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
Henney had served seven years at St James’s Palace after a career as a
press officer with the Government Information and Communication
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.
