King Charles III’s charity will face no further police action over honors scandal

Police Force said on Monday they would no longer work following an investigation into bribery linked to one of King Charles III's charities.

In February last year, the Metropolitan Police launched an investigation into the Prince's Foundation after media reports it was "providing aid to earn the respect of Saudi citizens".

A Sunday Times investigation published in 2021 claimed the charity's then-head Michael Fawcett helped Saudi businessman Mahfouz Marei Mubarak bin Mahfouz become an honorary Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (CBE).

The Army said on Monday that "after careful consideration of the information it has received from the investigation to date, the Met has decided not to take further action on this matter." The

Army added that it interviewed two people during the investigation and analyzed More than 200 documents. No arrests or charges were made in the investigation.

A Buckingham Palace spokesman said they would consider the Met's request and "any further inquiries relating to the Prince's Foundation".

A spokesman for the Prince's Foundation said they were also aware of the police decision and following an independent investigation and legal review last year, "the charity is moving forward to focus on delivering tailored Education and training."

When the King arrived at Balmoral on Monday, news came that the police investigation had concluded. Traditionally, when the king returns home to Scotland in the summer, a small party is held outside the palace gates. King Charles visits the guard of honor formed by the Balaclava Company, 5th Battalion, Royal Scottish Regiment.

4 SCOTS Pipes and Drums performed at the event, which was also attended by Royal Party Mascot Shetland Pony Corporal Cruachan IV.

The King was recently announced to succeed his late mother, Queen Elizabeth II, as Colonel-General of the Royal Legion of Scotland.
