The Prince of Wales has appointed a new communications secretary, Sally Osman, to be in charge of public relations for the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall.
“I am delighted to welcome Sally Osman to the team here at Clarence House. She is a very accomplished communications professional who will serve The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall very well. Sally has a formidable record of achievement in the public and private sector, and an enviable reputation for straightforwardness and integrity. We very much look forward to working with her,” the Prince’s principle private secretary said today.
Ms Osman, who begins her job in June of this year said, “It is a great honour to be appointed to this role and a big responsibility. I hope my communications experience can help support Their Royal Highnesses in the extensive work they do and commitment they give to so many important issues, organisations and individuals. I very much look forward to joining the office at Clarence House.”
Ms Osman currently works for Sony as Director of Corporate Communications. She has also worked at the BBC, around the time of the ‘Queengate’ incident. The Queengate incident happened when the BBC broadcast a preview of a documentary entitled ‘A Year With The Queen’ in which they showed The Queen supposedly walking out of a photo shoot with American artist Annie Leibovitz in horror, when in fact she was just going in.
Sally Osman was also a consultant for the China Media Centre at the University of Westminster and for the brand agency Make Believe.
