Seven Kensington Palace employees were fired or resigned for wrongdoing.

The workers helped maintain the palace, where Prince William and his wife Kate live, for the charity that manages royal palaces for the government.

Records show that they are among 27 Historic Royal Palaces (HRP) employees who have been fired or left under a cloud since 2015.

Two of the 27 were dismissed for harassment last year, while another lost his job four years ago for fraud.

Five other people were released for participating, while eight were released for "non-compliance with the procedure".

Another was rejected for "non-compliance with the performance framework".

Three of the 17 HRP employees fired since 2015 worked at Kensington Palace, which houses up to 15 high-ranking kings, including Prince William (36), wife Kate (37) and their three children.

Prince Harry, 34, and wife Meghan, 37, lived in the palace's Nottingham Cottage, but moved out before the birth of their son this month.

Others who have been fired from HRP are seven employees from the Tower of London, five from Hampton Court and two from Hillsborough Castle.

Another ten HRP employees resigned in disciplinary cases. Two left during the harassment investigations, including one last year, while another that was investigated for theft also stopped last year.

In 2017, an HRP employee resigned for fraud and in 2015 for fraud. Four of the ten resigned employees worked at Kensington Palace and four others at Hampton Court.

The other two who quit worked at the Tower of London and Hillsborough Castle in Northern Ireland.

HRP was founded by the government in 1989 to serve five royal palaces, but later became an independent charity.

It took over the management of a sixth palace, Hillsborough Castle, in 2014. The disciplinary figures published following a request for freedom of information show that at least 98 disciplinary sanctions have been imposed on HRP employees since 2015.

A charity spokeswoman said: “Together with all responsible employers, we have a performance framework and code of conduct that guide our employees to provide our visitors with the highest possible level of service.

& # 39; As an organization with over 1,000 employees, we occasionally need to initiate disciplinary procedures if these standards are not met.

& # 39; This is always an unfortunate but fortunately rare event. We are proud to be Gold Investors in People. & # 39;
