Cast your mind back to your New Year's resolutions (yeah, yeah, we've broken most of ours too...). Sure, some of them may have proven to be bogus, but if shaking up your career in 2013 was on the to-do list, then we just might have a solution for you. Or not.

The Duke and Duchess are on the hunt for a super-servant. An internal advertisement at Buckingham Palace is calling for someone: "To provide a high standard of housekeeping for TRH The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge." Now, be forewarned, if you didn't know that TRH means "their royal highnesses," then it might be best to give up the dream right now.
However, if being a royal super-skivving at the couple's new Kensington Palace digs is your bag, you'll be interested to know that the main duties include: "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." Oh, and you'll also be asked to walk the royal hounds.
“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,” the listing states. And they need to have a full driving license.
In the world of royal housekeeping, this gig is apparently a bit of an ask. “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, come July. It’s unprecedented,” a royal insider told the Sunday Express . We have to agree. While we somehow muddle through life without the aid of butler, housekeeper, and chauffeur, we recognise that the royal couple is a little more high maintenance. After all, maintaining K-Mid's wardrobe is surely a full-time job in itself. Just imagine how much of the new housekeeper's working day will be spent shining up L.K. Bennett shoes and darning nude hosiery? The mind boggles, really.
