Kate Middleton and Prince William move family to modest four-bed and forgo live-in nanny


KATE MIDDLETON and Prince William are set to move their young family to a modest four-bed property and give up their live-in nanny for the first time.

Living in a more rural environment, the children will have the freedom to play outside, walk the dog and even ride horses away from the eyes of the media and the public.

The modest four-bedroom cottage will mean that the family’s live-in nanny will no longer be able to stay with the family, meaning that there will be a big dynamic for the Cambridge family dynamic.

Adelaide Cottage is a Grade II-listed property which was constructed in 1831 for Queen Adelaide who was the wife of William IV.

Maria Borrallo, the Spanish Norland nanny is usually on hand 24/7 for Prince George, nine, Princess Charlotte, seven and Prince Louis, four.

Ms Borrallo will continue to be a full-time nanny for the Cambridges but will instead live close-by.

It is thought that the family will also be forgoing other live-in staff such as a housekeeper and a personal chef which they have become accustomed to at Kensington.

Ms Borrallo became a nanny for the royal couple in 2014 when Prince George was eight months old.

Norland nannies are trained for four years including in a bachelor’s degree in early childhood education.

Nannies also received the Norland diploma and a 12-month probationary posting.

Those wishing to become a prestigious Norland nanny must pay a tuition fee of £14,990 for the 2022/23 year.

The Cambridge’s nanny will sometimes travel with the family on their holidays and even has her own apartment at Anmer Hall, the Duke and Duchess’ residence in Norfolk.

The move to Windsor will see the royals move closer to Kate’s parents, Michael and Carole Middleton and a mere 10-minute walk to the Queen’s private apartments at Windsor Castle.

It has also allowed the Duke and Duchess to enrol Prince George into a co-educational Berkshire prep school.
