The Queen Is Looking For A Cleaner For Windsor Castle, If You Fancy It
If you've always fancied living in a castle but lack the necessary cash flow, then a new job listing from Windsor Castle might be right up your street.
The new listing promises that the lucky person who lands the role will attend parties with the royal family... as a cleaner.
OK, so you won't get to live like an actual member of royalty but, still, how many people do you know that can say they've dusted the Queen's knick-knacks?
The post for a Daily Cleaner is currently listed on the royal household's official website and states the successful candidate will be responsible for cleaning and maintaining a 'wide range of interiors and items'.
Given that Windsor Palace has more than 1,000 rooms, it's fair to say you'll have plenty to do and be kept pretty busy.
You'll need to have 'previous housekeeping experience and a sharp eye for detail', because I think we can assume Liz and Phil have quite high standards when it comes to the cleanliness of their gaff.
But it's not all palace cleaning, the job role will also require the new employee to support the hospitality team during functions and events.

The post goes on to say that whoever gets the gig should 'use your enthusiasm and passion to deliver the exceptional'.
For your efforts, you'll be paid £14,742 ($18,925) a year working 30 hours a week from Monday to Sunday, because dust never sleeps. If you fancy yourself as the Queen's new cleaner, you can apply until 24 November.
The royal household recently advertised a job for Liveried Helper, to help take care of the Queen's beloved horses at Buckingham Palace.
As well as earning £22,400 ($28,757) a year - plus benefits, including 33 days holiday - the role also included lodgings within Buckingham Palace and all meals.
As well as exercising and training the horses, the Liveried Helper would also be responsible for making sure they are primed and ready to take part in 'ceremonial activities', as well as looking after the stables, cleaning saddles and harnesses, and making sure the Royals Mews area (where the horses live) is kept in tip-top condition.
