Kate Middleton & Prince William's Kensington Palace Staff Threaten to Strike

Staff members at Kensington Palace, where Kate Middleton and Prince William reside in London, are threatening to go on strike due to a proposed pay cut that would leave workers with thousands less per year.

The workers who would be largely effected are those who work in ticket offices or show visitors around the grounds. This all stems from the fact that they were asked to take reduced hours, which would thus cut their wages.

“The changes to working hours affect a small number of colleagues in the front-of-house team at Kensington Palace. We have given a year’s notice of the planned changes and are currently in discussions with the PCS union. We value our staff very highly and hope to reach a mutually satisfactory agreement,” a spokesperson for Historic Royal Palaces told Metro UK.

    If they had a year’s notice that this was going to happen, then they had plenty of time to find suitable employment elsewhere, no?

    Rotten thing to reduce staff hours, when the royals live like billionaires.

    “Affected.”

    It is possible to use “effect” as a verb, but it is in the sense of “to make something happen.” The people who have something happen to them as a result of the “effect” are “affected” by it.
