PRINCE WILLIAM and Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, are known to be hands-on parents with their three royal children. But the pair also employ a “no-nonsense” nanny to help them look after the Cambridge brood.
Maria Borrallo trained at the prestigious Norland College, which prides itself on its excellent reputation for nanny training.
The college was established in 1892, and has trained thousands of nanny’s, some of which have worked for royal families across the world.
Ms Borrallo was hired to look after Prince George when he was just eight months old.

Since then, the Cambridge’s have welcomed two more babies to their royal brood.
But with Maria on-hand, the couple has extra support during royal tours and engagements.
Norland expert Louise Heren, and author of Nanny in a Book, told Fabulous Online the Cambridge children have a “no nonsense” upbringing with Ms Borrallo.
Louise said: “There will be no messing.

“That’s because Maria will be aware that as they step off planes, holding mum’s hands, smiling and waving to the crowds, there can’t be any crying or terrible twos or tantrums.”
She added: “It doesn’t have to be strict. Just because Norland Nannies wear the brown uniform, they look quite old-fashioned, that doesn’t mean their message is old-fashioned. It’s no nonsense.”
Ms Borrallo is sometimes pictured in the background during royal events, wearing the distinct Norland brown uniform and hat.
And under Ms Borrallo’s watch, screen time may be limited for the Cambridge children, and the exact times for playing on electronic devices will be decided by the children’s parents.
Instead, the children are encouraged to keep busy with jigsaws and educational games.
The trying of new foods may also be promoted, and fussy eating is likely not to be tolerated.
And when it comes to high-profile royal events, Ms Borrallo will be on hand to make sure the children are well looked after.
Louise explained: “She’ll say: ‘This is your opportunity to show Mummy and Daddy just how wonderful you are, and you are to smile and be really good for them and then we can go inside and play.’”

She added: “Maria will know their schedule.
“She will be doing a lot of explaining to them, what is happening.
“If the children have travelled on royal engagements, it will be jolly difficult getting the kids to bed because of the excitement and the timetable of events.
“When you see William and Kate go off to a function and the children aren’t with them, they will be having naptime.”
