The Royals have a new Mary Poppins! A source confirms to Us Weekly that Prince William and Kate Middleton have hired a new housekeeper to help them at Anmer Hall after months of searching. The Sun was first to break the news. 

Sadie Rice is the lucky new hire. Rice previously worked for Crown Prince Haakon, his wife Mette-Marit, and their children in Oslo, Scandinavia. The single 33-year-old employee has already moved into Anmer Hall. 

Her duties will include running the house, being in charge of household supplies, preparing and cooking meals, taking care of William and Kate's wardrobes, caring for the family's dog Lupo, and helping nanny Maria with Prince George and Princess Charlotte. 

The original job listing noted "discretion and loyalty is paramount" in the hiring process. It also listed duties such as "cleaning silverware and glassware."

Rice is British and grew up in Shoreham-by-Sea, West Sussex. She also previously was a maid in Buckingham Palace. After three rounds of interviews — one with William and Kate themselves — Rice landed the job. She started two weeks ago.
