from professional paparazzi and
anyone else with a camera phone
eager to tweet royal baby pics.
>> we must remember this child
has been born into an
extraordinary world one very
different to the world that
william and harry was born into.
that brings all sorts of
pressures as they envelope and
try to keep a semblance of
privacy from what will now and
for a very long time be the most
famous child in the world.
>> in the coming months the
royal trio will be moving into a
21-room apartment being

but for now they're squeeze need
a two-bedroom cottage on the

standards. >> they're occupying at the
moment two bed rooms while their
new apartment is being
they call it an apartment.
really it's a proper family
it's got 20 rooms.
it's where princess margaret the
queen's sister used to zblif one
of those new room
-- to live.
>> what do you expect the
nursery at kensington palace
might look like?
>> i think it will be a very mix
of old and new.
she's bought this newfangled
buggy stroller to carry the baby
we'd expect her to have very
up-to-date pieces for the baby.
>> this woman may know more than
anyone about that little
sanctuary for the heir to the
>> are there paparazzi staking
out outside your door?
>> well, we have had some people
with very long lenses.
>> lucinda croft runs the baby
boutique dragons in the posh
area of london near kensington palace .
her mother started the business
in 1979 , and princess diana
became a client.
>> and she walked in.
and she was just so normal and
you sort of quickly forgot she
was princess diana .
>> diana later hired dragons to
create nurseries for william and
harry. >> and you're not going to tell
me if you're designing for this
royal baby, right?
>> sorry to disappoint you.
no, we just have that as a rule.
we like to protect our clients.
but if they want to tell people then that's lovely.
>> we had a lot of fun with it.
>> but an if tradition holds,
dragons has created this special
nursery at the grove nor hotel
fit for a future monarch.
>> was this all designed with a
royal baby perhaps in mind?
>> well, we think everyone's
baby feels royal to them, doesn't it?
>> but even with an elegant
nursery at the palace, william
and kate are determined to raise
their child in a decidedly
>> they've said they weren't
going to be forced into this
royal mold of being a couple
with lots of servants and being dictated to.
>> beginning with the nanny.
just like centuries of royal
children before him, prince
charles was primarily raised by
nannies, spawning an interesting
theory. >> prince charles talks of one
of his nannies, maybe e
of his nannies, mabel e of his nannies, mabel ande of his nannies, mabel anderson
as being his haven of security.
his wife camilla does look
rather like this nanny.
it seems the royals tend to
marry their nannies as opposed
to their mothers.
william 's nanny looks rather
strikingly like kate middleton .
and that expresses a real truth,
which is that the royals look to
them for emotional support,
critical emotional support.
>> but with william and kate ,
those powerful, all-trusted
nannies could be on their way
they just may be bucking that tradition.
>> how many people do you think
they'll have on duty?
>> i think they'll probably have
a very small number of people
i think they'll keep the help
down to a bare minimum.
>> so the couple are said to be
looking for just a part-time
nanny to help with the baby and
possibly on future royal tours .
still, a trusted mary poppins
doesn't just pop down from the
sky like in the movies.
how will they find her?
>> finding a royal nanny, i
suppose, is a very difficult
thing like celebrities, loyalty
and discretion are absolute musts.
there's a lot of word about that
goes on in royal circles.
>> william and kate recently
hired a new housekeeper for
their kensington palace apartment, recommended by the
>> that's the way it works.
i think they do keep things very
>> but after all, who needs a
nanny when you have the ultimate
one on call?
a new kind of grandma is coming
to the royal household .
