William has spare time on his hands now that he has been relieved from his duty in the Royal Air Force. He is taking time off to transition to full-time royal duties and fatherhood. Just this weekend he, along with brother Harry and sister-in-law Pippa Middleton, attended the wedding of a friend. Kate, meanwhile, apparently stayed home with baby George. The family is still getting used to being away from Kate’s family and has hired nanny Jessie Webb to help with the care of the infant. Webb helped take care of William when he was a boy and has recently been seen in public with Kate. She has always been a part of his life, being a guest of honor at his 21st birthday and wedding. “The truth is she loves William very much and was happy to do anything she could to help out,” a friend told the Daily Mail. “William has fond memories of Jessie and they’ve put the idea to her that she comes back,” a former colleague told Sunday People. “I think she’s very flattered.” Like us on Facebook Even though the couple initially wanted to raise George completely on their own, they have realized that they need help in keeping up with their parental and royal duties.

Fawley, who suffers from Down Syndrome, spent six-months creating a painting of the childrens comic strip character Rupert the Bear . In her painting Fawley has the famous bear flying over the Bristol Balloon Festival in England. The special artist was hoping that she would grab the attention of the royal couple and they would agree to accept her gift to display in their home. After Fawley completed her masterpiece, Suzie Moffat, director of Hear and Sold , an organization that champions artists with Down Syndrome, took a picture of it and sent it to the palace. Kate Middleton and Prince William were interested in the painting and agreed to graciously accept it, something they dont do often. According to Moffat, soon after her letter was received, she got an enthusiastic letter from the couple telling her they would be glad to accept the painting.
