The new recruit will work closely with the Private Secretaries Office, the in-house Communications and Visits & Events teams and the general Correspondence team at Buckingham Palace. They will also be expected to liaise with external organisations, local authorities, government and charities.

While the Correspondence Specialist will mainly work at Buckingham Palace, the job description explains that the hired team member will also need to travel to other royal residences within the UK to fulfil the requirements of the role.

The Household is looking for an "enthusiastic, self-motivated and proactive" individual who possesses "strong administrative and organisational skills". 

The job opening, which was first posted earlier this month, comes amid Kate's ongoing treatment for cancer.

In a recent update ahead of her appearance at Trooping the Colour, Kate said that while she hopes to join "a few" public engagements over the summer, she is "not out of the woods yet" and will undergo treatment for a "few more months".

 "I am making good progress, but as anyone going through chemotherapy will know, there are good days and bad days," the mum-of-three said in a statement.  "On those bad days you feel weak, tired and you have to give in to your body resting. But on the good days, when you feel stronger, you want to make the most of feeling well."

The 42-year-old continued: "My treatment is ongoing and will be for a few more months. On the days I feel well enough, it is a joy to engage with school life, spend personal time on the things that give me energy and positivity, as well as starting to do a little work from home."
