The Queen pays someone to do WHAT at Buckingham Palace?!

This might just be the weirdest job ever

Ever wanted to work for the Royal Family? Well, it turns out there are plenty of weird and wonderful jobs you could have at Buckingham Palace.

All you’ve got to do is check out the royal jobs board. We’re not kidding, it’s an actual thing. Hey Liz, is that how James Bond was hired for the 2012 Olympics?

We’re dying to know.

The latest royal job discovery might just be the strangest (most genius) one yet, though. Why? Well, the Queen pays THIS very important person to make sure she doesn’t suffer any wardrobe malfunctions, whilst she’s out and about doing her royal duties.

Can you guess the job title? Nope, it’s not Royal Seamstress!

It’s not Royal Personal Shopper, either.


Yep, that’s right the Queen has her very own Royal Shoe-Wearer. Their role is to break all of the Queen’s shoes in for her before she wears them.

Where can we get one?!

QUIZ: Who said it – The Queen or Camila Cabello?

17 times the queen was an absolute kween during her 65 years on the throne

According to a royal insider, the shoe-wearer breaks HRH’s shoes in wearing beige cotton ankle socks. They’re also only allowed to walk on carpets in them to avoid scuffing.

Obviously, after finding out about this we HAD to find more odd jobs you can have at Buckingham Palace.
