Meghan Markle has been known as the Duchess Difficult by the palace staff since she got married. It is well-known how her staff kept leaving due to her difficult behaviour (which is very unlikely for the members of the royal family). Four resignations in less than one year were no small thing. Her famous rift with the future queen and her sister-in-law Kate Middleton is also well-known. It is no secret that Kate Middleton was left in tears when Meghan Markle reportedly created an issue on her own wedding day. Not only this, Prince William and Kate Middleton were allowed to visit their nephew Archie only after one week of his birth. Not to mention, the protocol was strict and they were not allowed to bring their children who were enthusiastic to meet their baby cousin.
Her reputation as a difficult person not only disturbed the royal family but also Meghan Markle herself. Probably, this was the reason that the couple did not hire the nanny right after childbirth. Also, Frogmore Cottage has barely one person for housekeeping. Meghan Markle wanted to do everything by herself for her new born son. She would not even allow her mother Doria to hold the baby in her absence. Hence, appointing a nanny seemed out of question.
However, the young royals have now hired a nanny whose name has not been disclosed yet. Unlike Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis’ live-in nanny Maria Borrallo who is a graduate of the famous Norland College, Archie’s nanny does not have any such background. Maria Borrallo also travels with the royal family whenever they take children along. Also, this nanny will have a day job and leave in the evening. Weekends will also be days off for her.
As much as the press is eager to see Archie’s pictures, they are also curious to know about his nanny. Maria Borrallo is almost as famous as Prince George as she was always seen by his side. However, this time it will be different. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are very private when it comes to their new born Archie. His birth announcement was also not made in the traditional way. The nanny is not allowed to speak publicly about her role. According to the royal commentator and author Katie Nicholl, the nanny is also supposed to sign an extensive nondisclosure agreement. Hence, I should better keep my expectations low and just focus on what Sussex official Instagram chooses to share.
