If you are feeling a little whiplashed by the conflicting reports on this blog in the past few days, you are not alone. I am feeling a little crazy myself. Hopefully, and I mean hopefully, this will be the last update. I initially hypothesized that George was with his grandparents in Berkshire. That piece is here. I was very surprised to be wrong, I should have stuck to my initial gut feeling, but it is hard to argue with pictures proving the contrary. The pictures were presented in the form of this Daily Star article. The article was a little vague and failed to mention one very important point. The pictures were taken on March 4th! That is two full days before William and Kate landed in the Maldives on the 6th.
I think we are all a little tired at this point, so the short story? George is with Carole and Michael, in Bucklebury, as I initially hypothesized. Existential crisis solved, phew.
Quick facts as being reported now on the nanny. She is in her thirties, Spanish, and reportedly is married to her job. William and Kate found her through other high-profile families for whom she has worked in the past. Craig's List was not utilized--I saw that story, I am not joking. That's about all the info we have on her, but she seems a pretty solid choice. Not the naive twenty-year old that was first rumored. This woman seems a thorough professional and entirely vetted by other demanding and trustworthy families.
Happy news is that we will see Kate one week from today for the St. Patrick's Day parade. Now that is a cheerful thought!
