Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s nanny is BANNED from using this word

The one word the Royal nanny must not use

Content Editor / February 05 2019

Nanny Maria Borrallo has been with the Royal family for many years, caring for Prince William and Kate Middleton’s children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

Maria lives at Kensington Palace with the Royal family and helps out on Royal tours and holidays.

She studied at Norland College in Bath, and according to author Louise Heren, she is banned from calling the children ‘kids’ – as per the college’s strict rules.

“The word kid is banned. It’s a mark of respect for children as individuals,” Louise told Mirror Online.

Instead, the little royals must be called by their names, or “children.”

Despite their Royal heritage, Louise adds, however, that she believes the children live quite normal lives.

“Given what we have seen of Catherine when she is out in public, she’s very hands on,” she said.

“I imagine her relationship with Maria is very close and they collaborate greatly on the care of their children.

“I’ve spoken to nannies who have worked with other royal families and life is pretty normal.”

They do, however, have a relatively strict routine, Louise adds, which includes being in bed at 7pm sharp every night and playing outside every day, whatever the weather.
