Staff at Clarence House, home to King Charles III, have been warned their contracts will be terminated. The reason is that he and Camilla are moving to Buckingham Palace after the death of Queen Elizabeth, reports “The Guardian”.

Dozens of staff, including private secretaries, the communications team, housekeeping staff and Clarence House’s finance office, were given redundancy notices on Monday. It happened during a service for his late mother at St. Giles Cathedral in Edinburgh, Scotland, according to people familiar with the matter. The laid off people are 100 people.

Staff were informed they could lose their jobs in a letter from the king’s chief aide, Sir Clive Alderton.

“A change in the role of our hosts means a change for our household. The activities that have been going on here will not be the same, there will be no need for the posts until now and Clarence House will be closed,” reads Alderton’s letter, seen by The Guardian”.

However, the letter states that employees who have provided “direct, close, personal support and advice” will remain in their positions.

Those released are expected to receive increased layoff benefits, as well as assistance in finding new jobs.

On Tuesday, Queen Elizabeth’s coffin was flown to London, with Princess Anne once again accompanying her mother’s remains.
