Historic Royal Palaces, is
to take over the role in February 2009.
O’Neill, a judge in this year’s Accountancy Age Awards, will take on

comprising the Tower of London, Hampton Court, Banqueting House, Kensington
Palace and Kew Palace – turns over approximately £50m.
The move marks a return to O’Neill’s theatrical roots after a previous role
at the National Theatre. She has also worked for Channel 4, Granada, and the
shopping channel QVC.
