Han sido fundamentales para la vida de los niños reales durante décadas y con William y Harry teniendo niñeras para su propia descendencia, parece que la tradición continuará.
La niñera del duque y la duquesa de Sussex estaba con ellos mientras estaban de vacaciones con el bebé Archie en la casa de Elton John en el sur de Francia, mientras que el duque y la duquesa de Cambridge tienen una niñera entrenada en Norland que cuida al príncipe George, la princesa Charlotte y el príncipe Louis.

Today, we are excited to be able to announce details for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s upcoming tour to Africa! 🇿🇦🇧🇼🇦🇴🇲🇼 • In just two weeks, Their Royal Highnesses will embark on this official tour focusing on community, grassroots leadership, women’s and girls’ rights, mental health, HIV/AIDS and the environment. This programme has been many months in the making, and The Duke and Duchess are eager to focus their energies on the great work being done in Southern Africa. From meeting with Archbishop Desmond Tutu to joining ‘Waves for Change’ on Monwabisi Beach, the South Africa programme will be educational and inspiring. The Duke is especially proud to continue the legacy left by his mother with her work in Angola as he joins Halo Trust again in an effort to rid the world of landmines. HRH will also travel to Malawi where he will check in on the British Army’s partnership with African Parks and will be working on the ground supporting local communities. The Duke is particularly proud to be able to deliver an exciting new initiative, a Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy three-country partnership which he designed and consulted with Governments in Namibia, Botswana and Angola to protect forest and wildlife corridors around the Okavango Delta. The Duchess will be working with local organisations to promote women and girls’ health and education, entrepreneurship and leadership. With such a textured culture and history, Their Royal Highnesses are grateful for the opportunity to connect with those on the ground in Southern Africa and to be inspired by the work being done and learn how they can be better supported. As President and Vice President of The Queens Commonwealth Trust and The Duke’s role as Commonwealth Youth Ambassador, The Duke and Duchess cannot wait to meet with young leaders mobilising change and adding to the beauty of these Commonwealth countries 🇿🇦🇧🇼🇦🇴🇲🇼 • “We look forward to seeing you soon!” • Photo ©️ PA images / Tim Graham – Getty Images / @Sentebale /@AfricanParksNetwork / @YouthAlert
Pero si bien ambos pueden haber elegido nombrar niñeras, como lo hicieron cuando eran niños, William y Harry parecen tener puntos de vista diferentes cuando se trata de algunos aspectos del trabajo, como el uniforme.
Mientras que la niñera de los Cambridge usa el uniforme que denota la universidad en la que se entrenó durante sus deberes oficiales, el comentarista real Omid Scobie le dice a 'The Royal Box' de Yahoo UK que al buscar a su propia niñera para Archie, el Príncipe Harry había descartado cualquier tipo de uniforme.

This morning, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was christened in the Private Chapel at Windsor Castle at an intimate service officiated by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are so happy to share the joy of this day with members of the public who have been incredibly supportive since the birth of their son. They thank you for your kindness in welcoming their first born and celebrating this special moment. Their Royal Highnesses feel fortunate to have enjoyed this day with family and the godparents of Archie. Their son, Archie, was baptised wearing the handmade replica of the royal christening gown which has been worn by royal infants for the last 11 years. The original Royal Christening Robe, made of fine Honiton lace lined with white satin, was commissioned by Queen Victoria in 1841 and first worn by her eldest daughter. It was subsequently worn for generations of Royal christenings, including The Queen, her children and her grandchildren until 2004, when The Queen commissioned this handmade replica, in order for the fragile historic outfit to be preserved, and for the tradition to continue.

"Una de las cosas que dijo Harry fue: "No quiero una mujer con uniforme alrededor de mi hijo. Esta no es Mary Poppins, vamos a tener un hogar normal", dice.
Según los informes, Harry y Meghan ya están en su tercera niñera para el bebé Archie, con rumores de que la primera persona en asumir el papel no funcionó y la segunda fue en realidad una enfermera nocturna.
