If you’re out there looking for a job and are a bit of a whizz at social media – or at least more of a whizz than a 93-year-old woman – then here’s the job for you.

The Queen is looking for a social media guru to boost her online profile, as if she needs it.

It’s not a bad wage, either. In fact, if you’re the successful candidate you’ll get a salary of between £45,000 and £50,000 for overseeing Lizzie’s website, Instagram, and Twitter accounts.

Not bad, eh?

The advertised position is for a Head of Digital Engagement and the successful candidate will work from Monday to Friday each week as a member of the royal communications team out of Buckingham Palace.

Not sure if there’s a Spar nearby to get something to eat, but there’s definitely worse places to work.

In exchange for all of this, you’ll be responsible for Her Maj’s 4.1m Twitter followers and 6.9m Instagram followers.

Apparently, Elizabeth II is keen to boost her online profile, presumably to Kendall Jenner-like levels.

Seriously though, who hasn’t heard of her? She’s just about the most recognisable person on the bloody planet.

It could be a bit of internal competition, perhaps?

By British Royal Family standards, Liz is lagging behind. Wills and Kate have got 10.4m Instagram fans across their Kensington Palace account, whereas Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Sussex Royal page boasts 9.9m folks.

An advert for The Queen’s comms position reads: “It is about never standing still and finding new ways to maintain the Queen’s presence in the public eye and on the world stage.

“This is what makes working for the Royal Household exceptional.
