Could It Be You? Prince William & Kate Middleton Post Job Vacancy For New Housekeeper


The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have apparently posted a job listing as they search for a new housekeeper.

But hold on to your CVs - it's only an internal listing; one only open to those already working within Buckingham Palace, according to the Sunday Express.

It is specified that the lucky candidate will need "to provide a high standard of housekeeping for TRH [their royal highnesses] The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

"Main duties included: ensuring all areas of the residence are cleaned and maintained to a high standard at all times. Caring for and maintaining TRH ­personal clothing, cleaning silver- ware and glassware and in-house laundry.”

Personal clothing, eh? Could they be referring to the Royal Undies?

Though the successful applicant won't necessarily need to have had housekeeping experience, they must demonstrate a fierce "willingness to learn". On top of that, "attention to detail, together with a flexible and pro-active approach is essential.

"The candidate must also be able to demonstrate strong organisational skills, excellent verbal and written communication skills and the ability to work on their own, and as part of a multi-disciplined team."

And this, we suspect, is the most important bit: "Discretion, loyalty and reliability are ­paramount".

A royal insider tells the paper that the vacancy has already generated a lot of applicants.

"Obviously the prestige of working for the world’s most famous couple is an incentive," they said. "But it is unheard of for one person to be asked to perform so many duties. Clearly the Duke and Duchess are going to get their money’s worth out of whoever gets the job. About 15 people have already applied despite everyone wondering how anyone will be able to carry out all these duties in just 37 hours a week.

"The advert states that they’ll be required to work extra hours and you can bet your life they will. Most people employed as housekeepers expect to do a bit of cooking on the side, but walking dogs and driving too? And there’s also going to be a baby to factor into the equation. It’s unprecedented."

Any chance of a reality show following the process of whittling down the hopefuls? No?
