We love to keep up with the latest news about the British royals, so we’re pleased to learn all the latest details of little Prince George’s life at home with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, thanks to Vanity Fair magazine’s August 2014 issue.
With Prince George’s first birthday looming (he’ll be celebrating it on July 22), we’re interested in finding out what sort of baby he has been and how well he has behaved behind the scenes.
According to Vanity Fair, while Prince George was a real angel and on his best behavior during his first few public appearances, “…For the first few months the prince cried loudly and frequently, and he was not sleeping through the night. Nanny Jessie Webb tried hard to get him into a routine, but the baby prince, who was still breastfeeding, was permanently hungry,” the mag notes.
In fact, Kate Middleton only got a rest after several months, and it was only “in the new year when Kate introduced solids, that George finally slept through the night.”
Although nanny Webb was no doubt a massive help during the prince’s first few months, she has since been replaced with Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo, who was hired in March to take her place. So how did the new nanny manage to bond with the little prince?
“She spent a week bonding with George at Kate’s family home in March under the watchful eyes of the Middleton grandparents, while Will and Kate jetted off to the Maldives for a second honeymoon,” Vanity Fair reports. “Her credentials include experience in self-defense, high-speed driving, and dealing with paparazzi.”
Prince George has become somewhat of a star attraction, and fans of the royal couple are always desperate to see the latest pictures of the tiny tot.
However, as a mother, Kate Middleton has tried her best to keep her baby out of the prying public eye, and will now only walk with her son on the grounds of Kensington Palace, where they can’t be photographed, Vanity Fair notes.
Being born to royalty, Prince George will never have a completely normal life, but his parents are certainly trying to make it as close to normal as they possibly can. And how do the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge achieve this?
“They take George to playdates at the homes of friends, among them Kate’s old Marlborough friend Alice St. John Webster, who has a baby several months older than George,” the mag claims.
