The 44-year-old from northern Spain has been working with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge for more than a year and she was very much part of their special moment introducing Princess Charlotte to the world last weekend.

Maria is said to have purchased Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana's white knitted bonnet and booties from a Spanish boutique called Irulea, where she purchased the baby items in cash.

The clothing store is located in San Sebastian and Maria's mother is said to have contacted the store and paid for the item in cash in order to keep the purchase under wraps.

The adorable newborn was also wrapped up in a white shawl by G.H. Hurt & Son.

And while the growing family may have added a new member, they won't be hiring another nanny, with Kate instead asking her mother Carole Middleton for help.

She and husband Michael are said to have moved into the couple's Amner Hall home in Norfolk, where they will spend the next number of weeks helping the family adjust.

"George was aware that he would soon have a new brother or sister and has been excited throughout the pregnancy.

“He might have been a little shy around the new baby, but I heard everything went well. He’s great around other children. He’s a very curious boy."

"The Palace was inundated by flowers and gifts from around the world, many from members of the public and others from important figures and officials they have met over the years.
