It was a valiant effort, Your Royal Highnesses. You tried to make a go of it when Prince George was born, eschewing hired help in favor of Carole Middleton’s help.
Welp, along with all of the other lessons you learned as new parents, you’ve decided to wave the white flag and hire some extra help for George’s little brother or sister.
Katie Nicholl from the Mail on Sunday reports that William and Catherine have advertised with the Norland Agency in London and Royal Nannies for a live-in maternity nurse, who may stay with the couple for at least three months after Catherine gives birth in April.
“Kate and William loved the early weeks with Prince George but it was hard work and the sleepless nights took their toll. Kate especially was exhausted.”
Catherine spent time following George’s July 2013 birth in Bucklebury with her parents, then Carole traveled up to Anglesey, Wales with her, George and William before the Cambridges finally relocated to Apartment 1A in Kensington Palace.
The maternity nurse will join George’s nanny, Maria Borrallo.
