Kate Middleton's New Nanny for Prince George Has a Mouthful of a Name

Kate Middleton Prince William Prince George

Well, it looks like a little bit of the suspense surrounding Prince George's new nanny has finally gone away, as a rep for the Palace has just released her name.

Kate Middleton and Prince William hired Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo to care for their royal little cherub, and the two of them are said to be "delighted she has chosen to join them."

Of course, now that we know this woman's name, we're dying to hear any more details on her background, how the Duke and Duchess selected her over other candidates, etc.

(I mean, seriously -- you gotta be pretty amazeballs to land this gig.)

Alas, the rep said, "We will not be giving further details on Maria or her employment, except to say that the Duke and Duchess are of course delighted she has chosen to join them."

And they want her privacy and the privacy of her family and friends respected and all that jazz too. (Go figure.)

The rep did tell Us Weekly that Maria will be heading Down Under with the fam to care for Georgie-Porgie during the Royal Tour, and divulged that she was trained at London's Norland College, a school that specializes in all things nanny.

But other than that? It sounds like the royals have no intention of spilling the beans on any other juicy details about Maria. (Bummer.)

Maybe we'll get lucky and at least see a pic or two of her while she's in New Zealand and Australia though. (One can hope.)

Do you think it sounds like Kate and Prince William made a good choice?

SUSPENSE ?  The real suspense is what George looks like now. His idiot parents are too snotty , even towards their own UK citizens, to release new photos. Such a bizarre, stand-offish attitude. It can't help public relations that's for sure. I don't think they care though- and they are OK leaving George behind for an entire week while they left the country without him.  I know they care about THEMSELVES a lot.  That they do care about...not much else though.

I'm a parent - no way and no how would I have left my babies that long. I can see going out to lunch or some shopping while a grandparent watches a baby,  but go away for a week ?  It's still stunning, awful news that they actually did that willingly. SCARY.

Ah, but has Prince George had his full vaccination shots to 8 months yet? And does the nanny comply with NSW childcare health regulations, I wonder? At least the nanny's credentials seem ok. They explain why it isn't okay to simply take Grandma along to mind the baby, I guess.

it would be a good idea if grandma came, but not if that grandma is CAROLE, that woman is a shrewd shameless golddigger who plotted with her daughter lazy kate to get william, and they stalked and schemed, look how they have been cashing in, its been said she wanted to go to Aus for some business connections
