About This Quiz

Being a nanny or babysitter is a very common job and many people choose to have them, but being a nanny to a royal family is a completely different thing, with an entirely new set of rules and standards.

Royal children are the heirs to the thrones of their countries and in many cases, they will become the heads of state. The people who are charged with raising these children, along with their parents, are their nannies. These men and women typically have a high level of education (often in child care), experience with caring for children (usually multiple), can speak a few foreign languages and possess other special skills 

These nannies typically live with the families, somewhere on the property, and can be called upon at any time of the day to assist in the rearing of the children. They often accompany the children to school and on outings as well as on vacations with the family.

Do you have what it takes to be a royal nanny? Will we be hearing that you were the one who raised a monarch sometime in the future? To find out if you are fit for the job of raising a royal, then this is the quiz that you need to take!
