Fraud and misconduct - reasons why Royal Palace staff have been fired

Whilst working for the royals is undoubtedly a high-stress, high-reward life choice, you may imagine that successful candidates would remain on their best behaviour when serving the heirs to the throne. Yet reports from the Daily Mail claim that since 2015, 27 employees from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's home of Kensington Palace have been fired for various counts of misconduct.

Of the 27 sacked employees, two were reportedly dismissed for harassment, whilst one lost their job due to a case of fraud. Five more were let go over their attendance, whilst eight were fired for ‘failing to follow procedure’.
