Prince William and Kate Middleton AKA the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have advertised for servants for their new pad at Kensington Palace.
So much for their down to earth image!
But a Buckingham Palace source told the Mirror: “William and Kate might have wanted to have a simple life and do everything themselves but it’s just not possible.”
The newly wed couple who are currently based in Anglesey, where William works as RAF search and rescue pilot are planning to make William’s childhood home their London base.
Notices have reportedly been posted at Buckingham Palace advertising jobs as their housekeeper, butler, valet and dresser to help Kate and Wills manage official engagements in the capital.
“The whole place is buzzing with excitement,” the source continued. “Lots of people will want these prestigious jobs. The royals always like to promote existing staff rather than bring in people from outside.”
“This is a golden opportunity for someone to be in at the beginning of William and Kate’s working and domestic lives.”
The report said that Kate is keen to appoint a “dresser” – to help her maintain her position of style icon, no doubt – before she and William kick off their first official overseas trip to Canada at the end of June.
