King Charles III seems to have some problems with the British Guard. This week, he made a rather intriguing request.
The life of a castle is sometimes not simple. King Charles III, who is currently preparing for his coronation, has a lot to deal with. While his first trip will be to France and could have repercussions on French political life, being the king of Great Britain doesn’t seem to be so easy. Father of William and Kate, the son of Queen Elizabeth II must deal with his fears about the couple and the potential arrival of the couple formed by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Thus, King Charles III needs to do everything possible to be focused to the maximum.
Perhaps this is why the King made a special request to the British Guard. The changing of the guard is a ceremony that takes place outside Buckingham Palace and St James’ Palace, not far from Clarence House, the residence of King Charles III and Queen Consort Camilla. According to The Sun, the office of the sovereign’s equerry sent out a leaked note: “Her Majesty remarked the other day how loud the outgoing sentries were at St James’ Palace in the morning. Bravo for vigor and volume, but please could you let the guards know that Clarence House is a residence and that some control of volume would be much appreciated by those there!”
Turning down the volume
So, King Charles III wants the volume of the troops to be lowered a bit, but only in the morning. Indeed, this request is justified by the fact that His Majesty works every morning at Clarence House before going to Buckingham Palace to manage the affairs of state. According to The Sun, this is a benevolent request and not a complaint about the behavior of the guards. The volume of the changing of the guard should therefore be reduced and King Charles III could work in better conditions to concentrate.
