In Omid Scoobie and Carolyn Durand’s new book Finding Freedom: Harry and Meghan and the Making of a Modern Royal Family, it has been revealed that Meghan and Prince Harry let go of Archie’s nanny in the middle of the night.
In the book, which details all the ins and outs of Meghan and Harry’s relationship, Scoobie and Durand claim the royals fired their night nurse for their son Archie Mountbatten Windsor.
While the personal details were not expressed, the author’s claim it was because the aide was “unprofessional and irresponsible.”
“Meghan and Harry were forced to let the nurse go in the middle of her second night of work for being unprofessional and irresponsible,” the book claims.
The couple went on to hire another night nurse who did a “fine job,” however neither Meghan or Harry felt comfortable leaving their son in the care of another nanny due to the traumatising experience they had with their first one.
The book noted that the pair ended up letting the new aide go as well.
“Neither found themselves comfortable sleeping through the night without going to check on Archie regularly,” Scobie and Durand wrote.
Though Harry and Meghan haven’t denied the claims in Finding Freedom, they both have made it loud and clear that neither of them had been interviewed for the book.
They also said that any stories shared were solely from the author’s own reporting.
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were not interviewed and did not contribute to Finding Freedom. This book is based on the authors’ own experiences as members of the royal press corps and their own independent reporting,” Meghan and Harry’s statement read.
Meghan and Harry tied the knot in May 2018 and later went on to have their first son in May of 2019.
In January 2020, the pair announced their decision to step down as senior members of the British Royal Family, detailing they would be moving to Canada with Archie.
“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution,” the couple wrote in a statement to their Instagram page, which left The Firm back at Kensington Palace in shock as they allege they were not made aware of any intention from the couple to step down.
“We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen.”
The Duke and Duchess have since relocated to Los Angeles, which is Meghan’s hometown.
The couple have both dug deep into working and are currently living in director Tyler Perry’s former mansion as they search for their forever home.
In their announcement in January, Meghan and Harry, who completed their final official day as senior royals on April 1, shared their excitement for being able to raise Archie in North America.
“This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity.
“We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.”
