The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton are reportedly seeking for a new housekeeper to work for them at their home in Anmer Hall. It would be no simple task as the royal couple is looking for someone who are capable of doing house chores at a high standard.

The royal couple has placed an advert in the British magazine The Lady looking for an additional housekeeper for Anmer Hall, someone who is fit to work in a royal household. According to People, Kate Middleton and Prince William specifically asked for a “loyal” and “discreet” housekeeper with previous housekeeping experience and who is also preferably good with dogs.

A screenshot of the full advert is posted by The Telegraph, where it states the main functions of the desired housekeeper who will work with a “large family in Norfolk.” "Main duties will include cleaning of all areas of the house to a high standard; caring for and maintaining the home owners' clothing; cleaning silverware and glassware; purchasing groceries and general provisions for the house; and dealing with deliveries."

Occasionally, the new housekeeper will reportedly also be tasked to assist with dog care, prepare meals and also assist Kate Middleton and Prince William’s nanny Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo with taking care of Prince George and soon with the couple’s second baby. Kate Middleton is expected to give birth to her second child sometime in April.

According to the advert accommodation for the successful applicant will be provided by the royal couple and the new housekeeper is expected to work at Anmer Hall from Monday to Friday with occasional work on the weekends. Overtime hours may also be called when necessary, which per Telegraph could mean the housekeeper may be required to accompany the Duchess of Cambridge to her some of her royal engagements.

According to The Telegraph, the advert came after Kate Middleton and Prince William’s previous housekeeper resigned from her post last month. It’s believed Amy Wood, 34, unexpectedly resigned less than five months into her work. Wood used to work for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at their ten-bedroom home at Anmer Hall. People claimed the royal couple also has another housekeeper working for them at their Apartment 1A at Kensington Palace.
