Prince William and Catherine Middleton visit Witton Country Park, Darwen, Lancashire, UK.

Prince William and new wife Kate are advertising for staff for their new apartment at Kensington Palace.

The pair wed in April and have been doing their own housework while at their home in Anglesey, close to where William works as an RAF search and rescue pilot.

However Buckingham Palace has started asking its staff to apply for roles as their housekeeper, butler and valet once they move into the London home.

A source said to UK newspaper Daily Mirror: "The whole place is buzzing with excitement. Lots of people will want these prestigious jobs.

"The royals always like to promote existing staff rather than bring in people from outside. This is a golden opportunity for someone to be in at the beginning of William and Kate's working and domestic lives."
