A leading civil service trade union has written to the head of staff of King Charles’s former household asking him to halt planned redundancies.

Up to 100 employees fear they could lose their jobs at Clarence House.

The Public and Commercial Services union (PCS) has sent a letter to Principal Private Secretary Sir Clive Alderton, asking him to stop the plans and meet with the union ahead of any future consultation.

PCS general secretary Mark Serwotka said: “To issue a notice of redundancy during the period of mourning is shocking and insensitive.

“We call on Sir Clive to think again, to withdraw his letter and engage with us on any future staffing plans.”
