King Charles PR team faces axe in Buckingham Palace as up to 100 staff are warned of redundancy

Prince Charles Denies Any Wrongdoing In Bags-Of-Cash Scandal

According to reports, everyone working in King Charles’ Clarence House press office has been informed that their jobs are in jeopardy due to his transfer to Buckingham Palace.

They were among up to 100 upset employees, including those in research and finance, who received letters in the last few days informing them of their impending dismissal as a result of the former Prince of Wales’s succession to the throne, according to Mail Online.

The report said that they have previously been told that only a process of consultation would legally have to begin as a result of the Queen’s death.

 

Now dozens have been specifically told their jobs are under threat as the process of merging the King’s former household at Clarence House with the existing team at Buckingham Palace begins.

 

The move has left many employees, some of whom have worked for the royals for several decades, upset and concerned.



Palace sources said the potential redundancies were ‘sadly inevitable’ as a result of the change in reign.

 

Buckingham Palace, which employs more than 1,000 staff, is not affected as employees work for the sovereign.

 

The new Prince of Wales – Prince William – already has his own team in place at Kensington Palace, leaving the loyal Clarence House team caught between ‘a rock and a hard place’.

 

‘Unfortunately, the process of integration means that the roles at Clarence House, the household of the former Prince of Wales, are no longer required,’ a royal aide explained.

 

Senior officials say they are trying to find as many employees as they can new roles at Buckingham Palace, although they say they are ‘mindful of the head count’ at the tax payer-funded institution, and clearly not everyone can be accommodated.
