Queen Elizabeth advertising for chauffeur

By Bang

Britain's Queen Elizabeth is advertising for a new chauffeur who will receive between £23,000 and £24,000 a year as well as a 33-day holiday package, including Bank holidays.
The 88-year-old monarch is offering between £23,000 and £24,000 a year for the live-in position, which includes meals, and the successful candidate will have to work over five days between Mondays and Sundays.

The job advertisement, which has been posted on the official website of the British Monarchy, states: "As chauffeur you will work as part of a busy and supportive team tasked with driving members of the Royal Family, Household officials, guests and official visitors.

"You will ensure the vehicles are well maintained and kept to a high standard of presentation, whilst assisting with the daily administration and management of the Royal Mews Garage. With the opportunity to develop your skills, you will play an integral part in the smooth daily running of the Royal Household."

Those wishing to apply for the position will need to ensure they have a full UK driving licence, preferably with no endorsements, and must have professional driving experience.

What's more, the suitable candidate will need "effective organisational and administrative skills", be able to meet high standards and have "excellent communication skills".

The advert also promises to provide workers with "a unique and stimulating work environment" as well as a 33-day holiday package, including Bank holidays.
Royal nanny
Britain's Prince William and Duchess Catherine are not expected to advertise for a nanny when their second child is born, it has been reported.
The royal couple - who have 17-month-old son Prince George - are said to be keen to bond with their newborn, who is due in April, on their own so are reportedly not going to look to employ an extra pair of hands when the little one is born.

A royal source told HELLO! magazine: "As new parents, the duke and duchess wish to enjoy being with their new baby and all that this entails.

"There are no plans to advertise for a nanny or a maternity nurse."

Catherine's mother Carole Middleton is expected to lend a hand when the couple's new baby is born, just as she did in the first few weeks following George's birth.

The Duchess of Cambridge attended numerous royal engagements this week, including a visit to the Emma Bridgewater pottery factory in Stoke, central England, and she also spoke to mothers who struggle with serious illness while bringing up their children during a visit to charity Action for Children.

William, 32, and Catherine, 33, announced last September that they were to become parents for a second time, and he later admitted that, while the duchess was experiencing similar severe morning sickness as she did while pregnant with George, the pair were "thrilled" with the news.

He said: "It's been a tricky few days - week or so - but obviously we're basically thrilled, it's great news, and early days."
