(Newser) – If you have a valid British driving license, professional driving experience, and the "ability to remain calm under pressure," Queen Elizabeth II might have a job for you, according to a listing spotted by Royal Central. The palace is seeking a chauffeur for the queen, other royals, and their guests in a position that comes with a salary of $37,000 and 33 days of vacation time. The chauffeur's duties will include planning routes and cleaning and maintaining the royal fleet of vehicles, reports People, which notes that this is a real job and "not a high-concept pitch for Adam Sandler's latest film." (A previous chauffeur was fired for giving unauthorized tours of Buckingham Palace.)
