The Queen Is Hiring a Royal Travel Director — and It Could Be You


In case you didn’t know, the British Royal Family travels a lot. This year alone, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle took a tour of several African nations, while Prince William and Kate Middleton toured Pakistan. The Queen also heads out quite often to her homes all around the United Kingdom, while Charles and Camilla are gearing up for their own African tour in 2020.

However, the family doesn’t exactly plan their own travel. They leave that up to their staff instead. But, it appears the family needs a little help as they are currently looking for a Travel Director. And, if you love both the royals and travel enough, the job could be yours.

“This role is critical to ensuring that the Royal Household operates and purchases safe, efficient, cost-effective and appropriate travel services for the official duties of Members of the Royal Family and their Households,” the job posting for Royal Travel Director reads.

In the role, the new hire will have “overall responsibility for organizing air travel and overseeing the operations of The Queen’s Helicopter Flight and usage of scheduled train services and the Royal Train.” The hire will also be the go-between with relevant authorities to provide advice on travel and security.
