But her duties will include cleaning the main residence of Elizabeth II as well as other castles. This also applies to the Scottish palace of Her Majesty Balmoral, where you have to work three months a year.
Among all the duties of the maid to the queen will be to oversee the condition of the offices, royal chambers, corridors, etc.д. These are only a small part of the daily tasks of a royal servant.

It is worth saying that even the best job in the world can not in all cases bring joy and good luck to its applicant. A striking example of this is the Briton Ben Southall, who a few years ago became the caretaker of a whole tropical island, and then almost died after an attack of jellyfish, turned into a real workaholic and lost his mate.
