Kate Middleton & Prince William Place Ad For Housekeeper, So What Does It Take To Work For The Royal Couple?

If you're in need of a job and you live relatively near the eastern England county of Norfolk, good news: There's at least one job opportunity that would not only be amazing, but also a big, big job. According to People, Kate Middleton and Prince William placed an ad in a local upmarket magazine called The Lady looking for a "discreet" housekeeper to assist them at their country home in the area. In other words, if you're qualified, there's totally the possibility you could be working for royalty at this time next month.

It's a big opportunity, obviously, so there are some big qualifications that the perfect candidate must possess to become housekeeper to the royals: According to the ad, the couple is seeking:

Housekeeper sought for a large family home in Norfolk. We are looking for someone with previous housekeeping experience, ideally within a large private house, and preferably within a family environment with dogs.

Sounds good so far! The ad goes on to explain that duties will include everything from "caring for and maintaining the home owners' clothing," to "purchasing groceries and general provisions for the house."

So what does it take to nab such a huge job like this one? Based off the ad, the perfect candidate must...

Be Discreet

If you can keep a secret better than the kids in I Know What You Did Last Summer, you're golden.

Be Good With Kids

This is not an ideal example.

Have a Flexible Schedule & Be Professional

I know a new episode of How to Get Away With Murder is on, but work comes first.

Be Good With Pets

But like, let's be real, how could you NOT be?


This shouldn't be too difficult, considering Will and Kate seem like the coolest bosses ever.

Able to Drive

Sorry, Cher.
