The Royal Family are hiring, and the job means you LIVE in the palace

Well, wouldn't this be nice?

Imagine living in Buckingham Palace. Imagine the views, the art, the parties, and of course, the people bopping around inside.


Now, imagine working there.

The royal family are looking for a gardener to tend to their lawns, with the caption of the job being, "It's admiring your lawn before millions do the same."

Er, OK then.
