The pediatric nurse first started working for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex shortly after Archie's birth in May 2019, back when both were working royals and living at Frogmore Cottage.

"I thought to myself, 'I wonder how their nannies look, do they wear heels?' Prince William has got a Norland Nanny, so they've got a brown uniform that for my skin color, and the way it looks in khaki brown, I knew it wouldn't even go, it would just not work," Khumalo revealed. "So [I thought] I'll wear something dark and nice kitten heels, but I'll look presentable for a royal so I need to do my best. But I didn't use any make-up, I said if they take me, they take me as I am."

She continued: "I wasn't born with a silver spoon, I'm not blue blood, I will go as I am, and trust me with my God, I'll get this job. The nurse said she expected to see a "princely somebody, in those very expensive German, Swiss suits or something," but the Duke of Sussex was dressed down in a t-shirt and blue jeans, and His Royal Highness was also walking around the estate on his bare feet. "And I kept asking his PPO, so his protection officer, 'Do I curtsy, do I have to?' And he just looked at me and laughed and he said, 'You'll see, Prince Harry is amazing.'"

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle left Britain in early 2020.

"When I got there, the way he opened his arms 'Hello Lorren!' and gave me a hug. [I thought] 'Wow, what a gentleman, what a gem', oh my goodness, I couldn't believe it. And when I walked in and saw Meghan I thought 'My God, what a beautiful woman'. I just felt so comfortable, it wasn't as formal as I expected it to be, it was just a normal home,'" she concluded.

Flash-forward over 4.5 years and numerous scandals later, and this insight comes amid the Duke and Duchess of Sussex mired down in an endless feud with the British royal family.

"The whole kind of royal machine, if you like, is a team effort, and I just think it's very sad because Harry and Meghan had such potential," author Robert Hardman told an outlet.

"Harry writes in his book Spare how no one will return his calls and he can't get through to anyone, and it's just all about me, me, me," Hardman added. "And now, when we do tend to hear from them on a royal matter, it's just to say how miserable they were being royal."
