Close confidant of Prince Charles resigned

A confidant of Prince Charles, 72, has resigned from his position as head of the Foundation for the heir to the throne following allegations of corruption. This was confirmed by a spokesman for the Prince Foundation on Friday. Michael Fawcett, 59, has left his post since the allegations became public in September. A Clarence House spokesman said the prince’s residence would also not work with event organizers, Fossett.

In exchange for the donations, the former servant of the Queen’s eldest son was said to have agreed to support a Saudi businessman in his desire to receive an order and British citizenship. The Mail on Sunday published an alleged 2017 letter from Fawcett. Clarence House stressed that Prince Charles was not aware of the events and fully supported the investigation.

Fawcett has been in the service of the palace since 1981. In 2003, he was acquitted of allegations that he had put a stake in his own pocket when selling royal gifts. However, he resigned because the investigation report criticized his behavior in the palace. In 2018, he was appointed Managing Director of The Prince Foundation.
