With his promise to serve, King Charles III’s future reign is beginning to take shape, and his demands of those who work for him show that he is a very demanding taskmaster.
The New York Post highlighted that the “Serving the Royals: Inside the Firm” Amazon Prime video provided a glimpse inside the privileged world of royalty.
The Post reported that he is referred to as the “pampered prince” by the staff at Clarence House, where he has resided with Queen Consort Camilla since 2003, before the passing of Queen Elizabeth II.
According to butler Paul Burrell, who spoke about Charles in the documentary, “everything was done for him.”
In a bathtub that was “just half full,” Burrell added, “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.”
Even more, “has his valets squeeze one inch of toothpaste onto his toothbrush every morning.”
2019’s Express considered Burrell’s latest anecdote to be worth sharing.
“On one occasion, he [Charles] rang me from his library and he said, ‘Oh Paul, a letter from the Queen seems to have fallen into my wastepaper bin. Would you pick it out?’” said Burrell.
Breakfast did not change, according to chef Graham Newbould, a former member of the royal crew, The Post said.
“Prince Charles has a healthier option. He’d have homemade bread, a bowl of fresh fruit, fresh fruit juices,” according to Newbould.
“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 Newbould.
The future king’s peculiar eating habits were covered in an article on the website My London in April.
The website said that Charles is particular about the details of his biscuits, citing an unknown “royal source.”
“Prince Charles enjoys cheese and biscuits at the end of many of his meals. Since he’s particular about everything, he insists that they be a certain temperature. The staff keeps a warming pan just to make sure they are hot enough for his liking,” according to the website.

A book by Tina Brown called “The Palace Papers,” gave more inside information on the royal family, according to Page Six.
The book said former aide Michael Fawcett, would oversee the “paraphernalia that preceded his boss like the baggage train of a Tudor traveling court including the Prince’s orthopedic bed, lavatory seat, and Kleenex Velvet lavatory paper, plus two landscapes of the Scottish landscapes.” CONTINUE READING…
