The Marquess of Cholmondeley, a close friend of Prince William, has lost her job as Lord Great Chamberlain after King Charles III became monarch after the Queen’s death.
The Marquess, also known as filmmaker David Rocksavage, had a role in which he had to walk backwards in front of the monarch at the State Opening of Parliament, as long as the Queen was on the throne.
A friend of his told the Granthshala, ‘David always knew he would never have a job for the rest of his life. ‘By the time they did, it was an honor to complete it.’
Now Charles has become monarch, the task will be taken over by the 7th Lord Carrington, whose late father had served as foreign secretary under Margaret Thatcher.

David and his wife, former model Rose Hanbury, now Marchionnese of Cholmondeley, live near Anmer Hall in Sandringham, Norfolk, the country home of Prince William and Catherine.
Rose, 38, married Rocksavage in 2009. He is 24 years older than her and friends had almost given up hope that he would ever get married.
Rose soon produced a successor and addition in the form of twins Alexander and Oliver. Like Catherine, she has since given birth to a third child, Iris.
