Pregnant Princess Beatrice has ‘already hired’ a Norland nanny & a baby nurse

Prince Jean-Christophe Napoléon and Olympia d'Arco-Zinneberg are married

We haven’t gotten many updates from Princess Beatrice on her pregnancy, which she announced on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s third wedding anniversary in May. Reportedly, Beatrice intended the timing of the announcement as a “dig” at Harry and Meghan, and she wasn’t the only one acting petty and “look at meeeeee” on that day. But what’s strange is that… there has barely been any gossip since then. It seems some royal women are allowed to gestate quietly and some aren’t. Or maybe no one even cares that much about Bea! Come on, that’s not true. I’m very interested in hearing the gossip about how Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi got together, how he dumped his baby-mama fiancee and what he’s getting out of this connection. But instead of all that, we’re getting stories about how Beatrice has already hired a nanny? From the Mail’s Talk of the Town column:

She’s already secured a family pile in Oxfordshire and now ultra-organised Princess Beatrice and her husband Edo Mapelli-Mozzi have a nanny nailed on, too.

Bea may still have five months to go before she gives birth to her first child but she’s already hired a £1,000-a-week nanny from the famous Norland agency and a £200-a-night maternity nurse.

Bea must already be realising that bringing up a Royal baby is an expensive business – luckily the Princess, 32, is rolling in it thanks to her top job as a vice-president for management company Afiniti.

[From The Daily Mail]

“Already hired”? As in, the nanny is already on the ground, so to speak? Or Beatrice has already called Norland to arrange for a nanny to start when the baby comes? Hm. I do think that Norland is probably a lot like a fancy elite school – there’s a wait list and you have to prepare months, perhaps years, in advance. Of course Beatrice is making arrangements for “the best” nannies and baby nurses ahead of time. But it would be kind of odd if the Norland nanny was already working for Beatrice. Also: I guess Bea and Edo ended up buying that £3 million home in the trendy Cotswolds area. Still curious about who paid for what, but I guess the York princesses’ finances are never going to be closely investigated.

    Well, I would dearly love a home in the Cotswolds. I don’t really care about Beatrice.

    • clomo says:

      I know ton of famous people love it there, I haven’t been since I was a child, so about 100 years ago. If you don’t mind my asking, what makes the Cotswolds so desirable?

      • Merricat says:

        It’s very beautiful, you should google images. Sort of storybook.

      • (TheOG) Jan90067 says:

        It’s just so damned pretty!!! 😊 I love it there. Pastural, lovely stone homes with thatched roofs… I really loved my time there.

      • clomo says:

        As soon as this virus business settles down I am going to England and will definitely check it out. Cursed anti-vexers. I am a vaccinated U.K. citizen but it just feels unsafe traveling. Anyhow.. I have no bad feelings for Beatrice, she has been bullied and her parents are the worst, so hopefully this dandy lad treats her well and she can escape the toxic scene back at the palace and live happily ever after..

      • Jaded says:

        It’s one of the most beautiful places I’ve been — looks like something out of a Beatrice Potter book with loads of thatched chocolate box cottages, gorgeous views, wonderful quaint pubs and shops and gardens to die for.

    • Mac says:

      Me, too. It’s one of my favorite places.

    • bluhare says:

      So would I. Its absolutely beautiful. Cornwall would be second. I guess then I’d be renting from Charles.

    • Becks1 says:

      I’ve never been but pictures look gorgeous!

  2. Chaine says:

    I kind of hate how wealthy people with literally nothing to do hire other people to take care of their children. And don’t say but she’s a Vice President of management at whatever company, that is a figurehead position to draw attention to their brand and we all know it. She doesn’t do jack for her supposed job.

    • (TheOG) Jan90067 says:

      THANK YOU! She’s been a figure head for every “job” she held (for a year or less for each). I won’t soon forget the one (I think it was with Sony?) that she took SEVENTEEN VACATIONS in that one year! I don’t care if they’re “long weekends” … NO ONE else in that company, save the CEO and top mgt. if that, would be allowed to get away with that. She gets hired for the name and any connection she can bring, NOT her “skill set” for that actual job. Ppffbbtt!

      At least her sister actually WORKS/ed at the jobs she has had.

      There is just something about Bea that I do not like. She strikes me as very much like her mother in a LOT of respects.

      • Nic919 says:

        I think she’s also arrogant like her father. Eugenie seems less out of touch and it’s interesting we didn’t hear reports that she has a Norland nanny lined up for August.

      • (TheOG) Jan90067 says:

        Agreed Nic. She is one that takes that “Blood Princess” crap VERY seriously.

      • Over it says:

        I also don’t like Bea, I like her sister though. Bea is just as stuck up as her father I think. Please, this chick doesn’t work. And I bet the queen is paying for that house as a wedding gift. She won’t have to pay it back though be

      • Over it says:

        Sorry got cut off. Lol. She and her husband won’t have to pay back that money because they are the right color of royal. Megs was never afforded the right to be pregnant in peace because again she is the wrong color of royal. These people sicken me. Glad Harry took his family and bounce out of crazy town uk

      • Still_Sarah says:

        @ OverIt : Edo is a real estate developer in London and is said to be worth $700 million. I don’t think he needs anyone to buy him (and his wife) a house. He is very rich.

      • Sofia says:

        @Still_Sarah: look I don’t doubt that Edo may have money but $
        £700 million?!?!?!? £700 million my arse.

        Plus a lot of these online celebrity net worths are bs and are not accurate and overly exaggerated

        Edit: okay that’s what his company is worth but a lot of that money comes from property the company manages or developed. Some of it probably doesn’t actually belong to the company, they just developed it.

      • The Recluse says:

        She gives off a mini-me vibe of both of her parents and I am just so ambivalent about her.

    • Songs (Or it didnt happen) says:

      I love my daughter with all my heart, getting to be her Mom is a blessing I don’t deserve. But I cannot impress upon you how MUCH I would have loved someone to help me when she was tiny (or even now). Just someone trustworthy that could take care of her while I slept for longer than 2 hours, or so I could take a shower, in private, with the door closed. My experience as a new Mom would have been so much better and calmer if there was someone to change one or two of the day’s dirty diapers or just let me zone out for a while. Every Mom should have that kind of help and reinforcement. It shouldn’t cost money, but unfortunately it does a lot of the time. So if someone actually has the money to have that kind of help, GOOD for them.

      • Ann says:

        Yes, I am not going to judge her for getting a nanny. She can afford one. Just because the nanny is there doesn’t mean she’s doing all the child care. Now, maybe she will be, we don’t know. But we can’t know for sure so I’m not going to jump to conclusions.

        I was working when my kids were little. I had a nanny, but she never did much housework because I wanted her to focus on the kids while I was gone, so that as on me. And she split the minute I got home lol!

      • Lizzie says:


      • thaisajs says:

        Especially a night nurse. Oh man, I wish I could have afforded that. My daughter had colic and it was a nightmare for about six months. That was one of my regrets. I could have sprung for a night nurse once a week and it would have made my life so much nicer in those early days.

    • Sofia says:

      I agree. She’s there to schmooze clients who want to meet a real life princess and maybe bring some upper class friends as clients to the company or whatever. I doubt she does a 9-5 or whatever.

    • MerlinsMom1018 says:

      But she’s “rolling in it” don’tcha know???? Due to her “top job” 🙄
      Babies are expensive business, yes indeed, but if you can hire a Norland Nanny and a night maternity nurse, then you will do just fine.
      Come talk to me when you’re a struggling single Mom (or Dad) or family trying to decide whether to pay the lights or rent or water and how much can we afford for food this week?

  3. Abena Asantewaa says:

    Poor Meghan, was never given that honour and privilege to enjoy her prenancies in peace, this makes me sad for her and Harry

  4. Piratewench says:

    If I had had the means I would have had night help with my babies. It’s a luxury in the modern world. But in a more tribal situation I think new mothers had more support. More hands, more help with more communal living. We are so sequestered in our modern homes, and new mothers often end up struggling mightily all alone all night. I ended up so exhausted I didn’t even trust myself to drive, my son didn’t sleep more then 90 minutes at a stretch for his whole first year. My daughter did a little better but still… a nighttime doula would have been wonderful. Even one five-hour stretch of sleep here and there makes a huge difference.
    I don’t even know who I was during that sleep struggle. I was a zombie. I aged quite a bit. If I had her money I would definitely employ nighttime help!

    • MissMarirose says:

      That’s a very good point. I’m old enough to remember when Hillary Clinton got a ton of blowback for saying “it takes a village to raise a child,” but she was right. That’s how it was done historically when people lived a more communal lifestyle in small towns with multiple generations under the same roof. That’s much rarer now.

    • SarahCS says:

      My friend had a really traumatic experience giving birth to her first so when she had her second two years later they hired a nanny/night nurse for two weeks after Alex was born. Fortunately his delivery was much easier (much smaller head than his brother) but she says it was such a great investment, even just for those two weeks.

      Mothers seem to be under so much pressure, if you don’t want to be involved in raising your kids at all then maybe don’t have kids (not saying that’s what Bea is doing), but if you can afford help and think that would be good for you then you’ll get no judgement from me.

    • Kfg says:

      I lucked out with having my mother and aunts and SIL and MIL help me with my son in the beginning. I think if you know you’re going to need help and can afford it, get help. I have friends who had to do it without familial support and it’s horrific with 2 having severe PPD and partners who didn’t help as much. So no hate to hiring help if you can afford it. I don’t see Edo letting Pedo prince too close to his children and Fergie is too much of a liability so I’m guessing Bea won’t have much family help.

  5. Sherry Greengrass says:

    Andrew and his family are so miserable and entitled. Does anyone remember Andrew’s face all during Harry & Meghan’s wedding?

    Also, there was a GIF years ago of Bea bumping Kate as she walked by her at some royal event. Would love to find that again.

    • GuestWho says:

      I saw that GIF the other day for the first time! It was actually Eugenie (unless they both did it at different times). The look on Kate’s face was priceless – and the fact that Will ignored it was pretty telling.

    • (TheOG) Jan90067 says:

      I think it was that time they were coming out of church at the Christmas service. I remember that, too!

    • LovesitinNM says:

      I would like to see that!

    • JanetDR says:

      Someone please, please post a link! I searched, but couldn’t find it.

  6. Snuffles says:

    “I’m very interested in hearing the gossip about how Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi got together, how he dumped his baby-mama fiancee and what he’s getting out of this connection.”

    I’m sure he’s getting all kinds of hook ups, business opportunities and tax breaks being a part of the family.

    • Over it says:

      Lol.yes. Let’s talk about his other baby mama and bea the home wrecker. I imagine he gets royal connections like the Middleton do .

      • Pinellas Pixie says:

        Edo was the homewrecker as he was the one who chose to leave his baby mama for Bea. I don’t care for her and she played along but the one who betrayed Dara Huang was Edo not Bea.

      • Tessa says:

        Long time boyfriend Dave Clark broke up with Bea after 10 years of dating. Edo was sort of a rebound. There are some red flags with Edo. Time will tell IMO.

  7. Nomegusta says:

    Lol she really thought she was relevant enough to overshadow her cousin, lol

    Turns out I follow his son’s mother on insta (I went on an ‘everything interior design’ following spree when I was redecorating my house). She does great work, I’m glad she hasn’t been pulled into the sh*t sandwich orbit that is the Windsors.

  8. JRenee says:

    Wait what?? The pregnancy announcement was supposed to overshadow the Sussex anniversary, really? ?

    • Pinellas Pixie says:

      IKR? Bea must think people are really into her and excited about her life. How disappointed she will be if she ever figures out the truth.

    • Truthiness says:

      Rofl. I find that part ADORABLE. Between that and the fallopian tubes hat I hope she never changes.

      • LMR says:

        I should have learned by now not to eat or drink when reading Celebitchy. I spit water everywhere at “fallopian tubes hat”.

  9. Amy Too says:

    If she has five months of pregnancy left, then did she publicly announce her pregnancy like the day she got pregnant?

  10. Bettyrose says:

    Rewatching Downton Abbey these days and was just thinking about this. Why would a young woman with options choose a formal, old fashioned, uniform wearing nanny career in 2021? I get why lots and lots of young women are short term nannies to pay off student loans or to live in a foreign country, but the Norland nanny career path to actually wear a uniform and be a servant in someone’s home? I don’t get it. If caring for children is your passion why wouldn’t one be a school teacher instead?

    • (TheOG) Jan90067 says:

      A Norland Nanny can get a 6 figure salary and perks that a “regular” nanny doesn’t usually. Also, they’re supposed to be *very* well trained in other than “just” childcare/CPR. I believe they even are trained to help foil kidnapping, evasive driving, etc.

      • Nic919 says:

        I’m sure they are well trained and paid, but the difference is that these types of nannies seem to live with the family and have no lives of their own, unlike teachers, bodyguards etc. It’s similar to being a nun in a way, except they actually get paid. It just seems like a large sacrifice so that rich parents don’t need to be too involved in the dirty parts of raising their own kids.

    • Piratewench says:

      A school teacher is so different than being a nanny. I’ve been both. Nannies get to go home in the evening and rest and have their own life, teachers work nearly round the clock. Nannies are usually in a supported, caring home environment, teachers are rarely in a supportive environment.
      Being a nanny really is sweet and fulfilling (although lacking in intellectual stimulus, same as being a stay-at-home mom it has pros and cons). The day I left my nanny position I was overcome with emotion, knowing I wouldn’t be there feeding and caring for the kids I had come to love so dearly. I kept in touch of course. But it was a lovely way to make a living: being there for little ones, being the one to hug them and read to them, play with them and feed them. It was much easier and happier than teaching. I’ll never go back to teaching, at least as a nanny I was treated as someone of value by my employers.

      • Nic919 says:

        I have friends who have nannies in that similar context, in that they are there during the day when the parents are out working and then they can go to their own home in the evening. But this doesn’t seem to be the scenario with these elite rich families and so the sacrifice of your life seems much greater. Especially when you look at someone like nanny Maria who has been there full time for eight years and like more years to go until Louis is old enough. When does she get her own life? So of course she better be paid a lot for that sacrifice because it’s a huge one.

      • Becks1 says:

        Yeah I think the schedule of someone like Maria Borallo (i think I got that right) is very different from the nanny who who provides childcare while the parents work. Nanny Maria lives there full time, she travels with them, she attends all the family events (weddings, christenings, etc), she is probably there on Christmas day with the children while William and Kate are with the adults, etc. It seems like a big sacrifice because it does not seem she really has her own life. Even if she gets time off during the week – she’s going to be in London or Norfolk or Bucklebury depending on where the Cambridges are, so how easy is it for her to establish friendships?

        I don’t know, I don’t judge childcare in general (my boys were in daycare FT started at 12 weeks so clearly I don’t lol), but something about the nannies for these uber rich people is a little off putting for me. But, not my life.

      • Linda says:

        I have a nanny who lives with me full time. Its a really common scenario in other parts of the world and non western countries. You don’t have to be wealthy to have one.

      • Becks1 says:

        @Linda oh I know that and I know people here in the US who have live-in nannies, its actually pretty common for people who work funky schedules here (think doctors etc.) I know a lot of people who have hired au pairs from other countries and they live with the family full-time.

        But this just seems to have a different feel to it for me, where it seems that Maria’s whole life is supposed to revolve around the Cambridges. It’s not “just” that she lives there full time, its the overall “package” so to speak. Like Maria’s role in life is to raise the children for them so that they are never bothered.

      • Jan says:

        Are you serious? Being a nanny is sweet and fulfilling, it depends who you work for.
        There too many horror stories out there about being nannies being treated like indentured slaves.

      • candy says:

        This reminds of that nanny job announcement that went viral recently, and the family got some backlash for wanting three nannies on rotation, and someone who could travel with them several months a year. The job description reeked of entitlement, and you can just tell these personal staff aren’t treated well. But I can totally see the perks of being a live-in nanny to the wealthy. It would give you a certain view of the world that most people can’t otherwise have.

        That said, I’ve always hated babysitting and I probably wouldn’t enjoy being a nanny.

      • RoyalBlue says:

        My friends had live-in nannies and they all bake a one month vacation in their contracts. So for one month in the summer they either vacation the same time the nanny is gone, or they are frantically looking for a substitute until the nanny is back.

        I am sure nanny Maria has a vacation clause, sick leave clause etc where she does get personal time off. Of course while Maria is gone, one of the many other Cambridge nannies fill in for her.

      • Isabella says:

        The Nanny Diaries paints a much different picture. Sounds like you were with a dream family.

    • Mac says:

      I have no idea what teachers are paid in the UK, but 1,000 pounds a week is a lot more than many teachers get paid in the US.

      • Isabella says:

        The agency charges 1,000 pounds/week, but that doesn’t mean the nanny gets it. What percentage does nanny get?

    • Bettyrose says:

      Okay if the money is that good I can see it. and I checked the school’s s site, it’s only three terms at a total cost of 15,000 pounds with guaranteed employment. So the economics makes sense. But do they go home at the end of the day? I thought these were live in positions? That’s where the appeal ends and the servitude vibe begins. But I’d happily be wrong about that.

      • Lili says:

        15 grand for a years course is a lot of money, a year in Uni is 9 grand a year and students have to take out a loan to study . i reckon one would have to be seriously into kids to tke that on. 48grand a year is that guaranteed pay, some how i dont think it is, i think you’d only get that wage after a few years of experience. but good on them. if edo is worth all that much money.

      • fluffy_bunny says:

        That’s not bad considering what Americans pay for college. I pay over 50k a year for tuition and room and board for my kid. It’s art school so supplies are expensive. The end result of his education could be him drawing anime porn for commissions.

      • bettyrose says:

        ITA with fluffy_bunny. 15 grand UK or 20K US for an education with the promise of 5 competing employer offers (per the Norland website) is beyond a good deal in the U.S. where it’s common to go into six figure debt for a low five figure starting salary (plus the other benefits of a university education). On that account, I absolutely understand taking a one year course that leads to job security. It’s the wearing uniforms and playing the role of an old school house employee that I question. Perhaps in most homes it’s not like that at all, it’s a normal nanny/family dynamic, but in posh homes I’m picturing the exact dynamic Nic919 describes above, and I have a hard time wrapping my mind around a nanny born in the 21st century being okay with that.

  11. equality says:

    So Bea is “rolling in it” because of a figurehead position she got because of royal connections and that is fine?

  12. Kalana says:

    Edo is so pretty. He’s like a doll.

    • Merricat says:

      That’s just what I thought, he’s a little porcelain doll.

    • Bettyrose says:

      That’s totally what I looked for in a dude when I was 13.

    • L4frimaire says:

      He is pretty and stylish, but not very tall. Neither of them come across as the brightest bulbs. The York girls seem to have a bit of a style deficit but they actually have really nice curvy figures and when they get the clothes right, while not conventionally pretty but they’re actually very attractive. I get the impression Bea and Eugenie have very different personalities and Bea likes the limelight a lot more.

      • cassandra says:

        My theory is that Beatrice is actually very pretty in person but doesn’t photograph well.

      • Thirtynine says:

        I read an interview with him a few months ago, in his business role, and he came across really well. Thoughtful and intelligent and deeply into art and design.

      • Nic919 says:

        It’s amazing how little he was criticized for the overlap in his relationship with the mother of his son and Beatrice whereas Meghan got raked over the coals for an ex husband she hadn’t been with for years. And Cory, whose mother could only praise Meghan even after the break up.

  13. nina says:

    Her husband sure does love the cameras. Always ready to pose.

  14. Imara219 says:

    I don’t know. The York daughters s don’t seem that problematic. If I had the means I would hore a nanny/night nurse. I would have a 2nd child in a hot second if I could. I also never believed the release of her baby announcement was a slight. Aren’t the Yorks close to the Wessexs? I thought Megan was friends with them before she even knew Harry. Anywhoodle, it sounds like she’s making domestic boss moves 😄. Must be nice

    • Truthiness says:

      Several years ago, the vacation schedule for Bea at her new job was published. She was leaving at the drop of a party napkin, it looked insane. Plus there was that kerfuffle about Kate “needing” to curtsey to Bea and Eugenie because they were blood princesses and she only married in. Then she started dating a guy who was already engaged, living with his future spouse with their child. Kinda problematic.

      • Imara219 says:

        I don’t care if they made Kate curtsey. I don’t care about their asinine out of date protocol but if they made Kate do it that makes me laugh. I don’t care that her cushy job let her work non existing hours– that’s on her job as much as her. On a scale of things that matter, that’s really low and it’s on par with a lot of royals and aristocrats. And lastly, the only thing I would kinda care about is the Edo thing but by some accounts he didn’t cheat, he course corrected. If he cheated, that sucks but that isn’t verified so like I said, personally she’s not that problematic. She’s elitist and snobby 🤷🏾‍♀️

      • Truthiness says:

        You’re right. Compared to her dad she’s a paragon of virtue and not problematic at all!

      • Mia says:

        I find it funny how people have so much issue with ‘married in princesses’ being made to feel ‘less than’ for having to curtesy to ‘blood princesses’ in a family steeped in archaic rules centered on patriarchy and literal misogyny. Somehow girls born into families where boys are better just for being boys should feel horrible for exercising what little powers they do have.

        And no one mentions in the stories looking to mock Princess Anne, Alexandra, and the York Princesses, that the Queen allegedly agreed that they should be accorded the respect that is given unquestioningly to their male counterparts. These ‘blood princesses’ husbands can never be ‘married in princes’ and we are told that is just the rules. Those husbands are bowing to the male ‘blood princes’ no matter the situation. But somehow we should feel really bad that women marrying princes in the family have to curtesy when the men they depend upon for that ‘status’ are not present. Now there is a flaw in the system? Nah. “That’s just the rules…” And tbh it is first world problems.

  15. Susan says:

    So I get the gist of it, they’ve “already” (gasp!) hired the nanny, but as a non-royal non-famous person, I had my daycare/ childcare lined up in the second trimester as well. There are waitlists, and child care is no joke! Now granted, she doesn’t have a job like I do (and the pittance of maternity leave that I did!) but I don’t see the outrage here. I’d imagine you wouldn’t want to wait til the baby is born to line up the childcare whatever the type.

  16. L4frimaire says:

    Ok, to be fair, getting childcare lined up is something that needs to be done way in advance, and they probably got on the wait list and interviewed a few candidates, so better to get that set up before birth. Some preschools in my area require you to get on the waitlist before the baby is born, even though they don’t take students until they’re 2.5. Everyone acts sometimes like the York’s are broke but are they really? Edo is a realtor with connections so he probably got them a good deal on whatever house they’re buying. Look at how it was disclosed Peter Philips is worth $14mil, and what does he do outside of shilling milk? All these royals who perform down to earth modesty are at least double digit millionaires, which is small money in the .001% world they live in, but they have the perks, privileges and access that go way beyond their paper. It’s good to be related to the Queen.

    • fluffy_bunny says:

      I moved states when my kid was a toddler and I came from an area where you put your kid on the waiting list for kindergarten when they’re born for the good schools. I moved to an area with shitty public schools so I called around to the private schools asking about waiting lists and they acted like I was insane for calling years ahead of time. We never ended up clearing the waiting list for our preferred daycare.

    • RoyalBlue says:

      And after thousands of years of plundering and stealing other people’s land the royals should have enough stowed away to support every one of their future progeny. I suspect they just released some funds from both of their Trusts to allow Bea and Edo to finance this purchase.

    • Lizzie says:

      Yeah, getting childcare lined up doesn’t seem to be headline news.

  17. candy says:

    Of all the royal grandchildren, Bea has always struck me as the most typical bright young thing. She loves being wealthy and connected. I feel like the others are more down to earth.

    • L4frimaire says:

      Same. She likes to be seen, has no problem hanging out with a morally ambiguous despot as long as they’re being lavished with freebies and perks, and was right there with her dad when he did that weird appearance at the Chinese ambassador’s residence last year to test the waters on public life.

    I dont care one way or another about their baby arrangements but I do not think either of the York sisters are rolling in the dough from their work lives. Edo is rich. That’s enough.

    That baby nurse will be worth every penny, wish I could do that.

    Is this a deal with the norland academy?
    Even though, it is already famous it doesnt hurt to get a publicity just to remind those wealthy parents that we are still here and famous related royalty prefer us because we are the best.
    Maybe fergie is the one who is handling all of this.

    I’m not surprised to hear she has hired staff and those nannies are pretty famous for their training, people go to that Nanny college expecting to be hired by the rich.

    If I had that level of $$, you bet I’d hire the most qualified Nanny I could find.
    The cotswolds is a beautiful place, lovely scenery and hella expensive.
    If I won the lottery you betcha I’d buy a pretty cottage and move right in.

    So it’s fine for Bea to be ‘rolling in it’ but not the Sussexes?! And how is she not ‘trading on the royal brand’ etc etc. And how many bathrooms does the house have? Inquiring minds want to know! So much ish in this.

      That was my take too. The whole tone of the Daily Fail’s story is quite neutral. In fact, it’s so matter-of-fact that they seem to say it’s ok for the York girl & Edo to hire an expensive nanny, night nurse and buy a multi million $ cottage (2nd home) because they’re “rolling in it.” Whereas H & M living in an expensive home in Montecito is SO shocking and outrageous apparently that the price and # of bathrooms is STILL referenced years the purchase.

    Epstein paying for all this too? We know the tricks her mommy & daddy play.
