The third nanny hired by Prince Harry and Meghan to look after baby Archie has been seen for the first time.
She was seen boarding one of four gas-guzzling private jets the couple took in the space of just 11 days.
The royal couple sacked their first nanny over reports she was ‘unprofessional’ and the second one was only employed to work night shifts.
But a source told The Sun 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.’
The new worker will not live at Frogmore Cottage with the Sussexes, but is believed to be accompanying them on their royal tour next month.
Meghan has lost a growing number of staff since she married into the royal family in May 2018 – including a bodyguard, personal assistant and private secretary.
Her PA Melissa Touabti quit after just six months over claims she had been reduced to tears.
A few weeks later, the couple’s private secretary, Samantha Cohen, left her role after 17 years with the Royal family.
And in January Meghan’s female bodyguard departed after just six months.
As well as these departures, assistant private secretaries Amy Pickerall and Heather Wong have also decided to leave.

Royal sources claim the couple’s decisions about who to hire to look after Archie are ‘deeply personal’ and ‘depend on the needs of the baby and parents’.
‘Often there are different needs at different stages of the baby’s life. The first nanny was a night nurse,’ the source told The Sun.
They have hired more staff however, with a housekeeper recently recruited to look after their Windsor cottage.
Harry and Meghan also recently appointed Fiona Mcilwham who used to work at the Foreign Office as their private secretary.

How Harry and Meghan’s huge seven-ton carbon footprint could cost just £170 to offset
Harry and Meghan’s trip to Nice was estimated to have had a carbon footprint of just over three tons.
The private jet generated an estimated seven times the emissions per person compared to a commercial flight, on which even a business class seat would be more carbon efficient.
This was on top of their Ibiza trip this month which was believed to have had a footprint of more than four tons.
Daren Howarth, the founder of C-Level, another carbon offsetting organisation, told the Telegraph that the figure might be closer to 12 tonnes for the Nice trip alone.
He estimated that each passenger on a private jet emits 0.6 tons of CO2 for each hour flown and therefore the four-hour return flight works out at 2.4 tons of CO2 per passenger.
He calculated, on the basis of five people flying in the jet, a total of 12 tonnes of CO2, which would cost just £168 to offset.
Sir Elton did not vouchsafe how much he contributed to Carbon Footprint.
This week they have been blasted for their use of private jets after ‘lecturing’ royal fans on their carbon footprint.
In an interview with Dr Jane Goodall for Meghan’s edition of British Vogue, Harry said they plan to have no more than two children to minimise their impact on the environment.
But there has been outrage after the couple were seen jetting off to stay in Sir Elton John’s Nice mansion for their summer holidays.
Sir Elton confirmed he had paid for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to fly to and from his £15million mansion in Nice by private jet for a holiday ‘inside the safety and tranquillity of our home’.
The 72-year-old singer claimed he had ensured Prince Harry and Meghan’s flight to and from the French Riviera last week were carbon neutral by making the ‘appropriate contribution’ to a carbon footprint fund.
His intervention came after the royal couple found themselves embroiled in another hypocrisy row today after being pictured leaving the south of France on Saturday in a fourth trip by private jet in just 11 days.

Harry and Meghan’s trip to France was estimated to have had a carbon footprint of just over three tons and their earlier trip to Ibiza was believed to have had a footprint of more than four tons. The carbon footprint of an average person in the UK is 13 tons a year.
Meanwhile, it was reported last week that Harry and Meghan asked the Queen if they could live in Windsor Castle when they were planning their life together.
She was said to have politely, but firmly, suggested that they move to Frogmore Cottage instead.
The couple’s decision to use a private jet for their Ibiza trip means the journey would have emitted six times more carbon dioxide per person than a scheduled flight from London to the Spanish island.
The flights there and back would have given out 12.5 tons of carbon dioxide. There are around 14 scheduled flights from London and the South East to Ibiza each day.
