If you've ever wondered what it might be like to work for members of the royal family, now could be your chance.
The Household of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have revealed they're in search of a Diary Coordinator after advertising the available position on the royal website.
Based at Kensington Palace, with no salary listed, the role is responsible for "managing the seamless delivery of multiple complex diaries to ensure the smooth and effective coordination of engagements and events," the advertisement states.
Think you have what it takes? The post explains the successful candidate will have a proven ability to manage complex diaries and will be a team player with excellent communication skills.
Unsurprisingly, the ability to maintain confidentiality and exercise discretion at all times is "paramount".

The advertisement comes just months after the royal Cambridge household underwent quite a significant change, with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex breaking away from Kensington Palace, to form their own royal court.
The move came two months before Harry and Meghan welcomed their first child Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, and fell in line with their move out of their Kensington Palace cottage, to their more secluded home Frogmore Cottage at Windsor Castle.
In late June, the Sussexes made another break away from what had been dubbed the 'Fab Four', by also splitting from the two couples' joint charity The Royal Foundation.
Founded by the royal brothers in 2009, the announcement of the split sparked speculation that the move was down to tension between the brothers, however royal expert Duncan Larcombe told The Sun that the move was a natural one, as Harry and William both have their own families now and will take very different roles in the royal family in the future.
"Harry is going to forge his own path with Meghan," Duncan told the news outlet.
"He's now a full-time working royal with his wife, he wants autonomy as to what he does, how he does it and how she does it, which is a definite change to how it was 12 years ago."

Princess Diana's close friend and former butler Paul Burrell also commented on the rumoured feud between the brothers telling Yahoo's Royal Box: "I think for a long time Harry has looked at his brother and envied him and thought, 'I'd like some of that, I'd like a nice family around me.'
"And now he has it, so it's a beginning of the future for Harry."
Adding: "I don't think anything will ever split these boys. I think their mother's death cemented them together forever.
"Until their mother's death, they were individual boys, now I think they are very close. Of course Harry always wanted a family, now he has one, there's every reason to think the two families will come together."

And come together they have, with the entire Cambridge and Sussex clan making their first joint public appearance together on Wednesday at a charity polo match at Billingbear Polo Club in Berkshire.
The appearance marked the first time two-month-old Archie has been seen with his Cambridge cousins Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 4, and Prince Louis, 1, and what an adorable appearance it was.

Duchess Meghan was seen lovingly cradling the young royal, while his two eldest cousins let loose on the field nearby, kicking around a football.
Meanwhile cheeky Louis stole his mum's sunglasses and proceeded to adorably stick out his tongue at his younger cousin!
Safe to say we cannot wait to see more adorable interactions between the four royal cousins when Archie is old enough to run around too!

The charity polo event saw Princes William and Harry play head-to-head for the Khun Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha Memorial Polo Trophy, with the aim to raise awareness and funds for fifteen of the charities the royal brothers support.
The event raised an impressive £1 million (NZD $2.4 million) for charities, which include African Parks, The Invictus Games Foundation, The Royal Marsden, The English Schools Swimming Association and The Passage.
