20 MARCH 2014Prince George's new nanny has been named as Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo, Kensington Palace has revealed.
The new nanny, who started with Prince William and Kate Middleton earlier this month, will travel with the royal family to Australia and New Zealand on their upcoming tour. Maria, who is in her mid-30s, will be tasked with looking after seven-month-old Prince George.
Maria has no doubt been getting to know George's routine and habits. The pair were recently spotted enjoying a stroll in Hyde Park, accompanied by a personal protection officer and more policemen patrolling the grounds.
Prince William's childhood nanny, 71-year-old Jessie Webb, came out of retirement especially to look after George after his July birth. Jessie is said to have been showing Maria the ropes.
As George will be a mere eight-months-old when he makes his first official trip overseas, the young tot will not be making many public appearances but may take the spotlight on a few occasions.
"One or two engagements across the three weeks have been identified as times when the Duke and Duchess might take Prince George along, too," William's private secretary Miguel Head told a press briefing.
The royal family will be abroad from Monday 7 April to Friday 25 April.
