The Queen is searching for a party planner for her household - and the role could be suited to her grandson’s sister-in-law Pippa Middleton.

The successful applicant of the £26,000 a year position, officially titled events coordinator, will be based at Buckingham Palace.

Candidates must have experience “working in a hospitality environment which delivers events to the highest standards”, according to the advert on the website of The Royal Household.

The job will be within the Master of the Household’s Department, which deals with the organisation, running and staffing of the hospitality and catering events at all the Queen’s residences in the UK.

The ideal candidate should “be able to communicate confidently with a wide range of individuals and organisations in a welcoming and friendly manner” and be efficient and organised.

The job also asks potential applicants to have technical skills including knowledge of event management booking systems and MS Office packages.

Pippa Middleton, younger sister of the Duchess of Cambridge, could be the ideal potential candidate. Her parents run a successful party planning business and Pippa is about to release her first book, Celebrate, a guide to entertaining all year round.
