The Duchess of Sussex has set her sights on an American nanny to take care of the newest member of the Royal Family.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are set to snub the royal traditional of hiring a Norland nanny, and could even employ a male aid for their new-born.
Pregnant Meghan’s hunt for an American nanny shows that her heart is still very much in her homeland of the US.
The 37-year-old is said to have enlisted the help of staff at a specialist recruitment agency, who have been told to find a suitable candidate to start within the next three months.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex paid a visit to Canada House this week, and of course Meghan paid tribute to the country she lived in for over six years via her outfit.
Her stunning coat is by Canadian-born designer Erdem, and between the rich green shade, wool fabric and black floral beaded embellishment, it’s a work of art.
The swing fit and bracelet sleeves give it a vintage vibe, and this custom made design is inspired by a style from Autumn/Winter ’19 collection (pictured, right). Add in her favourite Aquazzura heels, and Meghan looked positively glowing.

Speaking to the Mirror, a source said that the modern royal couple have clear ideas on how they will be bringing up their child.
‘Meghan was clear in telling recruiters she favours an American over a Brit and wants them to feel part of the family rather than a uniformed member of staff.
‘That is important to her, she’s never hidden the fact she is fiercely proud of her American roots.

This is while only a handful of men are known to have attended the infamous Norland school, with the first two having graduated just last year.
It was also recently revealed that Meghan would break another royal tradition by not giving birth at the Lindo Wing, and having the baby out of the public eye.
