Prince Charles plans to cut staff numbers across the Windsor mansion.
The 74-year-old monarch is reportedly keen to reduce staff numbers, leaving some employees feeling “extremely concerned about their futures.”
An insider told the Daily Mirror:
It has been suggested that the Queen Elizabeth woman waiting at Sandringham is among those at risk of losing their jobs.
After the Queen’s death, Prince Charles will ascend to the throne in September and will be crowned at Westminster Abbey in London on May 6.
The ceremony sees the King crowned along with his wife Camilla, Queen Consort, with a historic service performed by Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby.
“The coronation will be rooted in long-standing tradition and pomp, reflecting the role of the monarch today and looking to the future,” Buckingham Palace said in a statement.
At the ceremony, Prince Charles will be anointed as monarch, and Camilla will also be crowned as part of the ceremony, albeit in a simpler ceremony.
Coronations are expected to be more low-key than ever. In June 1953, the late Queen crowned her in a three-hour ceremony in which thousands lined the streets of London.
A landmark event marks the formal consecration of a monarch’s majestic powers. However, Charles is already said to be planning a scaled-down ceremony.
An official said recently, “It is hoped that the 1762 golden stagecoach seen at the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee will be seen again. The monarch’s anointing will also be retained, but with fewer guests and a shorter ceremony. It is done.”
