If you got to work for the Royal Family, you're going to work for the Firm. The Firm has strict rules and if anybody breaks them, you're out.

It's a job with a boss like no other. Despite meager pay and long hours, there are more than 1,200 staff in royal palaces. However, working for the royal family comes with numerous surprises that have kept royal servants gossiping for centuries.

Even after Prince William married Kate Middleton and announced they were to usher in a more modern, egalitarian style of monarchy, their life at Kensington Palace has proved anything but. Though times are changing, there will always be a job going at a palace, with many secrets hidden behind closed doors.

Serving the Royals: Inside the Firm is a documentary by John Curtin that details the myriad jobs that servants are required to do for the royal family. Curtin dives deep into the relationships that inevitably develop between the workers and the royals, and the range of scandals that sneak out of the palace, despite the royals' desperation for secrecy.
