William and Kate Middleton decided to hire Maria Borrallo to care for their three children — a job for which Borrallo is perfectly suited. She attended Norland College, which has become known as the Mary Poppins school because, as royal commentator Victoria Murphy told ABC News, “the nannies are so perfect.” Perfect may be an understatement.
“The nannies are taught everything from defensive driving to security issues to how to care for a future king or queen. So she just really knows everything that you could possibly need to know about bringing up a child,” the commentator revealed. This comprehensive training lasts for a total of three years.
The nannies also wear the very same uniform since the college opened back in 1892. But don’t let the old-fashioned uniforms throw you, these ladies know Taekwondo and will use it if need be. Most importantly, though, Borrallo and other Norland nannies follow the school’s motto “love never faileth” and strive to be caring and compassionate caregivers.
