Queen searching for decorator to give Buckingham Palace sprucing up for £30k

The Queen is on the hunt for a talented decorator to give Buckingham Palace a major makeover, according to a £30,000 job advertisement.

Posted on the Royal Household's website, the job ad says the right candidate could see a maximum salary of £30k for the 40-hour-per-week position and has until April 3 to apply.

The painter will be expected to "regularly work" on specialist wall coverings, sign-writing and use specialist paint finishes including marbling and gilding.

It seems to be included in the £369 million taxpayer-funded renovation of the 775-room building which is set to be complete in 2027.

This will be the first time the palace has been decorated since the monarch ascended to the throne in 1952.

But despite the costly improvements, the Queen still plans to make Windsor Castle her permanent home and will never fully come back to London.

However, it is believed Prince Charles will reside at the palace when he becomes King, the Daily Mail reports.

The job advertisement on the website reads: "It’s adding the decorative finishes, for people to appreciate for years to come.
