Prince George's new nanny Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo has some pretty impressive skills under her belt. Pun intended because yes, she reportedly knows Taekwondo.

The Spanish-born babysitter, who was revealed on Thursday as the little royal's new caretaker, has quite the résumé thanks to her training at the prestigious Norland College.

What exactly do students learn at the college in Bath so they can have all of the necessary tricks to care for famous children? Or the third in line to the throne?

Per The Daily Mail, Taekwondo is the "martial art of choice" during the three-year course and students learn how to "dodge a potential kidnapped with a pram."

Another important lesson is how to dodge the paparazzi in your vehicles. Groups are whisked away to the Castle Combe Racing Circuit in Wiltshire to perfect their driving techniques, at any speed or type of weather condition.

So, Maria could quite possibly navigate a track to perfection or be a stunt driver, if she so desires.

The course reportedly costs 36,000 pounds.

Maria is a full-time nanny and will be accompanying Kate Middleton and Prince William and their son on their upcoming tour of New Zealand and Australia.

According to the Palace, she only started working with the royal family recently and would like to remain as private as possible considering that she is now a member of the royal household.

"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 in a statement.
