Want to Work for the Royals? Apply to Be the Keeper of the Queen’s Stamps


It’s every person’s dream to have an amazing job working for the royals. Although you’d expect to have to come from a long line of nobility or possess pure blood to even be allowed inside the palace walls, you can actually apply for most royal jobs via their job listings page. In the past, the family has hired positions that ranged from being Kate Middleton‘s lady-in-waiting to being an intern to Prince Harry. Really!

Although the jobs sound like a dream come true, there might not be a guarantee that you’ll be hanging out with Prince William and Kate. “The chances of seeing the queen are zero to none,” Marc van der Linden, publisher of Royalty Magazine, said. “Buckingham Palace is a working palace; none of the royal family members live there.” That’s right. William and Kate live at Kensington Palace and the Queen mostly resides at Winsford Palace. And the jobs don’t exactly pay that well either, but having “royal dishwasher” still looks pretty good on a resume. Beyond housekeepers and butlers, the noble family also hires other positions that are a little quirky. Check out the gallery below to see the strangest jobs you can get working for the royals.
