The Cambridges’ children are being prepared for state dinners and not turning their noses up at anything they don’t fancy by eating different foods from around the world, said an expert on nannying.
Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis appear in public they are usually impeccably behaved and this is thanks to the way they are brought up to know when to smile on ceremony, reportedly said Louise Heren, author of “Nanny in a Book”.
The Cambridge children are regularly seen standing next to their parents, beautifully turned-out and waving at crowds.
There maybe the occasional royal temper tantrum but the children are usually on their best behaviour,
While Prince William and Kate Middleton have been hands-on parents, the family does have a ‘secret weapon’, reports MyLondon.
Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo has been the nanny to Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis since each of them were small, having started working for the family when George was eight months old in 2014.
The Spaniard, from the city of Palencia, received her formal training at the prestigious Norland College, in Bath.
The college website reads: “Norland offers world-class training to those aspiring to be the very best professional childcare practitioners.”
Louise Heren told The Sun that the nanny will have drilled into the kids how to behave in public.
“There will be no messing,” Ms Heren said.
“That’s because Maria will be aware that as they step off planes, holding mum’s hands, smiling and waving to the crowds, there can’t be any crying or terrible twos or tantrums.”
Ms Heren also explained that picky eaters will not be tolerated.
The children are expected to try everything that is put in front of them, this is because they will have to sample a variety of foods at official events when they are older.
The older children, George and Charlotte, attend Thomas’ School in Battersea, while little Louis still goes to Willcocks Nursery school, just a stone’s throw from the family’s home in Kensington Palace.
Playtime outside of the classroom will be filled with educational activities and games which will mostly take place outside.
Ms Heren said: “There will be lots and lots of outdoor play… Lots of bike rides, playing with their dogs, potentially some gardening…Yes, you are getting mucky with your hands in the soil, but you are learning how to plant.”
This will be especially pleasing to their mother. Kate designed a garden for the Chelsea Flower Show in 2019 and her desire for William to become more green-fingered was recently revealed when he claimed his wife was going to buy him one of garden expert Monty Don’s books.
The children are even educated in the art of public outings and events, as well as being taught to be alert and smiling when speaking with anyone.
“[Maria will] say: ‘This is your opportunity to show Mummy and Daddy just how wonderful you are, and you are to smile and be really good for them and then we can go inside and play … Maria will know their schedule. She will be doing a lot of explaining to them what is happening,” Ms Heren said.
