Reading a story about Kate, Will & baby in USA today

'Will and Kate were eager to do most of the baby care themselves, Nicholl says. They even opted against bringing in a maternity nurse, which most new parents in Britain get through the National Health Service.'

WTAF?!? Am I the only one who didn't get one confused What will Americans think of us if they believe that!!

She will be Queen Consirt rather than Queen regent smile

*consort

If a maternity nurse is a midwife, that means they opted against having a midwife? confused

Although actually, that possibly is correct if she was under care of ob/gyn consultant, rather than a common or garden midwife? grin
