Apparently, Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton, are ready to welcome a new member into the family.

According to People magazine, the couple is looking for a discreet person to assist with housework on the property.

The job posting, hosted on the site, point out that a professional with experience in assisting "Royal residences" is requested to support the management of all cleaning operations and will actively substitute the main housekeeper in case of absence.

To work in their palace, the Duke and Duchess ask to have an organized approach and to be able to "manage a varied workload, show initiative, be content to work flexibly, including being able to travel."
