King Charles relocates Queen’s closest aide from Windsor Castle
According to Women and Home Magazine, Angela has lived on the grounds of Windsor Castle since 2021. In May 2022, she was moved to a suite next door to the late Queen at the Berkshire estate. The Royal dresser continues to stay there for a few months after the Queen’s death.
However, King Charles has now planned to move her away from Berkshire, and consequently, away from the Royal Family’s secrets. Reportedly, King Charles has struck a deal with Angela to keep out of Royal Family and its business.
Why is Angela Kelly moved from Windsor Castle?
The information obtained by MailOnline states that Angela’s move is orchestrated to keep her away from spilling Royal secrets. It is understood that the monarch felt Angela’s updated version of The Other side of the coin, strayed ‘too far’ into revealing intimate details about the Royal Family.
As such, it is reported that King has bought Angela’s silence in exchange for a new life for her up in the North. The publication stated:
The King has struck a deal with the late Queen's dresser banning her from sharing Royal secrets in exchange for a new life in the North.
The Mail on Sunday understands that a senior Palace aide acting for the King presented Ms Kelly with a new NDA – nondisclosure agreement – to sign as part of the deal.
The gagging order restricts Angela to write any more books about the Royal Family and also prohibits her to use the words 'King' and 'Palace' for commercial purposes.
