Royal Occupations

When the The House of Orange-Nassau lived at Paleis Het Loo they had a lot of staff working for them, for example: lackeys, kitchen-maids, cooks, couriers, a winecellar keeper, a silver keeper and even a clocks custodian to wind up all the clocks. The stables also needed a lot of work. The equerry, coachmen, groomsmen, rig master and farrier kept them running. When the cars came chauffeurs were added to the stable staff.
