James Upsher, who has worked for the Royal Household, has offered some top tips to help your application stand out from the crowd. He advises to be brief, he said: "Keep your language tight to the job description, answer the points they have asked for and add what makes you special - but don’t overdo it." But the golden rule according to James is to never utter the words, "I have always dreamed of working for the Royal Family." He adds: "Of course, you should have a line mentioning your great respect for the institution, but play this one very cool to stay out of the 'no' pile."
