Meghan Markle and Prince Harry reportedly parted ways with their first nanny for Archie after a mysterious “incident” at night, according to pal Omid Scobie.
The Sussexes were reluctant at first to hire nannies when their beautiful boy was born, in a break from royal tradition that the likes of Prince William follow.
But they had change of heart a few months later and brought in a night nurse to help establish a routine.
The nanny's employment was reportedly short-lived, though.
Royal author Omid, who co-wrote Harry and Meghan’s biography Finding Freedom, explained exactly what happened on recent Channel 4 documentary A Very Royal Baby: From Cradle to Crown.
“So after Archie’s arrival, Harry and Meghan wanted some help to establish a sleeping pattern and so hired a night nanny,” he said.
“Whilst I can’t go into someone else’s employment details for legal reasons, it was an incident on one of the very first nights that put the couple off from having a night nurse.”
Royal commentator Emily Andrews then said the pair hired another nanny but that also didn’t work out.
“A second nanny was brought in to replace her but by that time, apparently, Harry and Meghan had decided the whole night nanny thing wasn’t for them,” she said.
But it proved to be third time a charm, after the couple hired a close friend on a “9-5 basis” who helped them out until they made their move to California in the US.
Omid added: “It was a great working relationship actually, despite reports.”
The ABC royal correspondent also spoke about the “incident” in Finding Freedom.
He wrote: “Meghan and Harry were forced to let the nurse go in the middle of her second night for being unprofessional and irresponsible.
“Neither found themselves comfortable sleeping through the night without going to check on Archie regularly.”
They ultimately decided to have a daytime nanny as they “didn’t want their home filled with staff”.
The book added: “Harry had seen that situation at William's home and didn't want the same for his family.
“He and Meghan liked the idea that when they went to bed at night, it was just the three of them in the house. Cozy and private."
