Mary Poppins killed a bunch of people on her other assignments, you can't convince me otherwise.

All I can think after reading this is that I clearly have no idea what a cottage is.

"give their children most 'normal' upbringing possible"

...by living in a vast royal estate dripping with wealth, and a stone's throw from Buckingham Palace. So normal.

So the domestic help will won't sleep over but will just commute as & when required? Or maybe they will have to live in VAN down by the RIVER!!!

Not a live-in nanny.

So they aren't firing her, just renting her a nearby apartment.

I did think it was strange that they lived in Kensington, because it's right on a busy street and it borders a public park.  Having looked at it, it seems very insecure and public for a future head of state.

Yup, that's why we don't have a live in nanny. It's because of room and all.

I doubt it is a lack of room, it would be the lack of a Nanny Suite with full bath and kitchen which can be locked out of the main house.

They wouldn't have the Nanny just stay in a bedroom in the main house.

Why do I know Charles is going to be King while those kids are kids and NOT William, but the Daily Mail headline writer doesn't?

Charles is 73 already. It wouldn't be very surprising if he died within the next decade.

So, yeah, William may well be king before their children are all adults.

It's not on a busy street. It is on a very quiet street lined with embassies and is sandwiched between 2 very busy streets.

I imagine it's hard for the kids looking out the window at the park, which is pretty nice.

Mummy, may I go play wif all those children running around, playing wif their dogs or riding bicycles?
No Peppa, I mean, George, you are better than them, so you may not. We will take the helicopter to the cottage near gran's castle so you may be a normal child there.

They usually die young from hereditary diseases brought on by the inbreeding.

Well, one in the past century may have (Elizabeth II had a 31 year old uncle die due to porphyria).

One also died due to epilepsy, but there is no other record of it in their family so probably not hereditary.

The only other of her father's siblings or their children to die under 60 was George VI whose lungs were destroyed by his smoking. Her younger sister died at 71, due to effects of her smoking and alcoholism.

Yes and it looks like all the inbreeding really landed on Prince Charles.

Meghan is dead?

Then again she's pretty much The Antichrist according to "Royal Experts".
