January 25, 2019

It’s not a secret that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are raising their three adorable kids with the help of a nanny. But not just any nanny. Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo has been known to the world as 'Mary Poppins'.

Why? Borrallo, who is a highly professional caretaker, once appeared in an outfit which looked like she was trying for a role in the theatre's production of Mary Poppins. However, looking at how she smiles when playing with royal kids, it’s certain that she got her nickname not only because of her outfit.

But why Meghan Markle and Prince Harry don’t want to hire their own Mary Poppins for their future child?

The reason is pretty simple, actually

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will get some help, but it won’t come from a hired staff. Instead, it was reported that the royal couple is planning to ask Meghan’s mom, Doria Ragland, to help with childcare duties.

The Sussex family’s new home, Frogmore Cottage, was chosen partially because it will have enough space for Ragland to come and live with them for some time. Moreover, it is believed that the entire wing of the 10-bedroom house is reserved for the former yoga teacher.

It’s quite convenient because in that way the 62-year-old will always be available to babysit Meghan and Harry’s firstborn.

We wonder how the ginger royal reacted to this idea as he and his brother had a professional nanny when they were growing up. Alexandra Shan 'Tiggy' Legge-Bourke provided the needed care for the royal brothers and later, served as their father’s personal assistant.

Interestingly, there were many rumors that Prince Charles had an affair with Tiggy, some of them were even made by Princess Diana. Nonetheless, Harry and William loved their nanny and even became the godparents of her children.
