Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis are the latest in a long line of young royals to have the benefit of a nanny.
While their parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, are known to be very hands-on when it comes to their children, it’s sensible for the couple to take on extra help which can alleviate the pressures that come with their hectic work schedules.
The couple have had the same nanny for just under eight years.

Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo has been the nanny to the Cambridge children since each of them were small, having started working for the family when Prince George was eight months old in 2014.

The Spanish native heralds from the city of Palencia and received her formal training at the prestigious Norland College, located in Bath.
The college website reads: “Norland offers world-class training to those aspiring to be the very best professional childcare practitioners.”
Alongside her prestigious training, Ms Borrallo would have also learnt several rules which she has no doubt carried with her into her job with the Royal Family.
One of these rules is that the word “kids” is banned because it is deemed disrespectful.
Author of ‘Nanny in a Book’, Louise Heren spoke to the Mirror about the year she spent at the college researching a documentary.
Heren said: “The word kid is banned. It’s a mark of respect for the children as individuals.”

Even though they are three of the most famous children in the world, Heren believes George, Charlotte and Louis lead normal lives at home.
She said: “Given what we have seen of Catherine when she is out in public, she’s very hands on.
“I imagine her relationship with Maria is very close and they collaborate greatly on the care of the children.
“I’ve spoken to nannies who have worked with other royal families and life is pretty normal.
“You get up, have breakfast, you go to school and you wear your school uniform whether you like it or not.
“It would be quite like the average British school child.”
Maria has worked for the Cambridge family since 2014
The Duchess of Cambridge previously opened up about the ‘Mum guilt’ she feels when she has to work and doesn’t get to spend as much time with her children as she would like.
Speaking to best-selling author Giovanna Fletcher on her podcast, ‘Happy Mum, Happy Baby’, the Duchess was asked if she felt ‘mum guilt’ and said: “Yes absolutely – and anyone who doesn’t as a mother is actually lying.”
