The Royal Household’s communications department is seeking someone to join their “fast paced and dynamic team” (absolutely the words you associate with “monarchy”) to cover state visits, award ceremonies, and other royal doings in new and interesting ways. If you’re applying, here are some things I think we’d all like to see from the royals’ social media.
1) Like, 70 percent more corgis.
The queen owns four corgis (as pictured in one of her new portraits), and yet a quick scroll through the British monarchy’s Instagram shows not a single other corgi photo. Do they even know what the Internet is like? It’s mostly corgis. It’s very nice that the queen is shaking hands with all these dignitaries, but get those dogs in there.
2) #qhf (Queen Hat Fridays)
The queen’s hat game is on point, so there should definitely be far more hat photos happening.
