The servants at Clarence House, where King Charles resided with his wife Queen Consort Camilla from 2003 until he just ascended to the throne, reportedly referred to him as the “pampered prince.”
In the 2015 Amazon Prime documentary “Serving the Royals: Inside the Firm,” specifics of the former Prince of Wales’ extravagant requests were made public.
Paul Burrell, a butler to Queen Elizabeth and Princess Diana, disclosed the specific instructions provided to the king’s attendants for taking care of him, including how to put toothpaste on his toothbrush and iron his shoelaces.
The former butler shared that King Charles had “everything done for him.”
“His pajamas are pressed every morning, his shoelaces are pressed flat with an iron, the bath plug has to be in a certain position, and the water temperature has to be just tepid,” in a bath tub filled “only half full,” Burrell said
Prince Charles has a healthier option. He’d have homemade bread, a bowl of fresh fruit, fresh fruit juices,” chef Graham Newbould, a former member of the royal staff said.
“Wherever the prince goes in the world, the breakfast box goes with him. He has six different types of honey, some special mueslis, his dried fruit and anything that’s a bit special that he is a bit fussy about.”
According to New York Post,;
He also supposedly insists his cheese and biscuits be warmed at a certain temperature at the end of meals and makes his staff keep a warming tray nearby “since he’s particular about everything,” a royal insider told MyLondon.
Along with his breakfast box, King Charles allegedly sends a van of his possessions to his friends’ country houses ahead of his arrival to unload his “bed, furniture and even pictures,” Tina Brown reported in “The Palace Papers.”
He reportedly even brings his own toilet seat and Kleenex Velvet toilet paper wherever he goes.
