King’s new appointment sends ‘clear sign’ that he ‘disagrees’ with Harry attacks

A new appointment made by King Charles appears to send a “clear sign” over how he feels towards one of Prince Harry’s recent attacks, according to royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams.

The monarch recently appointed Sir Edward Young, who acted as the late Queen’s Private Secretary and has been described as one of the Sussexes’s “biggest hate figures”, as a Permanent Lord in Waiting.

Speaking to, Mr Fitzwilliams said: “[This is] clearly a vote of confidence in the courtier who served the late Queen so loyally over so many years.”

Sir Edward Young, who is believed to be the man known as “The Bee” in Prince Harry’s memoir Spare, has been bestowed with the honour of representing the monarch at royal events when he is unable to attend in person.

The honour has also been deemed as “a reflection” of all of Lord Young’s work over the years.

Mr Fitzwilliams told “His promotion and the fact that he will continue to wield considerable influence at court is a clear signal that King Charles has total confidence in Lord Young.

“[It] is also a clear sign that he disagrees with the accusations which Harry unwisely made so publicly.”

Speaking of the new appointment, he added: “He was in charge of the planning of the Queen’s state visit to Ireland in 2011, which many regard as the highlight of her reign as well as the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

“When he retired, after briefly serving as Joint Private Secretary alongside Sir Clive Alderton in the early part of King Charles’s reign, he was given numerous honours including a peerage.

The expert continued: “Prince Harry detested him.

“In his memoir Spare, he excoriated him, reportedly giving him the nickname “The Bee” and accusing him and two other senior members of the Royal Household of fixing the terms of departure of the Sussexes from royal duties in advance of the Sandringham Summit.

“There were other accusations too. He followed the highly regarded Lord Geidt and some regarded him as too cautious.”

Sir Edward’s career spanned across 19 years, with many having speculated that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex blamed him for failing to accommodate them appropriately during their time together as working royals.

In his tell-all memoir, which was released back in January, Harry accused him of trying to stop him from meeting with his late grandmother to discuss the process of him and Meghan quitting their royal duties.

Harry also accused him of being the one that ensured Harry and Meghan lost their security deal with Scotland Yard after they moved to the US.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex made the decision to step down from royal duties in 2020.

The couple, along with their two children, now reside in California – a stark difference from their former life in The Firm.
