The new chauffeur will hardly object to finding that his or her base will be in the heart of London at Buckingham Palace. The Evening Standard reports that the job provides live-in quarters, your meals, 33 days annual leave and also a salary of £24,000. The online advert on the Royal Family's website explains how the driver will become part of an overall busy and supportive team. They will not only drive the Royal Family but officials from the household, visitors and other such guests.
