“I struggle to understand why you have been taken from us so soon.”

Underneath the videos, she continued: “All I can hold onto in my heart are the many amazing memories with you Nanny and this one has to be one of my favourites that I will cherish forever.

“Here you are in the Maldives just two days before my wedding, singing your favourite song, only you could capture a crowd like this my precious Nanny Wendy.”

In the video, Nanny Wendy can be seen performing the Patsy Cline classic Crazy.

‘I will love you forever and ever’

“I am so grateful I had you in my life for 31 years,” Billie continued.

“You have been the most encouraging, loving, funniest, one of a kind, special nanny that we could ever wish for.”
