According to Fox Business, a total of 15 of the UK staffers who served their office in Buckingham Palace were let go. But, it was reportedly expected as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex broke the news to their employees last month following their Megxit. However, it was said that two of their axed staffers may find their way back into the royal house, but most are currently negotiating their severance packages.

Buckingham Palace has not released a statement on this matter but a close source told The Daily Mail,

“Given their decision to step back, an office at Buckingham Palace is no longer needed,” a source told The Mail. “While the details are still being finalized and efforts are being made to redeploy people within the royal household, unfortunately, there will be some redundancies [firings].”

The source went on to say,

“The Duke and Duchess have a small team, less than 15 people. The team are very loyal to the Sussexes and understand and respect the decision they have taken,” the source said. “They are all close and supporting each other. The team are busy helping to set their Royal Highnesses up for the future and working on a series of final engagements.”
