Prince George’s nanny and the elite ‘James Bond’ roster

Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s nanny reportedly earns a small fortune from her job caring for the royal offspring.

Although Prince William and Kate Middleton are a couple of working parents, they benefit from the services of a live-in nanny with elite skills, including driving getaways.

Maria Teresa Turrion from Spain has worked with the family since 2014 and trained at the prestigious Norland College in Bath.

The institution is widely recognized as one of the best in the world, with graduates like Turrion often landing successful, high-paying jobs working for celebrities and royals.

The college’s website reads, “Norland provides world-class training for those who aspire to become top child care professionals.”

Turrion’s course is said to cost £15,000 and the college takes just 100 pupils a year.

The subjects taught at the school have been described as a mix between “Mary Poppins and James Bond”, with students learning everything from self-defense, martial arts and getaway driving.

Students graduate after four years and reports say newly qualified nannies can earn up to £42,000 for a non-residential role, with some earning up to £120,000 after a few years of experience.

The attractive salary would include perks such as designer handbags, luxurious accommodation and overseas travel to coincide with the demanding job of babysitting high-profile children, GloucestershireLive reported.

Dr Janet Rose, Principal of the college, said: “Among many traits, nannies at Norland must be loving, kind, honest, creative, practical, responsible, organized and willing to learn and continually improve in order to do their best for the families and young children they work with.

“We are not looking for in-depth knowledge of babies and young children because we are going to teach them that.

“Instead, we seek what we cannot teach – an absolute commitment to being the person who changes the world by shaping the lives of the children they work with.”
