NEW ZEALAND-BOUND: Prince George is held by his father, Prince William as he arrives with Kate Middleton for christening at the Chapel Royal.

Wanted: Nanny for a prince.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are searching for a nanny to look after Prince George during their tour of New Zealand and Australia in April, the Daily Mail newspaper has reported.

George's current nanny, Jessie Webb - who looked after Prince William when he was a child - has reached the end of her contract.

Webb, 71, came out of retirement to look after George on the condition that she would work only for three months, the Daily Mail reported.

William and Kate are apparently now discreetly looking for extra help for their month-long trip.

Owing to the Royals' hectic schedule - travelling around both countries in less than a month - they will need "round-the-clock help" for George, the Daily Mail said.

In August William told CNN that George "doesn't want to go to sleep that much" and Prince Harry has said the young prince can be a bit of a rascal.

Kate's personal hairdresser, Amanda Cook Tucker, is also expected to join the Royal tour.

A spokesman for the Royal couple last night declined to comment.
