It may just the best job in the world: Travel with the Duchess and Duke of Cambridge in style, and of course have face-to-face time with chubby-cheeked Prince George.

This year the family of three brought 11 people on their royal tour of New Zealand and Australia, according to Hello! Magazine, including Prince George's nanny Maria Borrallo and the mastermind behind Kate Middleton's gorgeous locks.

Travelling for three weeks can be exhausting for any couple, but imagine having dozens of public appearances, workshops and a baby along for the ride. The Royal family's staff on tour is fully funded by Prince Charles through the Duchy of Cornwall estate, along with Kate's official wardrobe, according to Pop Sugar.

And while some of these names may not be familiar to any but the most dedicated Royal watchers, Will and Kate's entourage have all been with the family for a long time. Working with not only the Duke and Duchess, many of these staff members have worked directly with Prince Harry, Prince Charles and the Queen.

Here are some of the most important faces who work behind the scenes for Will and Kate. Other key players not pictured below include press officers, a tour secretary and a logistics professional:

Fun fact: she even cut Will and Harry's hair when they were kids.

Relation to the Royals: Prince George's nanny
Quick bio: Maria Borrallo was hired as Prince George's official nanny in late March. Although little is known about this dark-haired woman from Spain, what we do know is 43-year-old Borrallo is the first foreign nanny chosen to take care of the future British monarch, and her parents are well-known socialites.

Who: Miguel Head
Relation to the Royals: Prince William's private secretary
