Top news coming in today is about jobs, especially one job in particular - in Buckingham Palace.

Part of the duties include running the royal bath water.

But don't apply unless you can keep quiet.

According to, the job ad advises that the person will be focused on "high-quality cleaning" and the taking care of bathrooms and bedrooms.

Moreover the candidate will be in charge of guests and "arranging dry cleaning, care of jewelry, running baths, assisting with dressing if required, and arranging the service of tea and breakfast trays."

Think you qualify for the royal job? You have to be able to hold your tongue and, as AFP says, the person must be happy to "maintain confidentiality." They don't want you writing books afterwards.

It's a 40-hour-a-week job but travel is involved - to "a number of Royal residences in the UK." The pay is $23,800 a year, but it will possibly go up and "there will be a salary adjustment" for included housing and food, says the ad.
