13. Britain is notorious for its deeply entrenched class system, and though it’s on the way out, the super-rich like to be part of it.
It could be debated all day whether or not there is still a British class system and whether it matters or not, but one thing is for certain – wherever millionaires in the UK go, domestic service follows.

Who else is going to clean the 10 bedrooms in that palatial Kensington mansion? High-end domestic staff recruitment agencies are providing training for more and more unusual services, such as how to perform silver service on a yacht, thanks to all these rich people moving in.
