Although 2019 is almost over, Queen Elizabeth is doing everything she can to preserve the royal family’s legacy. A source recently revealed that the monarch has turned her attention to rectifying Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s private jet scandal.

Over the summer, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex received a wave of backlash after the public learned they traveled on a private jet four times in 11 days. Even though the rich and famous are often spotted boarding private jets, the couple’s trip happened after they spoke passionately about climate change issues.

An insider told the Daily Mail that Queen Elizabeth has taken measures to make sure future travel by members of the royal family is “efficient” and “cost-effective.” To do this, she has begun searching for a new director of travel.

According to the description of the advertised role, the candidate is expected to organize “appropriate travel services for the official duties of Members of the Royal Family and their Households.” 

The Director of Royal Travel, who will be paid an £85,000-a-year salary, will also have to manage and schedule “Royal Train trips” and organize “air travel.” In the past, British taxpayers have slammed the royal family over the cost of their traveling methods.

Along with booking trips, one of the most vital parts of the role is “researching and negotiating value for money contracts and options for travel.”

“This is a very senior position, looking after a very important part of household operations. It’s an essential part of the role that candidates are able to plan the right travel options and negotiate value for money contracts,” the source revealed.

Meghan and Prince Harry were criticized for weeks following the private jet scandal. Although the couple has since traveled on commercial flights, Queen Elizabeth doesn’t want the royal family to face another travel scandal.
