THE QUEEN is advertising for a new footman for less than the princely sum of £303.48 a week.
And while the successful applicant may get to live in the palace, that’s where the high life will end.
The £15,781-a-year job at Buckingham Palace includes accommodation and all meals. The new flunkey will be expected to work some weekends and travel to other royal homes such as Balmoral and Sandringham.
You won’t make a mint at this game!
The job ad promises: “This exciting role, encompassing the best of the hospitality industry, will see you and your team travelling around the UK to public and private residencies.”
Meanwhile some staff at Windsor Castle have voted for industrial action over unpaid “extra duties”.
