As Prince George made his bow on the first day of the visit to New Zealand, the new person in his life was quietly watching from the sidelines.

With her hair being blown in the chilly wind of the harbor-side airport, nanny Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo, 43, took in the scene along with about 100 members of the world's media.

Borrallo had left the royal family's jet slightly ahead of the smiling and waving Prince William, slightly ahead of the smiling and waving Kate and George, and was positioned, with Kate's right-hand woman Rebecca Deacon, towards the tail of the plane to see the welcome.

She then followed the couple and their entourage into the terminal building a short walk away. Her first job on foreign soil for the couple would come only half an hour later when she looked after the little prince while his parents were given a Maori welcome at Government House.

Borrallo lives with the family at Apartment 1a, Kensington Palace, and, although she is from Spain, has lived in the U.K. for about 20 years.

Said to be "totally dedicated to the family" she's working with, she is from a well-to-do family in Spain, and trained at the famous Norland College.

Since joining the family in March she has been spotted pushing the family's Silver Cross pram in neighboring Kensington Gardens.

The couple were said by a palace spokesman to be "delighted she has chosen to join them."
