The Mountbatten-Windsors are undoubtedly the most talked-about family in the world, with everything from Princess Eugenie’s future arrival to Prince William and Kate Middleton’s snow day with their three children making news.
It wasn’t a job advert from Her Majesty that made news this week however, but a job announcement, with the Monarch revealing that she has hired the former Director of MI5 for a Buckingham Palace job.
The role in question? Lord Chamberlain for the Queen.
Lord Peel who currently holds the position announced his intentions to retire last year.
Releasing a statement on behalf of the Queen, a Palace Spokesperson announced:
‘The Queen has appointed Andrew Parker, Baron Parker of Minsmere, as Lord Chamberlain to succeed Lord Peel, who will retire on 31 March.’
The statement continued: ‘Lord Parker will take up his appointment on 1 April 2021.’
Congratulations to Andrew Parker and of course the Queen!
