The prestigious school has trained royal nannies, and is where Prince William and Kate Middleton decided to source a nanny to look after their children. Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo has been with the family since Prince George was a baby, and looks after him and his siblings Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis when William and Kate are undertaking royal engagements. Maria is incredibly proud of where she studied, and wears her Norland uniform with pride to royal events and special occasions when she is seen out with the Cambridge family.

Bo celebrated her 18th birthday at the beginning of November, and her milestone year was extra special for her mum. Bo was born with a congenital heart condition and had her first heart operation at just six days old. Ulrika posted a series of photographs of her daughter on Instagram to mark her big day, telling her daughter how proud she was of her, and how she never thought that they would be celebrating such a big birthday.
