Prince William's Girlfriend Lands a New Job

Prince William's girlfriend, Kate Middleton, has a new job – working for British clothing chain Jigsaw.

A source at Jigsaw tells PEOPLE: "I can confirm she works for the company, but we're not making any other comment."

The Girl Most Likely to Be Queen's title: accessory buyer. On Thursday, her duties included brewing tea and fetching drinks and snacks as she assisted on a fashion shoot, according to Britain's The Sun newspaper.

Middleton, 24, who is frequently photographed wearing Jigsaw, has close ties with the brand. Jigsaw's owner is tycoon John Robinson, a friend of Prince Charles.

On vacation in Mustique earlier this year, Middleton and William stayed at Robinson's mansion. Post-Mustique, Middleton appeared at a Jigsaw party – wearing Jigsaw.

The new job gives Middleton, who has been working on establishing her own children's clothing line (her parents own a kids' party paraphernalia company), a chance to learn about the business.
