Following King Charles III’s ascension to the throne, they were now informed that they would shortly be laid off.

Meanwhile, the decision to inform King Charles’s personnel of their impending layoffs during the official time of mourning has been criticized as “nothing short of callous” by a civil service trade union.
To that effect, the Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS) general secretary Mark Serwotka said:
“While some changes across the households were to be expected, as roles across the royal family change, the scale and speed at which this has been announced is callous in the extreme.
Least of all because we do not know what staffing the incoming Prince of Wales and his family might need.”
Also, the union, which represents some palace employees, he continued, was striving to guarantee that staff have
“full job security” adding that it kept up its support for other royal employees who were worried that this revelation would “threaten their futures at this already trying time.”
