Kate Middleton and Prince William have reportedly asked the royal nanny to come out of retirement to help care for Prince George. They’ve requested that Prince William and Harry’s former childhood nanny, 71-year-old Jessie Webb help care for the royal baby.
According to reports, Jessie Webb was reportedly ‘let go’ by Princess Diana while she was alive, but Jessie remained close with the boys throughout the years. Sunday People is alleging that Jessie Webb is, “sorely tempted to help the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, she’s concerned about having full-time duties again.”
Jessie has been “traditionally trained” as a caregiver and has a “terrific sense of humor,” the report says. A former colleague claims that Webb knew when to put her foot down, “She would stand for no nonsense and would want to do things her way,” adding, “You had to be tough, because being nanny at that time could be a very stressful job…But she tried her best to keep the boys away from the tears and the rows.”
The colleague explains that, “Jessie was very kind to the boys, and William will remember this. Charles was particularly fond of her. Diana, I think, [was] a bit jealous because [Jessie] was actually more fun.” The colleague adds that she’s “very flattered” after “they’ve put the idea to her that she comes back.” A royal source states, “Jessie would be ideal…Everyone likes her. She’s discreet and she’s of an age when she’s not going to have her picture in the papers every five minutes.”
