The "will they or won't they" drama of hiring a nanny continues for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, as it is being reported that the couple is actively looking for a caregiver for their son, George. According to British magazine Grazia, William and Kate were determined to raise George without any assistance, but the realities of their royal duties are catching up with them.
"Kate and William have realized that they really do need help with George," an unnamed source told Grazia. "They were both determined to do it themselves, but common sense has prevailed and they have actively started looking for help. William and Kate want someone trustworthy and very well experienced. It's unlikely they'll hire a live-in nanny, though."
After giving birth on July 22, Kate Middleton spent the next month at her parents' estate in Bucklebury, England. The young family is now reunited and currently residing in Anglesey, North Wales, while William completes his final weeks as a pilot with the British Royal Air Force.
Kate's maternity leave from her royal duties is quickly coming to an end, as she will be expected to attend a fundraising gala with her husband on September 12. After that, she has a series of public appearances scheduled, including her first solo outing in October.
The unnamed source also told the magazine that Kate is looking forward to returning to London once her apartment at Kensington Palace is refurbished.
