The position? Senior Communications Officer for the trio’s Royal Foundation.

FEATURED STORIES

According to the brief job description, the role entails delivering news to the media, crafting a communication strategy and giving press briefings (no pressure, you’re only representing high-profile royalty).

Applicants’ backgrounds should fall within marketing, media or public relations. Plus points if you’ve worked “within the charity sector.”

It also supports existing charities by investing in them or lending their extensive influence. One of their well-known philanthropic work is Heads Together, where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry put mental health on centerstage by sharing their own experiences.

Prior to this job posting, Duchess Catherine, better known as Kate Middleton, hired her new private secretary through the palace’s website. The website is updated with vacancies for other households as well.  /ra
