In a revelation that sounds like it was plucked from the plot of a historical drama, the Mail on Sunday has uncovered a startling breach of protocol within King Charles III's inner circle. The controversy centers around Garter King of Arms, David White, who reportedly sidestepped established procedures to favor his chosen candidate for a high-ranking position.

At the same time, the King recuperated in London from cancer treatment. According to sources, this maneuver occurred when the royal staff were instructed to ensure the King was not disturbed. The dubious appointment, which is now being rescinded, has drawn comparisons to the secretive machinations of a medieval court, with insiders alleging that White exploited the King’s vulnerability post-treatment to advance his agenda.

It was claimed that White managed to present his recommendation to King Charles by indirectly delivering it through a confidant’s spouse. When approached for comments, White refrained from discussing the incident, though the *Mail* suggests he inadvertently made damning remarks after mistakenly believing he had ended a call.

Buckingham Palace has opted not to comment on this unfolding scandal.

Fractured Royal Ties: The Van Straubenzee Memorial Fund

In another part of the royal realm, the Henry van Straubenzee Memorial Fund, a cherished initiative of Prince William and Prince Harry, is being concluded after over two decades.

This decision was disclosed by The Sunday Times, which noted that the charity had been a significant connection between the estranged brothers. The fund was established in memory of Henry van Straubenzee, a close friend who tragically died in a car accident at 18.

Despite the personal rifts, the brothers recently collaborated on a joint tribute marking the 20th anniversary of Henry’s death, commemorating their collective efforts in building schools in Uganda.

Royal Spotlights: Polo Glamour and Commemorative Messages

In a lighter royal engagement, Prince Harry was seen receiving a prize cup from his wife, Meghan Markle, at a Florida polo event.

This intimate moment was captured while Netflix cameras rolled, hinting at upcoming content centered around polo. Meanwhile, Prince William and Kate Middleton extended their condolences following a tragic event in Sydney, affirming their solidarity with the victims and praising the bravery of first responders.

Personal Strains and Honorary Titles within the Royal Family

In personal news, Peter Phillips, son of Princess Anne, has unexpectedly ended his relationship with Lindsay Wallace. Insiders assert that no third party was involved and that the split was amicable.

On a formal note, Prince Edward has been honored with the title of Colonel of the Scots Guards, taking over from the Duke of Kent, who held the position since 1974. In accepting this role, Edward expressed both honor and humility, acknowledging the significant legacy of his predecessor.
