No Nanny For The Duke &Amp; Duchess Of Cambridge But Zara Phillips WILL Be Getting Help

BREAKING NEWS KLAXON! New royal parents Prince William and Kate Middleton won't be hiring a nanny to help raise baby George of Cambridge, but Will's cousin Zara Phillips is planning on calling in the help for her firstborn child.

A friend of Zara's apparently told the Telegraph, "Zara and Mike both have a lot of sporting commitments next year, so they know they will need some extra help caring for the baby." Fair enough, right?

"They want to be as hands-on as possible, but they have to be realistic about their respective workloads and all the travel that their jobs necessitate."

As with most of the royals Zara was looked after by a nanny in her early years and her spokesman has said the couple still haven't made a final decision about whether to employ a nanny full-time.
