Tips used by royal nanny to control George, Louis and Charlotte

An author who spent a year researching at the college where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's nanny of choice trained has revealed the types of tips and skills students are taught there. 

Maria Borrallo, who was hired by Kate Middleton and Prince William, both 37,  to help look after Prince George, six, when he was eight-months-old, now cares for Princess Charlotte, four, and Prince Louis, one, too.

The 'Spanish supernanny' trained at the prestigious Norland College which has been producing childminders for the rich and famous since 1892.

Now, Louise Heren, author of Nanny in a Book, has told of the rules she is likely to have learned - including spotting signs of tantrums before they unfold and why they must never use the word 'kids.' 

'I've spoken to nannies who have worked with other royal families and life is pretty normal,' Louise explained, speaking to Mirror Online.

'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 children.'

INCLUDE THE CHILDREN 

When the children reach a certain age, Norland Nannies encourage them to play a part in organising each day.

If they're allowed an option to pick what's on the agenda, they're more likely to get on board with the activity.  

'It means that the nanny has got some control but the child has chosen what to do and is happy that they got the choice,' Louise told the publication.

GIVE A RUN DOWN OF THE DAY AHEAD BEFORE STEPPING OUT  

Unlike day-to-day nannies, Maria has the added pressure of raising a future king and preparing the children for royal outings. 

Louise believes the Duchess of Cambridge helps to prepare the young royals ahead of any tours or events by giving them a breakdown of the day and what they can expect.

This includes anyone they may encounter and how they should respond with their actions - such as waving back.  

Louise added: 'Her job is to keep them happy, safe and well but equally they need to be presentable and well behaved when they are on parade.'
