They each have a private secretary plus the press people. Harry would have his private sec plus 2 press people probably Jason & Nick.
These were the people listed in the CC. Some it was the same type for C&C as Harry.

We will have to see how many people accompany William and Catherine to India.

For the Australian trip, the CC read:

Quote:
KENSINGTON PALACE:
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge this evening departed from Heathrow Airport, London, for New Zealand and Australia.
Sir David Manning, Mr. Miguel Head, Miss Rebecca Deacon and Dr. Edward Perkins are in attendance
Since there were definitely more than four people on that tour, I'd suggest that the CC is not a reliable indicator of how many people accompany the royals on tour.

The CC doesn't list everyone one the tour. The entry for the Cambridges return from Australia in 2014 list only Sir David Manning, Mr Miguel Head, Miss Rebecca Deacon and Dr Edward Perkins. We know there were other people on the tour such as Press Guy Nick, 2 PAs including Natasha Archer, Amanda Cook hairdresser and Nanny Maria. However, none of those other people were mentioned in the CC. It's just the 2 Private Sec, Communication head and foreign policy adviser.

As an example, the PoW and DoC took 22 people with them on their March 2006 trip to the Middle East and India. The CC listed 6 of them.

Right now, the press is fixated on W&K -- I'd venture a guess that we're not going to find out how many people C&C and H took on their recent tours unless it can be used to make W&K look bad, just because that's the dominant narrative now.

Kensington Palace usually let it be known the number of staff accompany them on the tour.

I've seen a list in Hello but am having probs loading it. I'm sure it's on the Internet.

Key issue is 4 press officers but the reason is that they need a couple with them, and a couple go ahead to prepare. The press do the same - some stay and others go ahead. It is practical and normal but much depends on how the press report it.

There is a lot going on, with a lot of travel over a short period. To me it makes sense.

Victoria Murphy said 11 people on Twitter. 4 are press officers, 1 hairdresser, David Manning, Rebecca & Miguel. That's 8. So the last three -Natasha, Fiji Orderly guy, another PA or an equerry perhaps?

"The Queen has advertised for a new Butler but has warned applicants 'the learning curve will be steep.'The successful trainee butler will be based at Buckingham Palace and start on 18,850-a-year, provided they can pass an entrance exam."

Her Brittanic Majesty is a frugal boss, I am afraid to say. In the Netherlands a simple starting lackey already earns 2.500 Euro a month. With 8% holiday payment and 8,3% end of the year payment this results in a year salary of almost 35.000 Euro. (Extra salary for working in evening or night shifts, weekends, etc. not included). Almost the double of that butler at Buckingham Palace!

Maybe the British butler has accomodation, but is that favourable? Living under the boss' roof and no possibility to purchase an own independent house with that "hand out" wchich is called "salary"?

The advantage of living at BP is the ability to save and then buy a property outright. I had friends who did exactly that - they worked at BP in the 1950s and 1960s. When my friend got pregnant she had to resign and they were able to buy a flat in London without a mortgage from their saved up salary from working at BP and living in the centre of London.

If you don't have to pay the utility bills and have subsidised housing and food you should be able to save if you want to do so.

This is also a trainee position so there would be pay increases as skills develop and when they have worked at BP for some years can see their way into some very well-paying jobs in the industry.

Surely if people dont find the economic terms adequate, they dont have to apply for the job.

I have looked it up, assuming the new butler has to work some 40 hours a week, the Queen pays the butler the UK minimum wage plus a little bonus (I think the end-of-the-year bonus). The article stated that when the butler makes use of accomodation, this will be calculated in his income (with other words: no extras, he simply has to pay for living under his boss' roof).

That however is heavily subsidised compared to living costs in Central London.
