Prince George, shown here with his parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, heads to New Zealand and Australia next month with his parents and a new nanny.

Kensington Palace released details Thursday about the nanny hired to look after Prince George.

Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo was hired recently as a full-time nanny and will be accompanying the royal infant when he travels next month to New Zealand and Australia with his parents, Prince William and Duchess Kate.

Borrallo was trained at Norland College, an institution known for its rigorous training of nannies and child care workers, a palace spokesman said in a statement that provided few other facts.

“We will not be giving further details on Maria or her employment, except to say that The Duke and Duchess are of course delighted she has chosen to join them,” the palace said.

The trip Down Under will last from April 7-25 and will include Prince George's first public presentation since his christening last October. The palace has previously said that Will and Kate decided to bring George with them because of the trip's length.

George is expected to make an appearance with Will and Kate at an April 7 event in Wellington, New Zealand, for nurses who provide assistance for new parents and babies. He may also attend an event in Australia.
