Grant Harrold, who worked for the king for seven years when he was Prince of Wales, said the king would never reach the milestones achieved by his late mother during her 70-year reign.

“He’s done a great job in his own way,” Harrold said on behalf of Slingo. “People admire him and respect him, as they should.”
“He has won a lot of support. I can see people are happy with what he is doing as the new king,” he added.
