After the birth of their son Archie, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry had many interviews to find the ideal nanny to take care of their little boy. Professionals barely hired who sometimes were fired, only a few days later, or even a few hours, thus making the Sussex couple look like very demanding parents. However, as Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand report in Finding Freedom, they had their reasons.
Indeed, if the weeks following the birth of Archie the Duke and Duchess of Sussex could count on the support of Doria Ragland, once she returned to Los Angeles, they decided to call in a nanny. by night. And the experience turned out to be catastrophic for the couple. “Meghan and Harry had no other choice but to fire the nanny in the middle of the night on her second day of work because of her unprofessionalism,” relays the Daily Mail. A trauma for them, which they then had great difficulty in forgetting, even with another nanny. “They hired another nanny who did a good job, but due to the incident with the first one neither was comfortable sleeping through the night without going to see Archie regularly. “, report the authors.
Nannies yet handpicked
A bad experience that finally pushed Meghan Markle and Prince Harry to make a radical decision: to take care of their son themselves at night. “After a few weeks, they decided to manage the nights themselves and did without a night nanny,” reports the Daily Mail. If, however, they could not do without a nanny for the weekdays, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle “liked the idea that when they went to bed at night, there were only three in the room. House”. However, it is well known that it was not easy to work at Frogmore Cottage, since in addition to going through a very special job interview, the nannies hired then had to sign a very strict confidentiality agreement.
