According to Us Weekly, Borrallo has been professionally trained, preparing her for a job such as this.
Borrallo was trained at London’s Norland College, an institution that specializes in childcare and nanny training.
Borrallo just recently began working with the Royal couple and their baby boy.
HELLO! magazine exclusively revealed in issue 1319 that William and Kate had hired a new nanny just before they went on holiday to the Maldives. The royal parents left behind their firstborn in the safe hands of Maria, and Kate’s grandmother Carole Middleton, to let the nanny and baby George bond while they were away.

In April, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are embarking on a tour of Australia and New Zealand, so Borrallo will be accompanying the family to help with Prince George. E! News reports that this tour will also be Prince George’s first official public appearance on duty as well. Though Prince George will be making a few appearances, he won’t be taking the spotlight much.
While preparing for the trip, Borrallo has already begun to take Prince George out on little adventures. Hello! magazine reports:
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.
The Royal family will be abroad from April 7, 2014 until April 25, 2014.
