Prince Charles branded ‘most pampered prince’ as fans discover bizarre wardrobe demands

941

PRINCE CHARLES has been labelled the most “pampered prince” by his royal staff due to his outrageous demands.

Prince Charles has very specific orders for his butlers and royal staff over what he wears. He reportedly has to have his shoelaces ironed and his pyjamas pressed every morning. The future king also makes his staff hand wash every piece of clothing he and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, wear according to a royal book. In his book, Not in Front of the Corgis: Secrets of Life Behind the Royal Curtains, royal biographer Brian Hoey wrote about Prince Charles’ outrageous demands. He said the prince has never picked up his own clothes or undressed himself. Mr Hoey explains that Prince Charles has three valets who take care of his clothes for him.

Prince Charles likes to wear the tie of the military or organisation he is visiting. Mr Hoey wrote that Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall’s clothes can never touch a washing machine. Royal correspondent, Clive Goodman, claimed the Prince of Wales does nothing for himself.

He said: “The Prince of Wales, he doesn’t lift a thing. “He gets up in the morning, his bathrobe is there waiting for him; he walks into the bathroom, the bath is drawn for him already. “Even when he gets out of the bath, the towel is folded in a special way so he just has to sit in it and wrap it around himself.

Speaking on a documentary, he said: “His underwear is folded in a certain way and his bath towel has to be placed in a certain fashion. “When it comes to bathing, the bath plug has to be in a certain position, the water temperature has to be just tepid, and only half full. “And if anyone gets anything wrong everybody is scolded.”

He said: “Charles has his valets squeeze one inch of toothpaste onto his toothbrush every morning.” Prince Charles is first in line to take the throne followed by his son Prince William who is second.
