King Charles III's Staffers At Clarence House Will Be Laid Off
King Charles III's new role brings with it several key changes not only to his position but also to the jobs of the people that supported him when he was still residing at Clarence House. Since he is the new king of Britain, the dad of two is expected to relocate to Buckingham Palace in London very soon.
His top aide, Sir Clive Alderton, confirmed that some of the people that worked for King Charles III when he was still the heir to the throne would have to be laid off. After all, Clarence House would be closed down, and there would be no work functions inside the household.
"The portfolio of work previously undertaken in this household supporting the former Prince of Wales's personal interests, former activities, and household operations will no longer be carried out, and the household… at Clarence House will be closed down. It is therefore expected that the need for the posts principally based at Clarence House, whose work supports these areas will no longer be needed," he said (via The Guardian).

Alderton also confirmed that individuals who gave King Charles III direct, close, and personal support and advice would be able to retain their jobs. And those that would be laid off will receive increased redundancy pay and will also receive assistance in finding new jobs.
"I appreciate that this is unsettling news and I wanted to let you know of the support that is available at this point," Alderton said in his statement.

A spokesperson for Clarence House also confirmed that the operations within the household have already ceased, and constitution progress has begun.
"Our staff has given long and loyal service and while some redundancies will be unavoidable, we are working urgently to identify alternative roles for the greatest number of staff," the spokesperson said (via Us Weekly).
For now, King Charles III and the royal family are focused on celebrating the life well lived by Queen Elizabeth. They are still in mourning and will continue to do so seven days after the former monarch is laid to rest.
