Royal couple 'don't need new nanny'

Catherine Duchess of Cambridge is said to be happy with Prince George's nanny and won't be hiring another one for her soon-to-be new arrival.

The royal couple are eagerly awaiting their new arrival, who's due later this month. They are already proud parents to Prince George, 20 months, who has nanny Maria Borrallo on hand to help. And with Maria there, 33-year-old Catherine seemingly won't need anyone else.

"They are happy with the arrangement. If anything changes it wouldn't be for a while," a source told People magazine.

However insiders say this will probably change in a few months.

Ken Wharfe acted as a personal protection officer to William and his younger brother Harry when they were children and says ultimately Catherine will need another pair of hands.

"They may not have one initially but they'll have one ultimately, in six months to a year. When George is being taken out, someone's got to stay in and look after the other one. They'll have to have a reserve nanny to do the babysitting when the other's out," he explained.

While the sex of the unborn baby is not yet known, Britain's Hello! magazine has been asking readers to vote for their favorite name.

So far James is the front runner for a boy while Diana, the name of William's late mother, is in the lead if it's a daughter.

Bookmakers William Hill say that over 70 per cent of bets have been made for a girl.
