iStockphoto/Thinkstock(LONDON) — Imagine rubbing elbows with Kate Middleton and Prince William, roaming the streets of London and pulling into Buckingham Palace at the end of each work day.

Well, that fantasy could be a reality because the royal family, including the Queen, Princes Charles, William and Harry, and Duchess Kate, are in search of a new chauffeur.

An ad on the monarchy’s website said that the royal family was in need of a chauffeur to be responsible for driving around members of the family, guests, household officials and official guests. The chauffeur would also be responsible for assisting with vehicle maintenance, daily administration and managing the Royal Mews Garage.

The gig would pay £23,000, or $36,000, and require a full, clean United Kingdom driver’s license. Candidates must have the ability to work with a small team, have good administrative skills including experience with email, have “clear communication skills with an ability to deploy tact and diplomacy when necessary,” and be motivated and committed to maintaining high standards. Professional driving experience is a plus, but not a necessity.

If you’re chomping at the bit to hang out at Buckingham Palace, you better jump on it fast. An ad for a house manager, which paid $78,000, was posted in June but quickly filled. The deadline for this coveted position is Aug. 31.
