Prince William and wife Kate, Duchess of Cambridge hired Maria Borrallo in 2014, to help look after Prince George who was then eight months old. The nanny, who trained at the prestigious Norland College now also cares for Princess Charlotte, four, and Prince Louis, one. One author who spent a year training at the top childcare school, which has been producing nannies for the rich and famous since 1892, has told of the rules Ms Borrallo is likely to use on the Cambridge’s three children.
Author Louise Heren spent a year at the Norland College researching for a documentary and has revealed exactly what the students are taught.
Speaking to Mirror Online she revealed some of the techniques and tricks the nannies use to ensure children behave, which are likely to be used by Ms Borrallo.
The school teaches that once a child is old enough, it is important to let them help plan the day.
Giving them options to choose from, such as going to the park, baking a cake or reading, means a child is more likely to get on board with the activity.

Ms Heren said: “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.”
Nordic nannies are also encouraged to instil a meal time routine in royal babes, such as washing your hands 10 minutes before eating and helping to lay the table.
The childminders also use meal times as a key learning opportunity.
For example setting the table involves the child counting out the right amount of cutlery for each person and the tot can be quizzed on the colours of different foods.
