Queen needs staff to fill up her bath!

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

JOB­SEEK­ERS are be­ing of­fered the chance to run the Queen a BATH.

For £14,200-a-year, the Royal House­hold wants a house­keep­ing as­sis­tant to put Her Majesty’s plug in and check the water’s tem­per­a­ture.

As well as fill­ing the Royal tub, the new em­ployee must pack and un­pack suit­cases for the Wind­sors, iron their clothes and help them get dressed.

They will also look af­ter jew­ellery and ar­range for tea and break­fast trays to be taken to the fam­ily mem­bers’ rooms.

The job, ad­ver­tised on the Royal House­hold web­site, asks for a can­di­date “com­mit­ted to achiev­ing ex­cep­tional stan­dards of ser­vice pro­vi­sion”.

Although based at Buck­ing­ham Palace, the new re­cruit will also work at other Royal res­i­dences such as Bal­moral and San­dring­ham.

In 2003, there was outrage when it was re­vealed that Prince Charles had a favourite ser­vant who squeezed the tooth­paste tube for him be­fore he cleaned his teeth.
