According to the website Bustle, Buckingham Palace is hiring, and the job posting through The Royal Household calls for not one, but two assistants to be added to the payroll.

Successful candidates will work for the Private Secretary’s Office. One is a permanent position and one is a temporary position to fill a maternity leave.

You'll be doing things like coordinating meetings and appointments, making travel arrangements and managing correspondence. The successful candidate will provide support in the planning and execution of royal engagements.

The listing also says qualified candidates must have have extensive experience as an assistant and in diary management.
