Tracey Waterman, head of housekeeping recruitment at the royal household, said she places a dead fly either in the fireplace or carpet in a room of the castle. She then brings candidates into the room, giving them a chance to look around. She said out of 10 candidates, about half will notice the fly. Of those who notice, one will bend down and remove it. That person is the ideal housekeeper for Windsor Castle.
