There has been a lot of buzz in the press about this. Prince William Kate Middleton’s upcoming move from London to Windsor, but it looks like a new city won’t be the only change the family has to get used to: for the first time in their lives, their children won’t have a live-in nanny.
Big Changes For William And Middleton’s Family
The Duke and Duchess will be moving from Kensington Palace, where they live, to Adelaide Cottage in Windsor. Their new home is close to the queen’s primary residence at Windsor Castle.
The couple’s children—Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis—will be changing schools, but that isn’t the only big change in their lives. Maria Borrallo will be the last nanny for the kids.

Borrallo won’t be leaving the family, though; just their home. The nanny will be living in her own home, instead of sharing a room with the royal family. Borrallo isn’t the only staff member William and Middleton are bringing to Windsor; a handful of support staff will follow the family to their new home, including a housekeeper and a chef.
This is a significant change for the royals. Borrallo has been a part of the royal family since George was 8 months. He’s now 9 years old. She looked after Louis, 7 year old, and Charlotte, 7 year old. She is often seen with her Norland College uniform, corralling children. Norland College is a British school that teaches childcare. Celebrities and members of the royal family love Norland nannies.
Royal Couple ‘Wants To Give Their Kids As Normal A Start As Possible’
William and Middleton are well-known for their hands on parenting, even though they have a full time nanny. The royal couple often brings their children to royal engagements. They try to provide a normal home environment for their children.
Middleton was shared by a royal source “wants to emulate her upbringing, living in the countryside with a close-knit family. She desperately wants that normality for her own kids.”This could be why Windsor moved to Windsor, according to some.
“They know what’s coming [as they near the throne] and want to give their kids as normal a start as possible,” Another royal insider spoke. From a new home to moving their nanny out of the house, it looks like William and Middleton are shaking their kids’ lives up!
