New £22,000-a-year security guard have been hired for Prince William and Kate

A crossbow-wielding attacker broke into Windsor Castle's grounds on Christmas morning.

He was killed by police near Prince William's west London home with Kate Middleton and their children George, Charlotte and Louis.

So Historic Royal Palaces apparently hired a new guard to protect the young royal household.
Making Kensington Palace a safe and secure environment to work and visit will be part of the responsibility.


‘We now have an interesting opportunity for a security officer (cover) to join our operations team.'

Your job as a security officer will be to help make Kensington Palace a safe place to work and visit.

It will entail tasks such as entrance control, patrolling, updating shift logs and monitoring CCTV, as well as opening and closing the estate, and assisting guests in any manner possible.

A support role, your shift schedule may be ad hoc at times, involving day and night shifts on a weekly cycle.

Two days, two nights on, and four nights off make up the £22,390 part-time job.
The prospective hire should have previous security control room expertise and be familiar with technical systems.

While the Queen was celebrating Christmas, the 19-year-old suspect allegedly ‘scaled Windsor Castle with a crossbow'.

An incident between a Southampton man, Jaswant Singh Chail, and the royal's Berkshire home prompted a massive security assessment.

Last month, a suspected shooter was shot three times in a taxi in Kensington Gardens, near Kensington Palace.
