The role entails the organisation of Princess Michael's diary, the wife of Prince Michael who is 47th in the line of succession to the British throne. The part time role requires 6 hours of work a day with flexible start and finish times. The exciting job also allows the lucky employee to work at Kensington Palace in a small team with a generous salary of £25,000.

The individual must coordinate detailed programmes for non-official/personal UK and overseas visits and liaise with Buckingham Palace where appropriate including arranging attendance at royal events. Aside from these requirements, there are some basic duties to be fulfilled, including ordering clothes, books and general items for the Prince,76, and Princess, 74. A few other mundane tasks include ordering household items, helping look after the pets and the up-keeping of annual lists for Christmas cards, presents and the annual summer drinks party.
