Kate and Williams new cottage move means no live-in nanny for first time ever

Kate Middleton and Prince William's move to a cottage on the Windsor estate will mean they won't have a live-in nanny for the first time ever.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their kids Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis are reportedly set to move from their home in Kensington, London, to Adelaide Cottage this summer to be closer to the Queen.

The move will mean George, nine, Charlotte, seven, and Louis, four, will not have a live-in nanny for the first time in their lives, according to The Telegraph.

Their current nanny, Maria Borrallo, as well as the other staff who currently live with the family (including a housekeeper and a chef) will move elsewhere as the Cambridges downsize.

Spanish supernanny Ms Borrallo was hired by Kate and William when George was just eight months old.

She studied at the prestigious Norland College where nannies go through four years of training. This includes a degree in early childhood education, a 12-month probationary posting and the Norland diploma.

According to their website, the salary of a Norland nanny can range from £42,000 to north of £70,000 per year.

Ms Borrallo has been an integral part of the Cambridge children's childhood. She has her own apartment at the family’s Anmer Hall property at Sandringham and has been seen travelling with them on holiday.

As such, Kate and William will be keeping her on full time. She just won't be living with them on a permanent basis.

Kate and William's new Grade II-listed home is just a short walk from St George's Chapel and Windsor Castle in Berkshire.

The move to be nearer the Queen comes after the monarch's recent health issues.

Speaking to The Sun about the move, one royal source said: "Kate and William were very keen for a modest home to start their new lives in Windsor.

"Adelaide Cottage fits the bill because it is a four-bedroom home and they do not need any more as they have no live-in staff.

"They had no other demands than a pleasant family home close to schools and the Queen.

"They were adamant they didn't want anything too showy or anything that needed renovating or extra security so as not to be a burden on the taxpayer."
