King Charles hires law professor as he prepares to wield axe to monarchy

King Charles III has reportedly hired a law professor as part of his new team to streamline the Royal Family.

Charles is said to have hired Dr John Sorabji, a law lecturer at University College London (UCL) and former barrister at Nine St John Chambers, who is reported to be playing a supporting role to the King's private secretary, Sir Clive Alderton, the Daily Mirror reports.

According to one source, Dr Sorabji was a "super smart" man and would become a key aspect in "building and strengthening" the King's court.

Sources previously claimed that Charles has been preparing for his reign as King for a while now and has taken aim at slimming down the monarchy as a key project.

While Charles is focused on his shake-up of the Royal Family, Queen Consort Camilla has plans of her own.

A couple of the ladies-in-waiting were to retire following the death of Queen Elizabeth, as they are in their 80s as its predicted that Camilla will get rid of the role of ladies-in-waiting completely.

Camilla will look to do away with the long-standing tradition as she aims to modernise the monarchy.

Marlene Koenig, a historian who has studied the Royal Family for several years, said: "There are some positions that may no longer be filled.

"You wonder if the women, especially Queen Camilla, will use ladies-in-waiting as the Queen did. She's never had, even as the Duchess of Cornwall, an official lady-in-waiting."

Historically, ladies-in-waiting committed to serve the Queen for her lifetime and were not paid and unable to quit or retire from the role.

During Queen Elizabeth's tenure, she appointed nine ladies-in-waiting from 1953 to 2017, who were mostly "women from aristocratic families".

The Daily Star has contacted Buckingham Palace for comment.
