Employees of Charles III dismissed and deprived of Buckingham

Nearly a hundred employees of Charles III learned on Monday that they were going to be made redundant in the coming days, reports The Guardian. Something to shock these staff members, some of whom have been in the service of the prince for decades, within the Clarence House residence.

“Everyone is absolutely livid,” a source told the British outlet. “All staff have been working late every night since Thursday [et la mort de la reine Elizabeth II], only to be confronted with this news”. Private secretaries, the finance office, the communications team and household staff would be affected by these job cuts, ordered by the new King Charles III.

“Inevitable” layoffs

Staff received a letter informing them of their dismissal during the service of thanksgiving for the Queen at St. Giles Cathedral in Edinburgh. The body of Elizabeth II was transported to London on Wednesday, where thousands of people are expected to pay their last respects to her in Westminster Hall, before the official funeral next Monday.

In the meantime, King Charles III and his wife Camilla have begun to move into the royal residence, Buckingham Palace. “Our staff have given long and loyal service and, although some redundancies are inevitable, we are working to identify alternative roles for as many staff as possible,” a Clarence House spokesperson said. After a period of consultation, certain positions will be maintained and assistance will be provided to people who will have to find a job.
