Prince William and Kate have chosen a nanny trained at the prestigious Norland College to look after their son, Prince George, Kensington Palace has announced.
The couple are said to be "happy and delighted".
Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo, originally from Spain, decided to join their royal household a few weeks ago.
Norland College has been producing nannies for the rich and famous since 1892, and its students are known for their distinctive uniforms. They are schooled in all aspects of childcare during their three-year degree course and separate Norland diploma.
The Cambridges met Ms Turrion Borrallo before she was appointed, and a Kensington Palace spokesman said yesterday that the couple were "happy and delighted that she has come on board".
Ms Turrion Borrallo is a full-time replacement for William's former nanny Jessie Webb (71), who had looked after George as and when the couple needed her.
