PRINCE Harry and Meghan Markle have reportedly advertised on LinkedIn for a communications assistant to work out of Buckingham Palace.

The position, which was posted nine days ago, will report to the royal household, and begins in April.

The job, which is offered as a 12-month fixed contract, involves a range of marketing, public relations and writing duties such as producing social media updates, writing press announcements and feature articles for royal media platforms, according to the LinkedIn post.

While the exceptional employment opportunity is described as "entry level," it offers a unique experience and environment for the lucky candidate who will join a "fast-paced and dynamic team".

If you are lucky enough to join the team you will "provide invaluable support to The Queen and Royal Family, enabling them to fulfil their duties and serve the nation" - all from the "magnificent and historic surroundings" of Buckingham Palace.

The successful applicant will cover Palace engagements including ceremonial events and garden parties, and provide support as required for off-site royal events.

"Although based primarily at Buckingham Palace, you'll also travel in the UK or overseas to support important visits and engagements," states the job listing.

Applicants with squeaky-clean reputations need only apply, since the ad states: "The reaction to our work is always high-profile, and so reputation and impact will be at the forefront of all that you do."

You'll also need to know how to generate and handle exposure.

"Whether covering a state visit, award ceremony or Royal engagement, you'll make sure our communications consistently spark interest and reach a range of audiences," says the listing.

All this in return for "a comprehensive benefits package" including 33 days of leave a year and a pension scheme.

Plus Meghan and Harry even pledge their support for your "continued professional development."
