Duke and Duchess of Cambridge seek nanny for Prince George ahead of royal tour

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are seeking a nanny for Prince George, according to latest reports.

Prince William and Kate are looking for a nanny to support them as they prepare to increase their royal workload to support The Queen and Prince Philip.

The couple, who have been hands-on with seven-month-old George, are reportedly looking for a nanny to support them when they visit Australia and New Zealand in April.

Since the arrival of their first child, the couple have relied on Kate’s mother Carole Middleton for when they’ve needed extra support and the Duke’s old nanny Jessie Webb has also been spotted helping the Duchess.

During their month-long visit down under the couple will have a busy schedule attending ten days of engagements in each country, and extra support for Prince George will be essential, as it is “anticipated” he will be joining his parents.

Kensington Palace has explained there are no plans for grandmother Carole to join the Cambridges on their first tour as parents although these latest reports do suggest William and Kate are looking for support for the visit.

Earlier this month, the Duchess, who is still on maternity leave, carried out a handful of engagements attending the Portrait Gala at the National Portrait Gallery and joining The Queen at Buckingham Palace for a reception.

The Duke is currently commuting each day from London to Cambridge as he completes his short course studying agricultural management at Cambridge University, and it is believed during this time Kate is enjoying motherhood as they both prepare for their extensive tour in April.
