The one word the royal nanny is banned from saying

The one word the royal nanny is banned from saying

Maria Borrallo has a very strong working relationship with the children she works with. After all, they just so happen to be Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

Doesn’t sound like a bad job, especially when you come to realise that she gets to live in Kensington Palace.

However, there is one word that the royal nanny is banned from saying.

Maria Borrallo has trained at the famous Norland College in Bath. This is one of the country’s top child training facilities available.

As a part of Borallo’s education and subsequent duties as a royal nanny, she must never utter the word ‘kids’.

According to a documentary maker who studied at the college that Borrallo attended, it’s meant as a “mark of respect towards the children as individuals”. The documentary maker, Louise Herren, studied the college intensely for a year.

"Given what we have seen of Catherine when she is out in public, she's very hands on,” Herren explained to The Mirror.

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

"I've spoken to nannies who have worked with other royal families and life is pretty normal.

"You get up, have breakfast, you go to school and you wear your school uniform whether you like it or not.

"It would be quite like the average British school children."

Although it might be difficult to imagine Princess Charlotte chucking a tantrum because she doesn’t want to wear her uniform, apparently it happens! 

Are you surprised by the word the royal nanny isn't allowed to use? Let us know in the comments.
