Fans spot rare glimpse of Harry and Meghan’s rarely seen mystery nanny on their tour of Africa

Fans have gone wild over a rare sighting of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s mystery nanny during their tour of Africa.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex kicked off their 10-day tour in South Africa yesterday morning, arriving at Cape Town airport on a British Airways flight.

Meghan, 38, was seen carrying four-month-old Archie as she disembarked the plane with Harry, 35, and eagle-eyed fans were quick to point out that their nanny could be seen in the background of one of the shots. 

Dressed in a black wrap cardigan she could be seen climbing down the stairs of the plane, as she followed the smiling couple to their car. 

This is only the second time their nanny, whose name is not known, has been seen, after she was first spotted accompanying Harry and Meghan to Sir Elton John’s home in the south of France last month, also dressed in an inconspicuous black outfit. 

The nanny reportedly does not live at Windsor Castle’s Frogmore Cottage with the Sussexes, but was always said to be accompanying them on the royal tour.

Sharing a picture to Instagram, one fan account wrote: ‘In the second slide you can see Archie’s nanny!’, while another added: ‘Did the nanny get hired for the trip?’.

Elsewhere one queried: ‘Do they have a Norland nanny too?’, while one wrote: ‘I wonder if that’s their nanny?’. 

The couple reportedly found a good match with their third and current nanny, while the first was was reportedly not kept on over reports she was ‘unprofessional’, and the second was only employed to work night shifts. 

Last month a source told The Sun that their third recruit has ‘fitted into the family really well’, adding: ‘Meghan is a very hands-on mum but the new nanny is a godsend.

‘She’s great with little Archie and just adores him. Harry and Meghan are very happy with her.’ 

This month reports surfaced claiming that Harry and Meghan opted against making their nanny wear a uniform during their search for staff, saying their life is not ‘Mary Poppins’.

Royal reporter Omid Scobie opened up about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s search for a nanny on Yahoo’s Royal Box, and claimed that Harry was unhappy about the idea of ‘a woman in a uniform’.

 Speaking on the weekly show, Omid said: ‘One of the things that Harry said was, ‘I don’t want a woman in a uniform around my child. This isn’t Mary Poppins, we’re going to have a normal household’.’

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, both 37, employ a Norland nanny called Maria who is often seen in a traditional uniform looking after Prince George, 6, Princess Charlotte, 4, and Prince Louis, 1.

Harry and Meghan arrived for day one of their 10-day tour of South Africa yesterday morning, and kicked it off with a visit to  Nyanga Township to meet with young people from the The Mbokodo Club Project.

Nyanga, in the Cape Flats just outside of Cape Town, was the first stop on their first royal tour as a family, while four-month-old son Archie Mountbatten Windsor stayed behind at their residence with a nanny.

Today the pair kicked off the second day of their whirlwind tour of Africa on the Cape Town beach where they met young surfers who use the ocean as a therapeutic escape from their violent communities.

Harry and Meghan travelled to Monwabisi Beach, on the outskirts of the city, to learn about the work of Waves For Change, which helps vulnerable children from township and challenging communities through the power of surfing.
