Ulrika Jonsson’s daughter has revealed a glimpse of her nanny training at the prestigious Norland College, where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s childminder learned her craft.

Bo Jonsson, 21, who splits her time between Oxfordshire and Bath, regularly takes to her Instagram account to share snippets of her schooling – including photos of her in the traditional beige uniform.

The third-year student also showcases to her 2,852 followers the various assessments she must complete – including sewing, cooking various meals such as fresh pasta and roasts, as well as placements caring for children as young as five weeks.

Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo who looks after Prince William and Kate’s three young children, George, Charlotte and Louis, is also a graduate of the prestigious Bath nanny school.

Bo, who was born with a congenital heart defect and continues to be treated for the condition today, has held an ambition to work in childcare from a young age.

She delights her followers with images of her completed assessments, including one of a ‘fabric friend’ she created from up-cycled materials and embroidery.

Sharing a snap of the cat-like cushion, Bo wrote: ‘I really enjoyed making this and challenging my sewing skills.’

Elsewhere, the student posts photos from her placements, where she cares for children, helping them with homeschooling and arts and crafts. 

She also completed a course in Makaton during her second year, a language that uses signs and symbols to help people to communicate, and shared a picture of her posing with her certificate.

The institution’s students are known for their distinctive uniforms and are schooled in all aspects of looking after youngsters during their three-year degree course.

The training costs £36,000 in total and includes martial arts training and stunt driving to its curriculum to cater for modern clients – many of whom are celebrities and the super-rich.

Tae Kwon-Do is believed to be the martial art of choice – which has been specially adapted to include how to dodge a potential kidnapper with a pram.

Nannies are also trained in how to deal with paparazzi and are taken to Castle Combe Racing Circuit in Wiltshire to perfect their driving skills and learn how to drive at high speed in any weather condition.

Driving away from pursuing photographers being the main reason for the training.

Ulrika’s daughter Bo was born in 2000, during her relationship with German hotel manager Marcus Kempen, who left when their baby daughter was days old. 

The former weather presenter is also mother to son Cameron, 26, with John Turnbull, daughter Martha, 17, with Lance Gerrard-Wright and son Malcolm, with ex Brian Monet. 

Ulrika has often been open about daughter Bo’s heart condition and in April last year revealed that Bo – who has a congenital heart defect – was rushed to hospital.

Bo has been in and out of hospital over the years as a result of her condition – she was born with double inlet left ventricle defect, a congenital defect that affects the valves and chambers of the heart.

As a baby, she had to undergo life-saving surgery on her heart – but Ulrika did not reveal what had caused Bo to be hospitalised.

The previous month Ulrika hailed Bo as a ‘warrior’ as she went to get a health check up.

The TV presenter shared a series of snaps to her Instagram Stories of Bo lying down at the doctor’s office as she received a liver scan.

The former Celebrity Big Brother star posted a photo of the pair sat together in the waiting room as she called Bo her ‘CHD Warrior’.
