King Charles' private secretaries, finance office, communications team, and home workers have received the notices so far, the Guardian reported.

King Charles' new role necessitates these changes, Sir Clive Alderton, the King’s private secretary said in a letter to the staffers. Many positions in the Clarence House- that will be closed- would no longer be required, Alderton added.
