Did you know Meghan Markle had a baby? Unless you just woke up from a coma, you probably heard that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry welcomed a baby boy on Monday morning, who weighed in at seven pounds and six ounces. The royal couple has not given fans too many details about Archie Harrison, but a new report claims that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have decided that they don’t need a nanny to raise their son.
While the world waits to get another glimpse of baby Sussex, the British tabloids are working overtime speculating on what Harry and Meghan’s life will be like now that they are parents. And, the story that is making the most noise at the moment is that Meghan is impossible to work for, which has led to several staff members quitting and leaving them with a skeleton crew at Frogmore Cottage.
“We’re just so thrilled to have our own little bundle of joy”

According to The Hollywood Gossip, it’s not clear if Meghan deserves her “Duchess Diva” reputation, but the Duke and Duchess of Sussex do have a smaller staff compared to other Royals.
“There’s no chef, no valets, just them which is how they want it to be,” says an insider. “Of course they will have help in time, but they don’t want to be surrounded by staff at the moment.”
Instead of a nanny, it appears Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, will be on hand to help with the new baby. And, the source claims that Doria will also be there to help her daughter recover from giving birth and to get back in shape with yoga.
The insider added that Doria would be doing all of the cooking, too, and Prince Harry will supposedly be helping with the late night feedings.
Could all of this be true? Maybe not. But, the thought of Prince Harry getting up in the middle of the night to feed his son is quite sweet.
As for the rest of the family’s thoughts on the new baby, Kate Middleton told reporters that “it’s really exciting” and she wished Harry and Meghan the best as they experience their first few weeks as parents, which can be “daunting.”
Middleton added that the spring is a great time of year to have a baby (Prince Louis has an April birthday, and Princess Charlotte was born in May), and she and William look forward to meeting their new nephew and finding out his name.

Prince William told reporters that he is “glad to welcome my brother to the sleep deprivation society that is parenting.”
Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, have also issued a statement about their new grandson via the Clarence House Twitter account.
“We couldn’t be more delighted at the news, and we’re looking forward to meeting the baby when we return,” said the happy grandparents.
