Kate Middleton, Duchess Of Cambridge Can Relax! Prince George’s New Nanny Is ‘Trained In Martial Arts’
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have confirmed the new nanny they have hired to look after their son Prince George as Spanish national Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo, and it sounds like Ms Borrallo is more than qualified for the very important job!
A statement from Kensington Palace this week confirmed the appointment, with the royal couple said to be “delighted” about the new addition to their family.
“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,” a spokesperson said.
“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 the MailOnline, Maria trained at Norland College in Bath and has been working for the couple for several weeks already. It’s believed the appointment was made in good time for the upcoming royal tour of Australia and New Zealand.
Explaining Maria’s role during the tour, the spokesperson went on: “When they’re out and about she will be looking after Prince George as she’s been doing for the last couple of weeks.”
Ms Borrallo’s Norland training means she has a pretty impressive CV, with the college reportedly schooling their trainees in skills such as Taekwondo.

Taekwondo is the “martial art of choice” during the three-year, £36,000 course, the Daily Mail report with the skills coming in handy so nannys can “dodge a potential kidnapper with a pram.”
Dealing with paps is also dealt with in another recent addition to the course, with trainees whisked away to the Castle Combe Racing Circuit in Wiltshire to perfect their driving. The nannies are trained to drive at high speed in every possible weather condition so they can get away safely with their VIP charges if paps are giving chase.
Sounds like Kate and Wills have chosen the perfect nanny for their little prince.
