Being in the spotlight comes with a lot of caveats, especially if you're a new mom. Paparazzi and fans alike will do anything they can to catch a glimpse of you with your child, no matter how young. That's what makes Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's ability to keep the little Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor under wraps so impressive.
They have 100% control over the entire narrative surrounding his first month, but now that dust is beginning to settle, Meghan and Harry will need to invite an outsider for help. (19659003) Meghan Markle, Prince Harry and Baby Archie ” class=”wp-image-1140111″/>
Sadly, Doria had to return to her life in Los Angeles eventually, leaving her daughter and son-in-law to fend for themselves. While the Duchess of Sussex is still taking a hiatus from the royal duties to care for Little Archie, she would still benefit from having a nanny. Not to mention, when her maternity leave is up, and Archie is a bit older, she will have no choice but to leave him in the care of another.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry seemingly lost one nanny
Meghan has not had the best of luck when it comes to her staff. She lost her personal assistant, Melissa Touabti, after just six months and her assistant private secretary, Amy Pickerill, called it quits as well. While she managed to share her good terms with her, she had a problematic relationship with the former. Perhaps that is not surprising as the Duchess of Sussex is reportedly very hard to work under.
That may be the reason why the new parents lost their first nanny. According to New Idea Meghan had a hard time adapting to life with a nanny present. It meant she had to give up some of the controls she had worked so hard to wrangle – and move she has a hard time accepting.

While some may chalk that to Meghan being overbearing, it might be that her new mom jitters make it very difficult to relinquish care of her newborn son to another. In an ideal situation, Doria would have been able to stay in a mother-in-law suite – unfortunately, that is not feasible at this time.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's new nanny had to sign an extensive NDA
While the gossip about the first nanny is just whispered on the grapevine, news about the latest addition to the Sussex household is anything but. While the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are doing what they can to keep her personal details secret, some information has already been leaked. Her gender, and her nationality – British-born. Meghan's goal is to keep her nanny's identity under wraps, but there's still a good chance that it will be revealed at some point.
Sure, their new nanny's name might be a secret, but the NDA she had to sign is not. We do not know the nitty-gritty details, but we know it was an extensive hard-hitting legal document that bound the new caregiver to a life of secrecy. That may sound harsh, but one should not expect any less. All of it takes flapping lips to break down the secure household that Sussex's have built for themselves – a risk that they clearly are not willing to take. Oh, and she's not working weekends either. So if she might have had to sign a pretty intimidating document, she managed to strike a pretty good deal
