‘Sadly inevitable!’ King Charles III’s press team face 100 staff redundancy warning
A number of personal staff look set to move from Clarence House to Buckingham Palace.
King Charles III’s entire press team face potential redundancy following the Queen’s death, a report has claimed.
The risk of up to as many as 100 jobs comes as a result of Charles’ move from Clarence House to Buckingham Palace.
Staff across a range of different specialities, including research and finance, were sent letters in the past few days explaining the concern.
However, the Daily Mail has claimed that staff had previously been told that a process of consultation would legally have to begin as a result of the Queen’s death earlier this month.
Staff are reportedly upset and concerned about the news.
According to the Daily Mail, an ex-royal staffer said: “I know people there are worried and upset.”
A royal aide said: “We are absolutely doing everything we can to protect and look after them and anyone who can’t be accommodated elsewhere will be offered above statutory redundancy pay.”
Another added: “Unfortunately the process of integration means that the roles at Clarence House, the household of the former Prince of Wales, are no longer required.”
Some of the Clarence House staff are expected to join Charles in Buckingham Palace.
Queen’s maid of honour for coronation passed away on the eve of Sovereign’s funeral
Queen Elizabeth II had six maids of honour to carry the train of her dress for her coronation in 1953 and on the eve of the Queen’s state funeral one of the six, Lady Mary Russell, passed away.
Lady Mary Russell’s family announced that she passed away peacefully at home aged 88 on September 18.
The Queen’s coronation train was 21ft long and Lady Mary helped to carry it as the Queen walked down the aisle at Westminster Abbey towards the Archbishop of Canterbury, Geoffrey Fisher.
The daughter of the Earl and Countess of Haddington was chosen as a maid of honour who wore embroidered silver gowns paired with tiaras and long silk gloves for the occasion.
Lady Mary previously spoke out about being part of the historic event and called it “overwhelming and moving”.
