The couple apparently plans on being hands on parents and on friend reveals, "Catherine and William are determined to be hands-on parents. Her parents are very excited about the baby and will help out as much as possible. They will, probably, use a part-time nanny to help them out when they have to attend events and don’t have a babysitter, but they don’t want a full-time nanny.”
Apparently the couple do not employ staff at the home in North Wales and enjoy doing their own cooking and cleaning.
Not everyone in the royal family understands this decision to be a perfect princess and mom. Reportedly father-in-law Charles was "dumbstruck" by the idea, however royalty does have it's privileges, and "Kate" is not one to have decisions made for her. After a housekeeper was hired for the young couple Kate let her go saying that "that they were perfectly capable of doing their own cooking, as well as loading the dishwasher and going to the supermarket themselves." However he is thrilled to welcome his friend grandchild stating, ''a very nice thought of grandfatherhood at my old age, if I may say so. So that's splendid. And I'm very glad my daughter-in-law is getting better, thank goodness.''
