The ad that was put up in other royal residences for staff to work for the royal newlyweds was a mistake by an aide to Prince William. A top aide has admitted making a “boob” after advertising for staff for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s new home in London.
The ad, which was circulated last week, advertised for four servants, including a housekeeper and a dresser t work for the young couple at Kensington Palace.
However, Prince William’s private secretary, Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, says the adverts should never have gone out. He has admitted he made a mistake.
“I made a boob. We’re going to take it a little bit slower and see how things pan out. We will review the staff situation at the end of the year.”
That is the position that William had seemed to make clear regarding his staffing situation, as he is keen to portray himself as a modern Royal, who lives a relatively normal life. The Duke and Duchess still have their main home in Anglesey, where Prince William works as a search and rescue pilot.
William and Catherine are due to move into Kensington Palace in a matter of weeks. But the royals don’t consider it necessary to employ staff at their London home, at least for now.
