Here's your chance to get up close and personal with the royal family: The Daily Mail reports Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are in need of an "exceptional" member of staff to join their team. Two weeks ago, Linkedin uploaded a posting for a communications assistant for the newly-engaged couple and the Royal Household.

The 12-month fixed term contract would see the successful candidate based in Buckingham Palace, with the opportunity to travel in the United Kingdom and overseas "to support important visits and engagements."

"Joining this fast-paced and dynamic team, you'll assist senior colleagues with both proactive and reactive communications,"the job posting states. "You'll organise coverage of set-piece Palace engagements including investitures and garden parties, and provide support as required for off-site engagements."

"You'll also play a role in producing content for a variety of platforms. From press announcements and media briefing notes, to social media updates and feature articles; you'll develop your skills as you take on each new challenge."

Given that recent royal tours have seen the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge jet off to the likes of Germany, Barbados, India and Bhutan, we have a feeling this might not be your run-of-the-mill job.

If that wasn't enough, the employee will be rewarded with a "comprehensive benefits package," which includes 33 days holiday per annum (inclusive of Bank Holidays) and a 15 percent employer contribution pension scene.

With any degree subject permitted and a salary of £22,000 pro rata, the job sounds to be the perfect opportunity for a graduate with an interest in the news, media relations and current affairs. To apply, check out the job advertisement here.

According to a tweet from Daily Mail correspondent Rebecca English, Markle has already gained a royal personal assistant in recent weeks. The role has reportedly gone to Amy Pickerill who has been a senior communications officer in the press office at Kensington Palace.
