Kate Middleton is reportedly considering taking her mum along on her and Prince William’s next tour as Prince George’s nanny.
Although it is yet to be officially announced, it is widely thought that Kate and Will’s next tour with be in Australia and they fully plan to take little George along with them.
However, a Royal tour is just no place for a baby – since they generally don’t tend to know that not smiling and throwing tantrums isn’t the correct etiquette that befits a Royal, so it goes without saying that the couple will need a nanny – and apparently Grandma Carole Middleton is just the person!
Although they have already hired a nanny, 71-year-old Jessie Webb who took care of William and Harry when they were tots, it sounds like she won’t be making the trip, and they think Carole is the perfect replacement.
An insider told The Mirror: “They don’t want just anyone helping out in Australia and think Carole would be perfect.
“William has always admired the close relationship between Carole and Michael and how they’ve raised their children in such a happy environment. That’s what he wants for George, so he and Kate are enlisting their help whenever they can.”
Also, it gives Carole an excuse to go Down Under and hang out on the beach with the baby whilst her daughter works – we definitely wouldn’t mind it!
This decision would also make sense, as it has previously been said that Kate and William want to give George as much of a normal upbringing as possible, with a source telling Us Weekly: “Kate doesn’t want George to be more used to the sight of the help than to his own parents.”
It sounds like keeping it in the family by enlisting Carole’s help will suit Kate and Wills just fine!
