King Charles to make incredible gesture amid cost-of-living crisis

In the latest King Charles news, the monarch will reportedly give hundreds of royal staff a one-off bonus to help with bills amid the cost-of-living crisis.

What’s more, it’s claimed the bonus will come “out of his own pocket”.

It comes as Brits struggle to afford both food and heating as prices escalate.

It is claimed that King Chalres has already told hundreds of staff that they will get up to £600 in a one-off bonus.

This will include cleaners, servants and footmen that work at royal residences such as Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle and Balmoral.

Figures released over the summer suggest that there are around 491 full-time staff members working within these residences.

Over the summer, King Charles, then Prince of Wales, held talks with Money Saving Expert Martin Lewis to discuss how people would be hit by the rising living costs and the current recession.

An insider claimed to The Sun that the money from the King will be “given on a sliding scale with those most in need and on lower wages getting more money”.
