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.
