It’s not surprising that the Queen does not have to make her own cup of tea.
That task is taken care of by a royal butler, a position in the Master of the Household’s Department, which “handles everything involved in the official and private entertaining across all the Royal residences.”
Royal butlers spend their days roaming the extravagant hallways of Buckingham Palace and other royal residences, but they’re not exactly living a life of luxury.
Another trainee royal butler job description from April 2018 listed the roles hours as “45 hours per week, 5 days out of 7, Monday to Sunday”.
According to the description, butlers will become all-round hospitality experts and are responsible for the care of guests from welcome to goodbye, delivering functions on all scales and back-of-house preparation.
While it’s clear that a hospitality role at the palace is not going to automatically earn you the big bucks, there are some perks.
