> The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are hiring a new housekeeper to assist at Kensington Palace, where they live with Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

Kate Middleton and Prince William have listed an advert for a new Housekeeper at their home in London, Kensington Palace.

The post was shared on the official royal family vacancies website, under ‘The Household of TRH The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’.

It reads: “We wish to appoint an experienced person to assist in Royal residences.

You will support the management of all housekeeping operations and pro-actively deputise for the Senior Housekeeper, being accountable in their absence.”

It continues to outline the ideal candidate for the role, including someone with “an organised approach” who takes pride in what they do.

They should also “be able to manage a varied workload, show initiative, be content to work flexibly, including being able to travel.”

Of course, the successful applicant will also be required to maintain “confidentiality” and exercise “discretion” at all times.

The couple occupy Apartment 1A at the palace, along with their three children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, and despite what the name ‘apartment’ suggests, it is a mammoth property that will require a lot of work.

In total, the home is spread across four storeys, with 20 rooms including five reception rooms, three main bedrooms, dressing rooms, a night and day nursery and staff quarters.

The interiors and furniture also demand meticulous care. In a past episode of True Royalty TV’s Royal Beat, expert Richard Kay explained that “it is pretty grand inside”, while official photographs have revealed various regal features including ornate gold photo frames and arm chairs, and pristine white sofas dressed in plush velvet cushions.

Though not explicitly stated, it is likely that the successful interviewee will join the couple’s long-term housekeeper Antonella Fresolone, who was previously honored for her personal service to the family. She joined the household in May 2013, just two months before William and Kate welcomed their first child, Prince George.
