The Royal Civil Service is the branch of the State that supplanted the Royal Household pursuant to the Royal Civil Service (Establishment) Bill of 2018. These officers retain their positions between changes of Government, and may only be dismissed for cause.

It was initially administered by a Commissioner; however, that office was abolished in 2019. The appointment of Permanent Secretaries is now recommended by the relevant Minister.
