Kate Middleton and Prince William may have broken the royal tradition by not employing a full-time nanny for Prince George, but it seems the new royal parents are surely keeping a help at hand as they gradually set into parenting.
As the royal baby turns one month old on 22 August, Kate Middleton has called for assistance, for raising Prince George, possibly from one of the midwives who helped in delivering of the young prince at the Lindo Wing of St. Mary's Hospital on 22 July, People magazine reports in this week's cover story.
"It is very common for members of the royal family to see the same midwife through the pregnancy, at the birth and then for that midwife to stay on for postnatal care," London-based maternity nurse Sarah Dixon was quoted as saying by the magazine.
In the cover story, which carries William, Kate and George's first family photo together, a source tells that the royal couple had decided not to hire a private maternity nurse because everything including breast-feeding went well.
Plus Prince William and Kate's mother Carole Middleton have been by the Duchess' side since the birth of Prince George.
It was also reported that Prince William has asked his former nanny, Jessie Webb, to help Kate take care of their son, though they refrained away from having a full-time nanny, for they wanted to be hands-on parents.
Meanwhile, the magazine's report says that William and Kate will be taking help from housekeeper Antonella Fresolone once they move in to their new home in Kensington Palace later this year.
