Kate Middleton in the scandal: the head of her charity has a criminal past

Nono one had noticed.

How did Paul Carberry roll over the so-called employee screening, a detailed examination that goes beyond the simple CV? The British media are asking, specifying that everyone should expect it, from those applying to become valets, chefs or cleaners to the personal secretaries of the Royals and the most important positions associated with the Windsors.

Princess Kate was in the dark about it

Carberry, who is now 60 and receives an annual salary of over 170,000 euros for his position as general manager, quickly explained that he regretted his actions and caused pain to the families of his victims.

Those responsible for Action for Children instead they explained that they had always known about Carberry’s criminal past and informed about it Buckingham Palace even before the settlement. The man, they say, never hid his crime. He has been working for 30 years with the charity and also holds a role within the task force set up to prevent the involvement of young people in organized crime.
