Although he was officially proclaimed king on Saturday at a meeting of the Accession Council in London, Charles III lived like a monarch all his life. Nicknamed the “pampered prince” by the staff of his royal residence Clarence House, the successor of Elizabeth II did not wait to wear the crown to have certain requirements, such as those revealed in the 2015 documentary ” Serving the Royals: Inside the Firm “, visible on Prime Video (but not in Belgium).

From ironing his laces to the toothpaste already applied to his toothbrush every morning… Paul Burrell, the former butler of Queen Elizabeth and Princess Diana, thus revealed the directives given to the staff of the former Prince of Wales.

His pajamas are ironed every morning, his shoelaces are ironed flat with an iron, the tub stopper should be in a certain position, and the water temperature should be just lukewarm “in a full bathtub” only half said Burrell. ” He even asks his valets to squeeze an inch of toothpaste onto his toothbrush every morning. »

For breakfast : ” He takes homemade bread, a bowl of fresh fruit, fresh juice “explains chef Graham Newbould, a former member of the royal staff. ” Wherever the prince goes in the world, the breakfast box goes with him. It has six different types of honey, special mueslis, its dried fruits… »

Charles III would also like his cheese and biscuits to be reheated to a certain temperature at the end of meals, and would ask his staff to always have a warming tray nearby, a source told MyLondon newspaper.

A special guest

Wherever he goes, the new King of England would also carry his own “toilet seat” and “Kleenex Velvet toilet paper”.

And when he visits friends, he would usually bring his bed, his furniture and even his photos “, reports journalist Tina Brown in her book “The Palace Papers: Inside the House of Windsor–the Truth and the Turmoil Hardcover”, published in April 2022. All of this would be sent even before his own departure, so that everything is installed on arrival.
