Speaking via live link from the US, the nanny said: "No, I haven't been asked to be the nanny for the royals. I would love the job to take care of any baby, taking care of any baby is to take care of the parents."

She has also reportedly looked after the children of Hollywood star Jessica Alba, as well as the brood of singer Justin Timberlake and his wife Jessica Biel.

Speaking on GMB, Connie explained her work and how she supports parents during the first few difficult months as a 'live-in' baby nurse.

She said on the programme: "I think the type of nanny that parents should have is one that will guide them and walk alongside of them. Hold their hands and accomplish them along the way.

I would love the job to take care of any baby, taking care of any baby is to take care of the parents.

"Sometimes parents need to be nudged in the right direction. No nanny can be the parent and no parent can be the nanny."

It follows reports that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex had hired a third nanny for baby Archie in just six weeks.

According to The Sun, a replacement was needed after two nannies previously hired to tend to the newborn stopped working for the royal couple.

It is not known whether those nannies left of their own accord or were removed from their post.
