Kate Middleton is looking for a new member of staff after her private secretary decided to step down five years into the job.
Rebecca Deacon, 34, has held the prestigious position since the Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding to Prince William in 2012, but she is moving on to pastures new.
Kate will now be on the lookout for a replacement, so it’s time to get that CV ready!
The successful candidate must be on point when it comes to organisation, as Kate’s diary will need taking care of, and she will have to be briefed before every single engagement. Plus, she’ll need accompanying around the world *sigh*.
Along with the actual work involved, being Kate’s press secretary definitely has its perks.
Not only did Rebecca get to hangout with Prince George and Princess Charlotte all day, she is getting married at the Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace later this month.
The exclusive venue can only be used by those with a direct link to the Royal family. Not too shabby, eh?
We await the job ad but, until then, this is the official line: “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,” a Kensington Palace spokesman said.
“She plans to leave the household in the summer.
‘Their Royal Highnesses are incredibly grateful for all the hard work and support Rebecca has provided over the past ten years, and wish her well in the next phase of her career.”
