Royal couple publish ad for ‘super’ servant

Prince William and his wife Kate have advertised for a super servant expected to be a jack of all trades as the royal couple prepare to become parents for the first time.

An internal advertisement at Buckingham Palace calls for someone: "To provide a high standard of housekeeping for TRH (Their Royal Highnesses) The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge".

The main duties included: "Ensuring all areas of the residence are cleaned and maintained to a high standard at all times. Caring for and maintaining personal clothing, cleaning silverware and glassware and in-house laundry."

The all-singing, all-dancing­servant will also be ready to run errands, prepare basic meals when required and care for and exercise dogs, the Daily Express reported. A current valid UK driving licence is "essential".

A royal insider said the advertisement has already attracted a great deal of interest: "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 royal insider said.

"The advert states that they'll be required to work extra hours. 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," the source added.
