King and Queen attend church to remember Queen Elizabeth II
King Charles may never fill his mother’s shoes following the first anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s death, his ex-butler has claimed.
Grant Harrold worked for King Charles when he was the Prince of Wales, and said he won’t reach the same remarkable milestones his mother did.
“He’s filling the shoes of the late Queen, and those are shoes that can never be filled by anyone,” Harrold said.
“Not unless you have a reign for that number of years, but I don’t think anyone will again in the history of the monarchy. The King will never reach those kinds of milestones.”
Despite that, Harrold says the King is doing “an amazing job” so far and is “winning over a lot of support” from the British public already.
“In his own way, he is doing an amazing job,” Harrold said. “People admire him and respect him as they should.”
He added: “In his own way, he is doing an amazing job,” Harrold said on behalf of Slingo. “People admire him and respect him as they should.”

In a prerecorded message, Charles paid tribute to his mother, recalling her “devoted service”.
He also said: “In marking the first anniversary of Her Late Majesty’s death and my accession, we recall with great affection her long life, devoted service, and all she meant to so many of us.
“I am deeply grateful, too, for the love and support that has been shown to my wife and myself during this year as we do our utmost to be of service to you all.”
The King spent the day with his wife Queen Camilla at Balmoral Castle in Scotland, where his mother died, and did not make any official public appearances.
