'Spanish supernanny' hired by Duke and Duchess to look after Prince George will never smack the youngster thanks to her elite training | Mail Online
22 March 2014

'Spanish supernanny' hired by Duke and Duchess to look after Prince George will never smack the youngster thanks to her elite training
  • Nanny Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo was trained at Norland College in Bath
  • Training costs around £36,000 and includes martial arts and stunt driving
  • She will be joining the royal couple on tour of Australia and New Zealand
Prince George will never be smacked by his new ‘Spanish supernanny’ because her training forbids it, an expert has revealed.
New parents William and Kate are said to be 'delighted' that full-time nanny Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo has joined their royal household.
But, it has been revealed the 43-year-old nanny would never smack a young child because her training at Norland College in Bath forbids it. The elite childcare training institute teaches its students that ‘a child is never naughty’ and would strike off any graduate who used physical punishment, according to writer Louise Heren.

Ms Heren spent a year making a TV documentary about Norland College and told the Daily Express: ‘They will never ever smack. They will be struck off if they do. A child is never naughty but the behaviour is.’ The institution's students are known for their distinctive uniforms and are schooled in all aspects of looking after youngsters during their three-year degree course.

Well, there's always positive reinforcement; you praise the good behavior, but ignore (if applicable) the inappropriate one. Time-outs are not always the best way to go, because some kids prefer to be excused from what they're doing, to go and sit off, in a corner by themselves, which means they will act out even more. Personally, I'm glad that the nanny will not be able to use physical means such as smacking, or spanking to discipline George. They're not a good way to instill much of anything, except the concept that violence gets others to do what you want.

Whatever discipline method Nannies and parents use for the rest of the current crop of royal bub's is working very well and you know they are not getting 'smacked' so hopefully Marie Theresa's will be akin to that.

this sub article of the daily mail called "TEAM KATE AT WORK AND PLAY: THE 'EYES AND EARS' OF THE PRINCESS" cites the names of her several aides and staff:

Kate’s trusted private secretary, Rebecca Deacon, 30, who is dating William’s press secretary Nick Loughran,
personal assistant Natasha Archer, 27, who helps with Kate’s wardrobe
fellow St Andrews history of art graduate Sophie Agnew, 27, who helps her keep on top of personal admin;
hairdresser Amanda Cook Tucker, 51.

"Kate, who insists the girls call her by her first name, gossiped and joked with her team over a glass of red wine while watching rugby in Sydney."

Born 1986 (- Person Page 42374) He is Captain Florian Graham-Watson.
He just got engaged (announced May 31 https://groups.google.com/forum/#!to...ws/xduFNulU-J0) to a Dr. CM Campbell who is from Rockport Maine! Congrats to both of them.
Rockport was home to the former Andre the Seal who is the star of both a book and a movie. It's a drop dead gorgeous little town.

I honestly don't think the Cambridge's would be adding to their staff or looking for a temp equerry if they weren't preparing to take on more official duties.

During each royal engagement we see dozens of photos of Kate arriving, meeting officials, attending receptions and departing events. Those who look a little more closely, beyond Kate's dazzling smile and much talked about sartorial choices will notice another brunette just a few feet away.
Rebecca Deacon has become Her Royal Highness's most trusted and relied upon aide since the royal wedding.

Jason Knauf, an American who has also worked as a senior media adviser to the New Zealand government, will join the Royal Household in the New Year.

He replaces Ed Perkins, who left the royal trio earlier this year, to take a role within public relations consultancy.

Mr Knauf, 30 has been appointed in his new job just in time to plan the arrangements for outside the Lindo Wing at London's St Mary's Hospital, when Kate has her second child, due in April

So they hired a guy who has experience with public relations desasters where it became obvious that people got a lot of money, partly from the taxpayer, for doing only very little or nothing.

Or they hired a guy who was tired of dealing with money related scandals and wanted a simpler job. Because, lets face it, the Cambridges are known for being fairly dull - let alone what the press decides to invent about the cost of hair care.

Personally I hope this guy has a good sense of humor and can pull over a good one on the press come April 1st. Maybe hint that the baby will be born at X hospital in Scotland and then wait till the maddening crowd rushes there to set up and claim their spots before yelling "April Fool!".

Ok, maybe not. I wish him well with his new job.

Staff at the US Basketball game. These guys do have icewater in their veins! How do you not react to an exploding Mutombo? Rebecca seems amused, The photo says so much about the life of a staffer, I think.

Rebecca got some of Kate's popcorn later on in the game. No word if she shared with Miguel 😃
