Fresh from making her first official appearance since the birth of Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, Kate Middleton has not only followed this up by watching a polo match featuring her husband and brother-in-law, but she’s also helped to hire a new housekeeper for their Anmer Hall home.
The Sun, via Us Magazine, were the first to report that the Duke and Duchess Of Cambridge have finally decided upon their new housekeeper, after months of searching.
Kate Middleton and Prince William have decided to hire Sadie Rice as their new housekeeper, and it’s been reported that the 33-year-old has already moved into Anmer Hall, the couple’s home, which is located in Norfolk, England.
Rice had to go through three rounds of interviews before she officially landed the job, and one of these included individual interviews with both Prince William and Kate Middleton, too. After being confirmed in the position and moving into Anmer Hall, Rice is believed to have started her employment two weeks ago.
And it’s quite clear from Rice’s impressive CV that she has the credentials to excel in the role. Over the last few years Rice has honed her craft by working in Oslo, Norway, for the Crown Prince Haakon, his wife Mette-Marit, and their various children.
But what will Sadie Rice be tasked with doing while at Anmer Hall? Well, she’ll have to help Maria Borrallo, the current nanny of Prince George and Princess Charlotte, to care for the children. However, her main duties will revolve around her looking after the home, cooking meals, preparing Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wardrobes, and also looking after Lupo, the family dog.
The original job listing for the position insisted “discretion and loyalty is paramount,” while it also added that one of the duties is “cleaning silverware and glassware.”
According to People, the advert, which was originally posted in the Lady back in March, also detailed that the job will entail “cleaning all areas of the house to a high standard; caring for and maintaining the home owners’ clothing; cleaning silverware and glassware’ purchasing groceries and general provisions for the house; and dealing with deliveries.”
Rice is originally from England, and she has also worked as a maid in Buckingham Palace before her position in Scandinavia.
