DO you want to work at the palace? Kate Middleton and Prince William are on the lookout for someone to manage their “complex royal diaries”.
The Kensington Palace position has been advertised following the split of royal households and charity foundation of the Sussexes and the Cambridges.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are looking for someone to handle the “seamless delivery of multiple complex diaries”, and must “maintain confidentiality and exercise discretion at all times”.
No salary is mentioned for the diary coordinator, but the role will be based at the palace and hopefuls must apply by July 22 to be in the running.
The advert continues: “The role will be responsible for managing the seamless delivery of multiple complex diaries to ensure the smooth and effective co-ordination of engagements and events.”
It’s no doubt a busy time for the royal couple, following breaking up of the Royal Foundation with Prince Harry and Meghan.
It was revealed in May that the Fab Four were to be going their separate ways, with the Sussexes leaving the couples’ joint charity.
And it comes after Harry and Meghan broke away from Kate and William’s household at Kensington Palace to establish their own.
They also moved to Windsor instead of moving into the apartment next door to the Cambridges, as revealed by the Sun last year.
A royal source said: “Things did get very bad between the brothers and they didn’t see each other privately for a number of months after the royal wedding.
“Certainly the animosity over status, money and Meghan meant that the split in their joint households had to be brought forward much more quickly than anticipated, so perhaps it was inevitable that their joint charity has to be split too.”
JOB VACANCY FOR A ROYAL DIARY COORDINATOR

The successful candidate will have a proven ability to manage complex diaries and will have excellent communication skills.
You must also be a team player, be proactive and flexible, have advanced IT skills, and maintain confidentiality at all times.

And the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are now taking one of the Royal Foundation’s most distinguished aides with them when they leave.
Natalie Campbell, still listed on the Royal Foundation’s website as the Director of Insight and Innovation, is jumping ship after reportedly forming a close bond with Meghan, 37, after promoting the cookbook for survivors of the Grenfell fire.
It's been claimed Meghan and Prince Harry’s new venture will be called The Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, which was reportedly trademarked a day after the split was confirmed.
Announcing the split, the Royal Foundation said: “Later this year The Royal Foundation will become the principal charitable and philanthropic vehicle for The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will establish their own new charitable foundation with transitional operating support from The Royal Foundation.
“These changes are designed to best complement the work and responsibilities of Their Royal Highnesses as they prepare for their future roles, and to better align their charitable activity with their new households.”
