Queen looking for footmen

Like most other employers, The Queen finds it difficult to find good employees.  At the moment she is advertising for new footmen.

Despite the low pay rate, the job comes with the perk of one of the most famous addresses in the world. 

You will work in the most magnificent State Apartments in the world, the setting for some of the great pageantry of British life.  You’ll serve at the some of these magnificent events including State Banquets, part of the regular State Visits held at Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle.  You will be capable of standing for very long periods of time.  At these great events footmen spend a lot of time standing and very little time sitting down.

After a period of time you may even serve the royal family themselves.  The Queen’s Private Apartments at Buckingham Palace have attractive gilded ceilings, but if you have the chance to visit her Private Apartments at Windsor Castle, you’ll be privileged enough to see what is probably the most magnificent suite of Private Apartments in the world today.

If you want to visit some of these magnificent rooms, including the State and Private Apartments, but do not wish to become a footman, you can purchase the Buckingham Palace or Windsor Castle Virtual Tours.
