The new nanny for baby Archie will have to follow these strict rules

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have proven to be extremely private when it comes to their personal lives, and because of this are expected to go to extensive measures to ensure their staff are appropriate for the job.

Royal insiders have confirmed that the nanny chosen by both the new parents for baby Archie has been made to sign an “extensive” non-disclosure agreement, as reported by The Sun.

Katie Nicholl, royal biographer, told ET that the Duchess’ mother Doria Ragland has since returned to her home in the US and professional care has stepped in to take on duties for the newest royal addition.

“I’ve heard from very reliable sources that the new nanny who has been appointed by the Sussexes has had to sign quite an extensive non-disclosure agreement,” she explained.

Along with hiring help to look after Archie, Nicholl added the Duchess has had a number of sleepless nights.

“Meghan’s been up in the night nursing, feeding on demand every few hours.

“Apparently he’s a hungry little baby.”

A royal historian stepped forward this week to claim the Duke and Duchess of Sussex would opt for a non-traditional nanny.

Victoria Howard told the Express the couple would hire someone with a different set of values than the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s Norland nanny, Maria Borrallo.

“I think they will look for someone who is obviously experienced, but that has more of a rounded attitude towards child rearing,” the historian said.

“I think they will look for things that will make them aware of mental health perhaps, encouraging creativity and for them to be themselves.

“So I definitely think it’s going to be non-traditional, maybe someone that has been recommended by some of their Hollywood friends perhaps.”

Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was born on May 6 and Harry and Meghan have had a handful of helping hands to lend advice and care for the tiny tot.

While the ruling is not closed on whether the royal couple will hire an American nanny, Howard said: “It’s a possibility, but I think the likelihood is they will be British just because they are based in Britain.”
