The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall are hiring a Senior Communications Officer to join their busy team at St James’ Palace.

Just last month Buckingham Palace revealed they were seeking a Communication Officer, thought to be for the Queen, and it seems as though Charles, 70, and Camilla, 72, are following in the monarch’s footsteps. 

The advert doesn’t specify a salary, but states that applicants must have strong media and marketing experience, and the ability to handle ‘sensitive information with tact and discretion’.

‘The successful candidate will lead on communications plans for Their Royal Highnesses’ engagements in the U.K. and assist with overseas visits.
