It seems yet more drama is surrounding the Sussexes - this time from within their own household.

After the pair were seen to be churning through staff like nobody’s business prior to baby Archie’s arrival, fresh reports suggest the trend is continuing.

According to The Sun, the Sussex household had churned through as many as three nannies in the six weeks since Archie was born.

Onto their third nanny, the couple reportedly had the two former staffers leave just weeks into their appointments but insiders say it’s not necessarily down to the couple.

“... Harry and Meghan do not want to rush this or take any risks getting this decision right. It’s deeply personal and can depend on the needs of the baby and parents,” one source told the site.

The couple have been dogged by rumours of their difficult and ‘sulky’ behaviour, after a royal photographer penned a scathing insight into the pair’s demeanour off camera.

It also comes on the back of Meghan and Harry losing three staff members just months after their wedding last year, before losing private secretary Samantha Cohen, at Christmas time, then her replacement Amy Pickerall just three months later.

Any hopes the revolving door of staff would stabilise in time for the arrival of Archie and the establishment of the family’s new home in Frogmore cottage seem to be dashed.

That said, sources have argued that the loss of the nannies is not down to any difficult behaviour, but rather the natural process of carefully selecting your child’s caretaker.

“Often there are different needs at different stages of the baby’s life,” the source argued. “The first nanny was a night nurse.”

Meanwhile royal watchers are eagerly awaiting another look at the famous family, catching just a few glimpses of Archie so far in the official press photo’s and an adorable Instagram post.

As the couple gear up to take on Africa on their first royal tour as a family, they will certainly be looking for a committed nanny to support them in the busy period.
