Prince George’s Spanish nanny has a name: Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo.
Maria went to Norland College, the prestigious nanny training college whose nannies are so coveted by celebs and royals (for the full Norland College advertisement, see the links below). Maria is a full-time nanny, she started a few weeks ago, and she will be accompanying Will, Kate and George to Oz and NZ. Maria will be living at Kensington Palace. She supposedly doesn’t have a husband, boyfriend or children and is “married to the job”.
Maria is said to be in her mid-30s with two decades experience working for high-society families. Yeah, homegirl is not in her mid-30s, mid-40s is more like it. If she were mid-30s with two decades experience she would have had to start working in her teens. So no way is she mid-30s. But sure reporters, don’t do the math on that at all and go ahead and call her mid-30s.
There has been a bit of controversy over Maria’s hiring. Mainly the fact that she is Spanish and not British. Some people think the Cambridges should have hired a British nanny, and some people think the people who care are morons. And then of course there are the people who don’t give a sh-t, lol. I think they should have hired a British nanny. My reason is: the British Royal’s main purpose, and the ONLY argument for keeping them around, is that they promote Britain and British industry. Given that fact, they should have given the job to a Brit.
PS. Grumpy George. Had to link it because they showed it in one of the articles and I think George’s grumpy face is amazing.
