The King has a brutal way to deal with his staff's work

King Charles has a brutal method when preparing his speeches, according to a royal commentator, as he "throws away" his staff's work.

Angela Levin, who has written several books on the Royal Family, revealed to GB News that the monarch has speechwriters but "redoes" the speeches to his liking.

When discussing the King's speech from last night at Mansion House, Levin told Patrick Christys: "He was very sensitive.

"I do know that he has people that write his speech, but he then throws it away and redoes it himself."

Christys joked that must be "soul-destroying" for King Charles's staff.

However, Levin defended Charles, saying: "No no, they're used to it, and they get paid anyway!

"They set [the speech] in action.

"But this way, there's part of his heart and feelings [in the speech].

"You can tell from this he's still very much missing his mother because he goes back to her."

In King Charles's speech last night, he said: "Since my Accession last year, and in preparation for our Coronation earlier this year, I have taken the opportunity to reflect on what it is that makes this nation of ours so special – for every generation lives with its own set of hopes and fears, as if caught in a perpetual tussle between optimism and pessimism, promise and peril.

"I have often described the United Kingdom as a 'community of communities'; an island nation in which our shared values are the force which holds us together, reminding us that there is far, far more that unites us than divides us.

"Yet we are living in something of a watershed age.

"For example, will the coming of artificial intelligence bring with it an era of ever increasing material plenty and leisure?

"Or will it fundamentally change and perhaps even consume jobs and other opportunities before capturing and then surpassing our very minds themselves?

"After decades of debate, our television screens - or, increasingly, mobile phone screens - confront us each day with the stark realities of climate change.

"But are devastating scenes of communities scarred by fire and flood – not to mention the migration of people fleeing those terrifying phenomena – enough to persuade us to take the action that is needed; to make the sacrifices needed to secure our planet for generations yet unborn?"
