The only difference I can between the Fergie scandal and this is that Charles isn't personally benefitting from it, a charity is. While Fergie was going to pocket £500,000 herself for access.
True, but the cash was still going to one of his projects, and a UK state honour was still effectively being put up for sale if enough cash was handed over.
It's grubby. If it weren't, Fawcett would not have stepped down. And no doubt it's temporary as Charles will still find a way to bring him back in some fashion. For a fourth time!
What is it about Fawcett that Charles likes so much? The guy is a mess with one scandal after another. Charles needs to let him go a walk far away.
or possibly "what is that MF knows about Charles?" - keep your friends close and your enemies even closer
what were the other times, I don't know the otheer times. can someone tell me them pls
Bullying and dodgy financial dealings : (from the Daily Fail)
In the years of the royal separation Fawcett's influence grew. By now increasingly overbearing, Fawcett who had been promoted from valet to personal assistant was the subject of a complaint from other servants.
He resigned only to be reinstated after Camilla intervened.
Five years later he stepped down again after an internal inquiry found he had broken regulations by accepting and selling gifts that Charles did not want. Crucially, the investigation cleared him of any financial wrongdoing.
In resigning Fawcett took the heat from Charles, a move that endeared him even more to the prince.
Charles rewarded him with a £500,000 payoff and the unswerving loyalty that exists to this day. Fawcett set up Premier Mode, an events company with the prince as number one client, organising all his social gatherings, including the wedding party when Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall married in 2005.
Thx LL and everyone.
