Are you as organised as Monica Geller? Do you pride yourself on being tidier than Marie Kondo? There's a job going at Kate Middleton and Prince William's home, Kensington Palace, and you might be perfect for it.

An advert for a housekeeper has popped up on The Royal Family website, looking for someone to assist at their royal residence of Kensington Palace. The successful applicant must be able to 'manage a varied workload, show initiative, be content to work flexibly, including being able to travel'.

Could you even imagine? Wonder if the role includes organising singing lessons for Charlotte or tidying George's toys.

The position is described as an exciting opportunity for a potential candidate to join a supportive, positive and collaborative team. You must be a self-starter, have an organised approach and take pride in your work. The description reads:

"We wish to appoint an experienced person to assist in Royal residences. You will support the management of all housekeeping operations and pro-actively deputise for the Senior Housekeeper, being accountable in their absence.

"This is an exciting opportunity to join a supportive and positive team. You will be a self-starter who also enjoys working collaboratively. You will be keen to take on new challenges as these arise and develop your own knowledge and skills."

Unsurprisingly, the job role also asks for confidentiality and discretion at all times.

Speaking on True Royalty’s Royal Beat, British royal author Christopher Warwick revealed lots of details about the Royal home. "It has 20 rooms from the basement to the attic, it's not a small house," he said. "Kensington Palace is built around three courtyards. If you think of them as being these wonderful red brick terrace houses, because they are all joined, but separate houses."

We'd settle in quite nicely, tbh.
