The Prince of Wales’s charity that has been accused of offering ‘cash for access’ is hiring a new compliance manager to ensure the proper use of its funds, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.

The Prince’s Foundation, based at Dumfries House in Ayrshire, is at the centre of an official probe over its fundraising activities, including claims Michael Fawcett, the Prince’s former aide and foundation chief executive, helped broker a knighthood and British citizenship for a billionaire Saudi donor.

Now the Prince’s embattled passion project has advertised for a new ‘compliance and internal audit manager’ with either legal or accountancy training.

They will ensure the charity meets all legal standards and develops policies on subjects including ‘anti-money laundering; conflicts; anti-bribery and corruption’.

The notice on its website points out this is ‘not an exhaustive list’ of responsibilities and adds the newly-created role will ‘improve our operations by bringing a systematic and disciplined approach to our risk management, control and compliance processes’.

A spokeswoman said the role would ‘support the growth of the foundation as it continues to deliver its impactful charitable activities’.
