Prince William and Prince Harry have been enjoying the perks of being royals, and one of these could be having their own valet service.

However, royal fans became confused as to the job of the valet after they saw manservants helping the royals get dressed on “Downton Abbey.” On the online forum site Quora, royal fans shared their thoughts about Prince William and Prince Harry’s valet service.

Eileen Wood said that the Duke of Cambridge and the Duke of Sussex both have valets. However, their job is not to dress up the royal family.

“The valet’s job is to ensure the clothes are ready to wear. That means making sure shoes are shined, suits pressed, uniform brass properly polished and placed, ceremonial ribbons in good condition. The valet is responsible for ensuring the clothing is cleaned and repaired when necessary, and laundered items returned to the Royal Sock Drawers,” she said.

Dawn Rutherford said that it is actually Prince Charles that has a valet and he has had one ever since he was a young boy. His sons, on the other hand, usually dress more informally. Prince William and Kate Middleton have also expressed their desire to live simple lives with only a few servants.

James O’Malley, on the other hand, said that Prince William and Prince Harry most certainly have a valet that helps them dress up.

“Yes, the Royals, despite giving the impression that they are hardworking, independent people, have an army of staff to care for their whim. It’s a part of being royal, having servants to do everything for you,” he said.

Mark Harrison, however, contradicted O’Malley’s claim and said that valets usually help royals or aristocrats dress up if they have to wear some sort of costume for an engagement. The point of having a valet is to seek their help when one cannot wear clothes by himself.

But since the royals wear normal clothes every day, there is no need for them to seek the help of a valet in this regard.
