The Royal Family are joined by an entourage of staff members both in and out of their royal residences, with everything from personal assistants to nannies in for the count. With three young children and a host of royal duties to fulfil, it’s no wonder the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have a full-time nanny to care for the royal heirs – but how will Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis’s nanny spend Christmas day?
Who is Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis’ nanny?
Maria Teresa Marrion Borrallo is just one of many royal nanny’s tasked with looking after the children of Kate, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William.
As a full-time nanny to three of the future King’s children, Maria has her hands full working day-in, day-out for the Cambridge’s.
The nanny was recruited by the royal couple when Prince George was just eight months old.
Having attended the well-known nanny school, Norland College, the Spanish born nanny has found success in her role as royal staff – she has even been branded ‘most successful alumni’ by fellow associates of Norland College which can be found in Bath.

How will the royal nanny spend Christmas?
As a full time nanny to the Cambridge’s, Maria is expected to be spending Christmas day with the Royal Family.
While it has not been publicly confirmed, Maria’s attendance at the Royal Family’s most important events suggests she will be on hand over the festive period.
The Royal Family are expected to flock to one of the Queen’s many estates, Sandringham House, to spend the Christmas holidays in the quiet Norfolk village.
As the Royal Family prepare to spend their first Christmas without Prince Phillip, it may be that there are more Royal staff on hand than ever to commemorate the sad event.
When has Maria been spotted with the family?
Maria’s first public appearance with the Cambridge’s was back in 2014 when she was first hired by the family.
Ms Borallo joined the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge as well as baby George as the family embarked on a tour of Australia and New Zealand.
In previous years, the Royal nanny has been spotted in the car with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince George and Princess Charlotte as they left the Queen’s Christmas lunch.
As a close figure to Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, Ms Borallo almost always attends events held for the children.

In 2015, Ms Borallo was seen talking to the Queen and various other members of the Royal Family at Princess Charlotte’s christening.
As a helping hand and close friend to the Cambridge’s, she has also been known to assist the young children who were part of Pippa Middleton’s wedding ceremony to James Matthews.
Ms Borallo was also on hand to help the young bridesmaids and pageboys at the weddings of the Duke of Duchess of Sussex, as well as Princess Eugenie and James Brooksbank.
Is the role of a Royal nanny important?
As the nanny to three of the future heirs to the throne, caring for the youngest members of the British monarch is a highly valued job.
After years of rigorous training at Norland College, Ms Borallo’s work is crucial to both the children of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, as well as the parents themselves.
Former royal nannies have been able to offer their views as well as make suggestions on parenting and proper care for the youngest members of the Royal Family.
Royal nannies are highly respected and the role is one of high prestige, which makes it unsurprising to think of Ms Borrallo spending Christmas in the company of the Royal Family.
