This is the greatest news we’ve heard since Queen Elizabeth II was hiring a social media star.
The former Kate Middleton will soon be on the hunt for a new secretary to replace her longtime personal aide, Rebecca Deacon. The highest member of the duchess’ team announced that she would be leaving the palace this summer after a decade as the royal’s right-hand woman. (Side note: Could you imagine saying the phrase “leaving the palace” when putting in your two weeks’ notice? Oh, to dream.)
In a statement to People, Kensington Palace said, “After a decade of service to The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, Rebecca Deacon will be stepping down as Private Secretary to The Duchess of Cambridge. She plans to leave the household in the summer.”
It’s unclear if Kensington Palace will post the job opening on its website, as the royal household has done in the past, or if the search will remain private. Either way, keep your eyes peeled on the monarchy’s job site for your chance to work with royalty.
And perhaps binge-watch “The Crown” on Netflix for, you know, research.
