Parents-to-be Prince William and Kate Middleton, a.k.a. the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, are seeking a housekeeper for their home in Kensington Palace.
The royal couple advertised for the position once before, soon after they were married in 2011, but decided not to move forward because they didn’t need the help at that time.
Obviously things change with pregnancy, and this appears to be one of them. They’re also moving into a slightly larger home at Kensington’s Apartment 1A, formerly the home of Princess Margaret and currently undergoing a lavish renovation.
Apparently there are 15 applicants to work for Will and Kate so far for the gig, according to the U.K.’s Sunday Express. Duties include: “Ensuring all areas of the residence are cleaned and maintained to a high standard at all times. Caring for and maintaining TRH [their royal highnesses] personal clothing, cleaning silverware and glassware and in-house laundry.”
Interested parties must also be “ready to run errands, prepare basic meals when required and care for and exercise dogs.” The Express quotes a “royal insider” who snarkily points out that it’s “unheard of for one person to be asked to perform so many duties.”
