The Guardian reports that during the Monday service for the Queen in Edinburgh, twelve members of the Clarence House staff received notification that they would be laid go. It was referred to as “unsettling news” even by the King’s secretary.
Queen Elizabeth is currently travelling for the last time. The final time Her Majesty departed Balmoral, where she died away, was on Sunday in an oak casket bearing a large bouquet and the Royal Standard of Scotland.
Just a few days after Queen Elizabeth died, King Charles was formally proclaimed king. He will have many new responsibilities, but regrettably, as he stated in his speech, this will imply less philanthropic work.
For almost 20 years, he and Camilla have resided in Clarence House. It is still unknown as of now now if he and the Queen Consort would relocate to Buckingham Palace or stay in their current home.
However, many of the King’s staff members received a difficult message on Monday. Staff members apparently received a redundancy letter and were informed that they could lose their jobs during the church ceremony for the Queen.
Twelve employees of Clarence House have received notices of redundancy, according to The Guardian, when King Charles and the Queen Consort relocate their offices to Buckingham Palace.
Up to 100 staff, some of whom have worked there for decades, were informed that they would lose their employment at the King’s official house.
They were “worked round the clock” when they received the announcement to ensure that King Charles’ accession to the throne would be “smooth.”
Private secretaries, the communications team, home staff, and the finance office are among the various staff divisions.
