Kate Middleton spotted with Prince William’s former nanny Jessie Webb as she helps with royal baby during McDonald’s pit-stop
The house in which the royal couple has been staying at in Anglesey, is now available to rent. (Reuters) As Prince William and Kate Middleton move into their renovated official residence at Kensington Palace at the end of September, their house in Anglesey is now available to rent. Lord and Lady Meryick, who own the posh house located on the Isle of Anglesey, have reportedly put their property up for rent, according to E! News. The house was originally intended for Sir George Meryick’s son but he moved along the coast when Prince William and Kate moved in, an insider told the entertainment website. It’s an absolutely beautiful spot, it’s breathtaking up there. It has access to a private beach which nobody else could reach, onto the estuary…You could see the water from the bedrooms on the first floor, which look over the top of the outbuildings. The outbuildings surround a farmyard and you have to go through the farm yard to get down to the beach”, the source said. William and Kate, who have been staying in north Wales along with their son Prince George, will finally bid adieu to their house in Anglesey as Williams military service ends this month. The royal couple has often called Anglesey as their first home together. Prince William said a warm goodbye to the island during Anglesey Show in August. I have never in my life known somewhere as beautiful and as welcoming as Anglesey. The views across the Menai Straits are undoubtedly among the most stunning in the British Isles. I know that both of us will miss it terribly when my Search and Rescue tour of duty comes to an end next month and we have to move elsewhere, the 31-year-old said. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for making my wife and me so welcome when we arrived here, as you do thousands of visitors each year. This island has been our first home together, and it will always be an immensely special place for us both.

However, it looks like she has decided to take on the role and help out with the royal baby after all. The couple at first had no plans to hire a nanny at the time of Prince George’s birth. LUPOPRESS.COM Middleton drove her son and her husband’s former childhood nanny back to their home at Kensington Palace. A friend of the royal pair told Katie Nicholl, Vanity Fair contributer and author of Middleton biography, “The Future Queen,” due out this month that “William said he didnt want a nanny or nurse coming in and doing shifts.” “They were agreed on that. They wanted to do the early days themselves. Middleton was dressed casually in her green Ralph Lauren blazer and black skinny pants as she headed back to her car from the rest stop to drive herself, Prince George and Webb back to their Kensington Palace home.
“Charlie described it to me as a ‘crystallizing’ moment. He believes that was the moment that William saw Kate in a very different light.” At an after-party, several accounts insist that Catherine refused William’s advances. That’s not how one witness remembers it. “I spoke to another of Kate’s friends, Andrews Sands,” Nicholl said, “who actually saw them kissing that night at an after party.” The couple lived together throughout university, and finally graduated in 2005. They moved down to London, and William got serious about joining the military. It was at this point that the Palace realized Catherine was going to be around longterm. “I know she did [watch footage of Diana dealing with the paparazzi],” Nicholl said. “William made it clear from the outset that he wanted Kate supported. So, he made his press officers available to her for advice. She had a hotline to his head of press, and his father’s legal team. “She would smile at the paparazzi rather than scowl, since she was told that they would get a better picture that way. One of the things she was advised on was to watch pictures of the Princess to see how she dealt with them, because Diana was the most photographed woman. After going through a brief split in 2007, then making a pact to be together forever while on holiday, William was ready to seal the deal.
