Prince William and Kate Middleton have given their children the best of the best when it comes to childcare.
Maria Borrallo, their nanny, trained at Norland College, a prestigious establishment in Bath.
One part of her training was learning to avoid saying one word specifically.
An expert on Norland, Louise Heren spoke to the Mirror Online about the one word she discovered that nannies must never say.
Louise said that Norland nannies are never to use the word "kids" when addressing the children, and must use the children's names at all times.
Louise says: “The word kid is banned. It's a mark of respect for the children as individuals.”
Maria was born in Madrid and trained at the famous college which has educated over 10,000 nannies since its creation in 1892, often for high profile families from film stars to royalty.
Louise said: “There will be no messing. 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.”
There is a strict routine that all the nannies must follow but that doesn't mean there is no fun.
Maria, as with all Norland nannies, wears a very formal brown uniform that comes with a bowler hat and white gloves.
However, getting outside in nature is all part of the Norland ethos, according to Louise.

"There will be lots and lots of outdoor play, that's the one thing you could say Norland are old-fashioned about. Loads of fresh air.
“Lots of bike rides, playing with their dogs, potentially some gardening. Norland are very into teaching children through play.
“Yes you are getting mucky with your hands in the soil but you are learning how to plant.
“If it is tipping it down, they will still go out. Wet weather is just inappropriate clothing, you have to put the right stuff on.
“It doesn’t have to be strict. Just because Norland Nannies wear the brown uniform, they look quite old-fashioned, that doesn’t mean their message is old-fashioned. It’s no-nonsense.”
