The queen’s family began a search for a new security chief days after Prince Harry alluded to security lapses around the monarch in a recent interview.
in a post for The Daily Mail, Royal commentator Richard Eden revealed that the Palace had posted an advertisement for a “physical and technical security adviser” based at Buckingham Palace.
The position reportedly includes reviewing security at royal residences and consulting on “staff security and incident response.”
The head of security will also work closely with the Home Office, MET Police and Homeland Security for a salary of £50,000 per annum.
The Daily Mail quoted the ad: “Security Liaison provides protective security advice and support. Joining this dedicated team, your role will focus on physical and technical security, ensuring the successful coordination and delivery of security measures for all Royal Household sites. As a subject matter expert, he will be a key liaison point for the team.”
The ad placement comes just days after Prince Harry, in an interview with NBC’s Hoda Kotb, said he is “making sure she’s protected and has the right people around her.”
