Royal Nannies is a leading Governess agency offering services of British, bilingual as well as native English speaking governesses and private tutors.

A British governess is a female employee of a family who teaches children within their home. In contrast to a nanny, nurse or a babysitter, she concentrates on teaching children, not their physical needs. Governess is in charge of school age children, not babies.

British governesses and Native English speaking governesses are highly demanded within large and wealthy households, places like Saudi Arabia (Saudi royal families), UAE, Russia - Moscow, Paris, Geneva and others, where parents prefer to educate their children privately at home rather than send them away to boarding school.
We’re specialists in providing British governess services for our overseas clients as well as Bilingual tutors (French, Spanish, German, Italian, Russian & Mandarin) for families living abroad. Only the best ones are recruited and supplied for overseas positions.



  • One of the main governess duties is teaching and educating children in a private household paying attention to their social development (as well as tutoring English ond other subjects)
  • Governess will be employed to work 5 or 6 days per week and may work alongside a nanny or mothers’ help. She will normally care for school aged children between the ages of 3 to 16 years.
  • A Qualified British Governess will have a teaching background or have higher childcare education and a minimum of 5 years professional childcare or teaching experience.
  • A Bilingual Governess is often asked to teach children a second language (French, Spanish, Italian, Russian, etc).
  • A Governess may also teach a musical instrument.



  • Salaries depend on experience and start from £800 per week net.
  • On avarage the salaries can be anywhere between £800- £1500pw
