Whenever we have seen some of the recent Royal wedding televised internationally, it's only human to wonder just how many people it takes behind the scenes to make everything happen. Then of course, there's the Queen to consider. How many maids does she have? How many people actually work in the Royal Palace? Whenever a baby is added to the family, we can only assume that there is an entire staff tending to that sweet little babe. After all, it's not abnormal here in the United States for parents to have nannies and night nurse's ready to go. However, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry might have us all in shock when it comes to their staff.
While we have all totally been smitten with Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor and keeping our eyes and ears open for any Royal baby updates, we can't help but also wonder how parent life is treating the new couple and what exactly is happening behind closed doors. (See what product we think they need) Get ready for some big new because Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's staff at Frogmore Cottage is shocking.

Apparently the new parents have chosen to take on this role as new parents with a completely minimalistic attitude: without any staff at all.
Obviously this idea in completely different than the way that we imagine any royal to live, but it's working for them - so more power to Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry.

Taking things one step further, they haven't even hired anyone to work in the kitchen or any other part of their home either, so this notion isn't just strictly referring to baby care. Currently, Meghan's mom, Doria Ragland is living with the couple and helping out.
Currently, Doria even has her very own wing at Frogmore Cottage and a source shared with Cosmopolitan that her help has been "indispensable."
However, there are definitely some things to take into consideration like who is running all the errands? Who is driving the couple from place to place? Not to mention all those new baby pediatrician appointments. While we totally applaud the Royal couple for doing all the new baby things on their own, being a part of the Royal family does mean that they need a level of discretion whenever it comes to the comings and going of their life. Because of that, time will only tell if they are able to continue everything on their own.
