Palace Puts Up Job Listing For Communications Assistant Amid Kate Middleton PR Disaster


Buckingham Palace is reportedly recruiting a communications assistant amid the PR disaster that has plagued the Princess of Wales, Kate Middleton.

Although the timing of the job listing coincides with the conspiracy theories swirling around Kate’s health and whereabouts, it is likely not linked to the princess as Kensington Palace handles her affairs, not Buckingham.

Palace In Search Of A Communications Assistant Amid Kate Middleton’s Photoshop Scandal


Amid a series of recent media challenges, Buckingham Palace is actively recruiting a full-time communications assistant within its Private Secretary department.

The not-so-lucrative position offers a Monday through Friday schedule with an annual salary of $32,000. According to the job posting, benefits include 25 days of annual leave, a pension plan, and a 20% discount at Royal Collection Trust gift shops across England.

Responsibilities entail promoting “the work, role, relevance, and value of the Royal Family to a worldwide audience.”

“The reaction to our work is always high-profile, and so reputation and impact will be at the forefront of all that you do. Whether working on a state visit, ceremonial event, or royal engagement, you’ll make sure our communications consistently spark interest and reach a range of audiences,” the memo added.

The job post also noted that the ideal candidate must have “outstanding interpersonal skills” and be able “to thrive in a fast-paced and dynamic environment,” as the role entails generating content across diverse social media channels, alongside offering administrative support and overseeing media access during royal functions.

The New Job Comes Amid Kate Middleton’s PR Fiasco

The timing for the job listing has raised eyebrows due to the PR nightmare that has plagued the Princess of Wales since she released a Photoshopped image of herself and her children to mark Mother’s Day.

The Photoshop scandal was so bad that top news agencies around the world released a “kill” notice, requesting for the image to be removed from all their platforms due to “manipulation.”

Kate eventually issued an apology for the “confusion caused” by her “editing” the Mother’s Day photo, but it was not enough to stop the conspiracy theories surrounding her health.

In an effort to quell the rumors, the princess was spotted with her husband, Prince William, visiting her favorite farm stand, the Windsor Farm Shop.

Unfortunately, not even a video of the princess has been able to slow down the speculations and conspiracy theories, as some royal fans now claim that it was a body double or Kate look-alike in the farm stand clip.

Palace sources emphasized that the job post was for Buckingham Palace, the office of King Charles III and Queen Camilla, and not connected to the media scandal swirling around Princess of Wales Kate Middleton.

Amid his ongoing cancer treatment, Charles III and Queen Camilla remain active, with the monarch resuming royal duties despite baseless online rumors of his demise by Russian media.

Recently, Charles arrived at Clarence House, amid his cancer treatment, looking upbeat as he hosted the Korean War veterans at Buckingham Palace, marking the conflict’s 70th anniversary.

Following this, the royal family will host a reception for approximately 200 Korean War veterans at Buckingham Palace’s Bow Room. Princess Anne, the Princess Royal, will co-host with Sophie, the Duchess of Edinburgh, delivering a speech on behalf of the king.

These public engagements aim to dispel swirling health rumors about Charles’ health since his cancer diagnosis in February, reassuring royal fans of his well-being.

However, despite his gradual return to his official duties, Charles has been reducing his royal engagements as he continues to receive outpatient care for his ailing health.

The monarch remains eager to attend the upcoming Trooping the Colour celebration in June, albeit with potential adjustments to tradition.

Palace sources suggest that Charles may opt to be driven in a carriage to the June 15 ceremony instead of riding horseback. This modification allows him to observe the event from a podium, accommodating his health needs while maintaining his commitment to royal duties.

During her trip to Northern Ireland, Camilla assured well-wishers that Charles was “doing very well” and expressed his disappointment at missing the visit.

As she met with business owners and received local produce on his behalf, Camilla conveyed Charles’ gratitude for the thoughtful gestures from the community.

While interacting with the locals who joked about men “not being the best patients,” the queen humorously responded: “I try to keep him in order.” Camilla added: “He’s very disappointed he can’t come.”

During her visit, Camilla stopped at Arcadia, a longstanding delicatessen on Lisburn Road that has existed since 1933. At the store, she was presented with a variety of local delicacies, including charcuterie, cheese, and Irish black butter.
