Prince Charles’s press secretary Sandy Henney, who resigned last week following a dispute over the copyright of some 18th birthday photographs of Prince William, is set to return to civil service press work.

Prince Charles’s press secretary Sandy Henney, who resigned last

week following a dispute over the copyright of some 18th birthday

photographs of Prince William, is set to return to civil service press

work.



Henney had served seven years at St James’s Palace after a career as a

press officer with the Government Information and Communication

Service.



She resigned after failing to secure for the palace rights to the

William pictures and having allegedly reneged on a deal with the Daily

Telegraph to release the shots ahead of the expected release date.



Although Henney resigned from Charles’s office, she did not resign from

the GICS. She will receive the regular GICS jobs bulletin and is free to

seek advice from the civil service development centre and GICS head of

profession Mike Grannatt.



’Henney remains within the professional group and is free to apply for

other jobs, which I hope she does,’ he said. Before joining Charles,

Henney worked for the GICS in the MoD, the CPS and the Met.



No successor has been announced by StJames’s Palace but deputy press

secretary Colleen Harris has taken over the running of the press office.
