Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, 38, and Prince William, 38, are searching for a new housekeeper to take care of their Kensington Palace apartment. The royal couple and their three children Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, five, and Prince Louis, two, are based at the London pad during term time as George and Charlotte’s school Thomas’s, Battersea is a short drive away.
The Cambridges are currently on the hunt for a new member of staff to help maintain their London home and according to the job advertisement, there is an important code of conduct successful applicants must stick to.
The housekeeper role was advertised on the Royal Household’s official website with applications closing on November 7.
The job description described the role as an “exciting opportunity” and laid out the necessary requirements.
According to Fabulous Magazine, these included a strict no-gossiping rule.

The job description stated applicants must be good at “maintaining confidentiality and exercising discretion”.
As Kate and William often relocate to Anmer Hall in Norfolk during the school holidays, the new member of staff must be willing to travel.
The application stated applicants must be able to “manage a varied workload, show initiative, be content to work flexibly, including being able to travel”.
The advertisement added: “You will be keen to take on new challenges as these arise.”
Current COVID-19 restrictions mean Kate may have had to get creative about how to keep her children entertained this half-term.
In an interview ahead of Easter earlier this year, the Duchess revealed the kind of activities she gets up to with the children at home.
Kate told BBC Breakfast: “The children have got such stamina I don’t know how.
“Honestly, you get to the end of the day and you write down the list of all the things that you’ve done in that day. So you pitch a tent take the tent down again, cook, bake.
“You get to the end of the day – they have had a lovely time – but it is amazing how much you can cram into one day that’s for sure.”
