If you have "previous housekeeping experience"—ideally involving "a large private house" and "a family environment with dogs"—and you can be discreet and loyal, have we got the job for you. Prince William and wife Kate recently put out an ad in The Lady ("an upmarket magazine for 'elegant women with elegant minds,'" People helpfully reports) looking for a housekeeper for their country home. The ad notes that main duties include cleaning the entire home "to a high standard," maintaining the owners' clothing, grocery shopping, accepting deliveries, and sometimes helping with meal prep, child care, and dog care.

"Discretion and loyalty is paramount and a current valid UK driving license is essential," it reads, noting that weekend hours may occasionally be required. "Self-contained accommodation will be provided (suitable for a couple). The partner may be offered ad hoc maintenance work, although there is no guaranteed work provided for them." To apply, you'll need to submit a "full CV" and "covering letter with your salary expectations" by April 5. (Kate reportedly wants William to get a hair transplant.)
