Fancy a job in the Royal Palace?

Having recently mused about the modern day etiquette between Royal families, I was pleased to read that Paul @ Blogue has compiled a list of some fantastic jobs of old in the Royal household. Bags being The Master of The Great Wardrobe (sounds very exciting doesn't it?)
Other good jobs
The Clerk of the Closet, a position that still exists, has nothing to do with “the Great Wardrobe”. He’s the household cleric, usually a former diocesan bishop. The pay is lousy: £7 a year.

The Queen has two ceremonial “bodyguards” on some state occasions called the Gold Stick and the Silver Stick; Princess Anne is one of the two Gold Sticks at the moment (because she's
Colonel of the Blues and Royals, part of the Household Cavalry) and you know you wouldn't want to mess with her.

The Page of the Backstairs serves the Queen and Prince Philip’s meals if they’re eating in their apartments. He also tidies up and lets people in and out of the apartments.

Now, if only someone would hire me to live in Melbourne and be a professional napper... a girl can dream, right?
