What's meant by"betrayed the fact that they were “local”"? The service was conducted by two maids in brown uniform and Mrs. Driffield in the midst of her fluent conversation kept a wary eye on them. I wondered how she had managed to train these buxom Kentish girls (their healthy colour and high cheek bones betrayed the fact that they were “local”) to such a pitch of efficiency.

Because of the physical characteristics of the girls, the author could 'tell' that these girls were local (in that they had the same characteristics of other girls in the area).

The girls looked were trying to look like they came from another area, but they still had physical similarities to the local folk.
