Grim news that the Historic Royal Palaces (HRP) are putting 145 roles at risk of redundancy. This is in light of a projected loss of £100m of income for 2020, which equates to around a 89% loss due to the closure of sites. No details have been given yet outlining how much they hope to save with these redundancies and restructuring.

AHN had reported in July on the very public appeal the charity had made for help. It is interesting to note some of the continued threads in public reaction to this news. Despite the HRP asserting itself as an independent charity detached from the Crown, it is clear that there are large swathes who do not readily accept this differentiation.
