present Lifetime Achievement awards to Lord Seb Coe, Jessica Ennis and Bradley Wiggins.
