Britain's Queen Elizabeth is looking for a new bagpiper.
The monarch needs someone to fill the coveted role to play the Scottish instrument after her current piper - Major Derek Potter - announced that he will be leaving the role after four years in the job.
A spokeswoman for the army said: "Pipe Major Potter is stepping down as the queen's piper next month. He has enjoyed tremendously his time in the role which has been a real honour. It is understood it is his intention to leave the army."
During his time in the job Major Potter has performed at a number of high profile events for the royal family including the wedding of her granddaughter Zara Phillips, visits from US President Barack Obama and the queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations.
The hunt is now on to find a new piper who the queen will personally interview and her decision will be based on whether she thinks their personalities are compatible as they will meet on a regular basis.
The post is given to a serving soldier and they will be kept busy with duties which include playing at 9am every morning at wherever the queen is in residence and escorting the monarch at events.
The bagpipe has a long history of being used at royal events and the queen is known for her love of the instrument.
Former deerstalker at Balmoral, Max Stewart, told the Mail Online: "I found all of the royal family very interested in the pipes. I played for the queen for 10 years. The queen particularly likes a jig called 'Glasgow Police Pipers' - a real foot tapper.
"Being the queen's piper you get to know the royal family well on a personal level. She likes the pipes and takes quite an interest in the subject."
