For many years, the public image of the royal family was that they were a somewhat outdated institution, following rules and protocols that were established hundreds of years ago.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are working hard to change the public's perception by leaps and bounds, most notably in the very modern way they plan to have children.
They may not have a nanny.
Every real baby so far has had a nanny. The nanny, trained in a prestigious school, is responsible for everything from day-to-day tasks such as changing and dressing the baby to real security and transportation.
Even Princess Diana had a babysitter for her children, although she supposedly still preferred to take care of most of her children.
Prince William and Kate Middleton have a nanny for their three young children, and although she is rarely photographed, it is said that she is always on hand when her real parents need her services.
According to recent reports, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry may relinquish a baby sitter to the baby altogether. Although it seems to be inescapable to some extent, since Baby Sussex will need to be looked after by someone when Meghan Markle and Prince Harry return to their royal duties, they can seek help from a family member rather than a hired assistant.
Some reports suggest that Markle asked his mother, Doria Ragland, to help care for the baby. The new house of the royal couple, Frogmore Cottage, has a room reserved only for Ragland, which suggests that even if Ragland is not a nanny in the official sense, she will still play a major role in the baby's life.
Prince Harry will be a practical father
Traditionally, real parents have not been involved in the day-to-day chores of caring for a baby. While they undoubtedly love their children, changing diapers and getting up to help in midnight feeding has been something reserved for a nanny.
So far, at least. According to reports, Prince Harry is planning to be as involved as Meghan Markle, and will probably take significant time off from his actual duties after the baby's birth to focus on his new family.
Prince William has also worked hard to change the stigma of his real parents and took parental leave after the birth of each of his children. He is also not afraid to stay on the level of children and talk to them in public, something that seems quite natural, but that had been frowned upon in the past.
Meghan Markle wants to keep things natural
Prior to her marriage to Prince Harry, Meghan Markle was a well-known actress with a passion for healthy living and exercise. Markle likes to practice what she preaches and supposedly changed Prince Harry's diet for the better by filling her refrigerator with staples like green juice and almonds.
It seems likely that your devotion to a healthy lifestyle will be transferred to your parenting style. Although reports that she intends to create Baby Sussex as a vegan are not confirmed, she is sure to keep healthy foods at home and will probably limit the number of cakes and cookies in her hand.
Of course, the most obvious example that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry plan to do things their way is how they deliberately withdrew from the palace.
They chose to set up camp at Frogmore House, a small private residence inside. It seems that in addition to creating Baby Sussex as an active and conscious member of society, real parents also plan to ensure that the baby can enjoy childhood is a relative privacy, a marked change in the way Prince Harry was created.
