The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have called on a royal nanny to help with their newborn baby boy, Archie Harrison. While the couple are hoping to keep personal details of their member of staff private, HarpersBAZAAR.com has revealed that the British-born female nanny recently started her job at Frogmore Cottage. She does not live at the royal residence and does not work weekends. HELLO! understands that the royal nanny will accompany Harry and Meghan on their upcoming tour of Africa and care for Archie while his parents are attending engagements without him.

The extra help comes as Archie is about to turn six weeks old next Monday. Prince Harry and Meghan welcomed their first child on 6 May and ever since, the Duke has showed no signs of slowing down.

New dad Harry has continued with his royal duties, helping launch the countdown of the Invictus Games in the Netherlands just days after Archie was born, and also travelling to Italy to take part in a polo match for his charity Sentebale. Meghan, meanwhile, returned to the spotlight to celebrate the Queen's birthday at Trooping the Colour last weekend.

The Duchess is expected to return to work in the autumn and it sounds like she isn't doing anything by halves. She and Harry are planning a two-week tour to Africa in October, with their baby boy Archie. Stops on the itinerary include Malawi, to focus on the expansion of Harry's charity Sentebale, plus Angola, where the government is about to clear landmines from two national parks. Visits to Botswana and South Africa are also expected to be on the schedule.
