King Charles III forced Queen Elizabeth II’s most trusted aide to move out of the his family’s estate following his mother’s death
Angela Kelly believed she would be allowed to reside in a cottage in Windsor Home Park after her longtime pal passed away.
However, the Queen’s former personal assistant and close friend does not live in on the property per Charles’ instructions, the book alleges.
Kelly, 65, first began working for the Queen in 1994 as her dresser.
Over time, however, her role expanded.
“During the late Queen’s last years, there was no one outside her immediate family who was closer to her than Angela Kelly.”
“Her official title was Personal Assistant, Adviser and Curator to Her Majesty the Queen … but she was also her confidante, her friend and the person who looked after her more than anyone else; as Kelly would tell friends, she was effectively the Queen’s carer.”
When Elizabeth was still alive, Kelly had a room on the same floor as the Queen’s private apartments.
Longtime staff members who work for the royal family are commonly gifted homes to live in the royal estate, a practice called “grace-and-favour” homes.
However, days after the Queen died, it became clear that Kelly — despite her loyalty to Her Royal Highness — would not be the recipient of this perk.
“Negotiations ensued in which it was suggested that the King would buy her a home near Sheffield, [England], to be near her grandchildren.”
“Angela wasn’t everybody’s cup of tea, but nevertheless the King had no wish to see her homeless,” a source said, “I get the impression that the King just didn’t want to be living next door to her.”
