Buckingham Palace plays down 'power struggle' claims - BBC News

The BBC are now carrying the story and IMO the most interesting thing is even they say "The BBC understands Sir Christopher - the Queen's most senior and trusted advisor - did not step down willingly."and "The BBC's royal correspondent Peter Hunt has spoken to several people, inside and outside the ancient institution, who have confirmed this decision was not taken willingly by Sir Christopher." The BBC has the strictest rules about sources and their accuracy so IMO this is pretty much confirmation he was sacked.
