    Kate Middleton and Prince William can afford the very best – so it’s no surprise that they’ve recruited a top-notch nanny to join their household staff.

    It was reported earlier this month that the royal couple had brought on a new Spanish nanny to help care for their 8-month-old son, Prince George. But not now more details about the new caregiver have been released.

    A Kensington Palace spokesman said: ‘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.

    ‘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.’

    The nanny’s full name is Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo, and she trained at at the prestigious Norland College in Bath, which is known for training the best child caregivers.

    The three-year course costs £36,000 and trains nannies in several areas, including self defence, martial arts, defensive driving skills and how to deal with paparazzi.

    Maria was said to have arrived in early March, giving her enough time to become familiar with the royal family before their royal tour next month.

    She has replaced 71-year-old Jessie Webb, who was reportedly helping the couple out immediately following Prince George’s birth. The veteran nanny had served the royal family for decades, starting as William and Harry’s nanny when they were boys.

    Judging by new nanny Maria’s reputation, Kate and Wills have chosen a reliable employee. Sources say she’s a total professional who’s ‘married to the job.’
