Private Secretary’s Office
Buckingham Palace, London SW1A 1AA, United Kingdom
Dear Royal Communications Team,
My name is Adele Chapin and I'm writing in regards to the Digital Engagement position listed on the British Monarchy's website — the one that pays up to £50,000 a year for a 37.5-hour workweek that involves uploading Prince George and Princess Charlotte photos to Instagram.
I'm so in, and not just for the free lunches or 33 days of vacation. I'm willing to drop everything and move across the pond to steer The Queen and The Royal Household's social media presence.
Why should you hire me for this high-profile position? I have experience using a range of content management systems, social media platforms, and analytics tools. I also have a proven strategy to maximize likes and retweets. It involves daily Instagrams of Princess Charlotte and fluffy stuffed animals.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to be able to share two new photographs of Princess Charlotte. They were taken by The Duchess in early November at their home in Norfolk. The Duke and Duchess continue to receive warm messages about Princess Charlotte from all around the world and they hope that everyone enjoys these lovely photos as much as they do.

They show Prince George standing in front of the mural on the outside of the nursery building. Photograph ©The Duchess of Cambridge
Please find my CV attached. Thank you for your consideration, and I look forward to hearing from you!
