Apparently, being famous gives you the right to have certain demands, as the stars who have improbable whims and the unbearable actors on set have shown. And that, Charles III of England understood it well while growing up, because as told by former staff members in the Amazon documentary Serving The Royals : Inside The Firm and in different books on the royal family, the new king has always had quite high demands. And it hasn’t worked out since he’s been on the throne, oddly enough.
1. That his pajamas are washed and ironed every morning
I can’t say how many pajamas there are in Charles III’s closet, but it must be quite a lot for him to change every 24 hours. On the other hand, my brave Charles, didn’t you hear that it was the end of abundance in fact?? Do you think everyone can afford to make machines like this every day??
2. That his shoelaces are ironed before he puts on his shoes
I… Well, I… Really… Not the words. Why ? Why ???
3. Put two centimeters of toothpaste on your toothbrush
Not 1.9. Not 2.1. Not 12. But 2 cm. Guess there’s a guy hired to measure the length of the toothpaste put on the king’s snag brush. Finally, we can easily achieve full employment if we all get together. I only like chlorophyll toothpaste.
4. That his bathtub is half filled with just lukewarm water and the drain in a defined position
For the half-filled bath and the water just lukewarm, we can understand, it’s never pleasant to drown your tiles because you’ve overfilled your bath, all that only to come out two minutes later because the water is ultimately way too hot. But for the plug, there frankly, we do not see. Maybe a trauma with 007, otherwise no idea (do you have it??).
5. That we carry some of his furniture when he goes on vacation
When Charles III of England visits people (like his distant cousins), he always brings with him certain objects in his possession such as his bed, photos to decorate and other furniture from his little home. The guy moves every ten minutes.
6. That you carry your toilet seat and your favorite PQ when you’re on the go
I don’t think I’m going too far in saying that in terms of hygiene, good old Charles is a bit psycho-rigid. Always when he leaves on the move, Charles III asks that we take his toilet glasses so as not to have to sit on someone else’s glasses. Worse still, he also asks to always have his favorite PQ with him, the Kleenex Velvet. We understand the idea, but frankly, grandma shouldn’t be pushed into corgis.
7. That his breakfast box with a complete formula follows him everywhere
Our little prince, finally king now, is not the type to get up at 9:30 in the morning to buy his Trésors de Kellogs at the local Super U. Nah, no, he has to have his breakfast ready from home when he arrives, with his homemade roll, his little bowl of fresh fruit, and his little squeezed fruit juice. And if he goes on vacation, he absolutely must have his breakfast box, containing six different types of honey, a special muesli and dried fruit. It’s okay, he doesn’t want the creamer’s butter too?
8. That his cheese and cookies are warmed to a certain temperature
Charles is a bit like this 7-month-old baby who only wants to eat what he wants, in the form and at the temperature he wants. This is why, at the end of his meal, he must always have a warming trolley close at hand on which his cheese and biscuits, which have been reheated beforehand, are placed. No but oh, he doesn’t want us to pre-chew his salad either?
9. That her eggs are cooked in less than three minutes
To avoid being tricked, the king’s cook prepares six for him every morning so that he is spoiled for choice. No, but he thought he was the Queen of England Charles or what??
10. That his office is always polished
Yes, as he showed on September 10, 2022 during his accession to the throne, Charlou does not really like when his office is cluttered.
11. May ink pens be eradicated from the planet forever
Like his little mum who wanted her newspaper to be ironed every morning so as not to get her hands dirty with ink, Charles III did not like having stained mimines either. In any case, this is what he made clear to everyone when signing a guestbook in Belfast during his visit to Northern Ireland. Ouinnnnn, I have black on the maiiiiins.
