When Will and Kate are away, the Cambridge kiddos are under the watchful eye of a nanny. Maria Teresa Turrion Borralo, the woman who cares for the little royals, is trained in both security and self-defense should an elevated need to protect them arise. Reportedly, though, Meghan and Harry are planning on forgoing a nanny in favor of having the Duchess’s mother, Doria Ragland, help when she can. According to Marie Claire, Doria is planning on splitting her time between her home base of Los Angeles and the U.K. We’ll be curious to see if the couple makes their child follow these rules imposed on the Cambridge kids.

Although the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have broken with tradition a few times since getting engaged, expect a whole lot more of that from the Sussex brood. “Meghan is adamant that her baby follows her modern approach to life,” a royal insider tells Closer Weekly. “She’s adamant that her child will be brought up as an open-minded individual.”

Because Harry and Meghan’s little one isn’t high up in succession to the throne, he or she is not automatically given a title of Prince or Princess. There is a possibility that Queen Elizabeth II will hand down a decree to change that (as she did for Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis), but if not, Cheat Sheet points out that it gives the Sussex baby a more relaxed approach to being a royal. Harry and Meghan’s cutie can enjoy more time out of the public eye than, say, Prince George, who will have more royal obligations as he gets older since he is currently third in line to the throne. This is how the British royal line of succession works.
