King Charles’ ‘radical overhaul’ sees key regime change following Queen’s death

King Charles III is said to be considering a series of changes in a "radical overhaul" to Windsor Castle as he looks to move on staff members, sources claim.

It is believed that a number of staff cuts are set to hit the castle as King Charles prepares a change in regime when compared to that of the late Queen.

Such a radical overhaul would affect the residencies of those working at the Berkshire-based castle, The Mirror reported, with some workers reportedly "extremely worried" about what lies ahead.

Palace insiders have claimed there are worries over the future for staff members, especially after a spate of Clarence House redundancies.

Said redundancies came about as King Charles moved his former official residence, with dozens of staff at Clarence House let go.

An insider claimed that many royal workers at Windsor Castle are "extremely worried about their futures" and added that some are ready to accept their fate and move on from their roles.

The source told the Mirror: "It's a really testing time. Many are already resigned to leaving jobs they have cherished for years. It’s left a real sense of dread among staff."

King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla are said to have stayed at Windsor Castle since the death of the Queen in September.

Despite being there for a a number of months, it is said to be "eerily quiet" inside the castle.

Former ladies in waiting for the late Queen, as well as a number of personal staff at the Royal Stud in Sandringham, Norfolk, are said to be at risk of redundancy according to the source.

Although the King agreed to sell 14 horses from the breeding ground, he has not publicly revealed future plans for the site.

Royal insiders are now wondering what the purpose of Windsor will be, and whether it will be moved as a castle for weekends, as the King already has homes in Balmoral, Highgrove, Gloucester and a cottage in Wales.
