The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s new Spanish nanny has been named as as Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo.
The nanny, a thirty-something-year-old from Spain who has been described as ‘married to the job’, was been hired to help the couple look after Prince George.
She started working for the family a few weeks ago and helped look after George with Kate’s mother Carole Middleton while William and Kate took a Maldives break.
Royal couple William and Kate are said to be ‘delighted’ that the full-time nanny has decided to join their household.
As previously reported in Euro Weekly News, the new employee, who is believed to have worked with other high-profile families in the past, will be joining the family on their forthcoming tour of Australia and New Zealand.
The nanny will have been specially trained in self defence as well as how to ‘skid pan’ a car in poor weather conditions.
A Kensington Palace spokesperson said: “Maria is a full-time nanny, who started work with us recently, and will be accompanying the Duke and Duchess and Prince George to New Zealand and Australia.
“We will not be giving further details on Maria or her employment, except to say that the Duke and Duchess are of course delighted she has chosen to join them.”
According to sources Ms Borrallo trained at the prestigious Norland College, an institution that has been producing childminders for the rich and famous since 1892.
The school is renowned for training students in all aspects of looking after youngsters during their course.
The three-year degree course costs £36,000 in total. The Bath college recently added martial arts training and stunt driving to its curriculum. These are so the nannies can successfully deal with pesky paparazzi and potential threats such as kidnappers.
These new courses are designed to cater for modern clients – many of whom are celebrities and the super-rich.
