Meghan and Harry 'go through three nannies in six weeks' for baby Archie

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have reportedly lost two nannies in the six weeks since Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was born.

According to a royal source, the couple are keen to find the perfect fit for their new family and want to get the ‘deeply personal’ decision of who to hire absolutely right.

The source told The Sun: ‘Often there are different needs at different stages of the baby’s life. The first nanny was a night nurse.

‘But Harry and Meghan do not want to rush this or take any risks getting this decision right.

‘It’s deeply personal and can depend on the needs of the baby and parents.’

Although the nannies have not been identified, Harper’s Bazaar reported earlier this month that a ‘British-born female nanny’ had been hired but is ‘not permanently based at Frogmore Cottage or working weekends’.


The couple have so far lost a number of key staff since their marriage in May last year.

In November Meghan’s personal assistant Melissa Toubati resigned from her position after just six months in the job.

And just weeks later, the couple’s private secretary and right-hand woman Samantha Cohen quit after working for the royal family for 17 years.

In January this year, Meghan’s personal female bodyguard also left her post after six months.

The couple were then dealt another blow in the past few weeks after private secretaries Amy Pickerel and Heather Wong also left.


Whoever does end up staying in the job is expected to help out with their upcoming trip to South Africa in Autumn.

The couple confirmed baby Archie – who will be around five months old on his first official overseas trip – will be joining them.

The Duke will also carry out solo visits to Angola, Malawi and Botswana.

It is not uncommon for the royal family to hire nannies to help out with looking after the children while their parents carry out official engagements.

Prince William and Harry were cared for by their nanny Jessie Webb throughout their childhood.

Both still have a good relationship with Ms Webb and the Duke of Cambridge even hired her to look after Prince George when he was first born.

In 2014, Maria Teresa Borrallo was hired as George’s carer when he was eight months old.

The Norland nanny has been a firm fixture in the Cambridge household ever since, and now also cares for Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
