Political commentator Owen Jones hit out at Prince Charles’s for his reported “weird” behaviour of having his personal valet put toothpaste on his toothbrush every morning. The outburst followed broadcaster Jeremy Vine bringing up the anecdote as he discussed the Royal Family with his panellists. Mr Vine said: “I know famously Prince Charles in the morning likes his toothbrush to be pre-loaded.”
The anecdote had Owen Jones laughing before he said: “What’s wrong with that family?”
He then jokingly asked: “Am I gonna get decapitated in the Tower of London?
“That is weird behavior.”
A former royal aide last year shared details about the behind-the-scene lives of members of the Royal Family, including about Prince Charles’ preferences for his morning routine.
The insider claimed: “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.
“He has his valets squeeze one inch of toothpaste onto his toothbrush every morning.”
Prince Charles is also reported to be very mindful of his own breakfast, with the royal making sure to include a hamper of his favourite foods whenever he travels.
Former royal chef Darren McGrady said: “Whenever the Prince of Wales came to stay with the Queen, he would always arrive with a hamper of his own produce.
“In the kitchen, we’d have jars of bottled plums from the Highgrove garden.”
The former chef also claimed Charles made sure kitchen staff would follow strict rules on what to serve to him for breakfast and how.
He continued: “The instruction was to put two plums and a little juice into the bowl and send it into him for breakfast.
“I’d send in two plums and he would take one so it would come back out after breakfast and I’d put the other plum back into the jar and save it.
“One morning I thought, ‘ok, he only eats one for breakfast,’ so I only put one plum into the bowl and sent it out into the dining room.
“The attending came through and said, ‘can His Royal Highness have two please?’ So I had to keep sending two in every morning.”
Some of the habits Royal Family members have developed are tightly linked with security measures devised to protect them when they are travelling.
Telegraph reporter Gordon Rayner said in 2017: “Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall (Camilla Parker-Bowles) sometimes take their own alcohol so there’s no danger of their drinks being spiked.
“Their police bodyguard will discreetly carry a bag of their drinks —gin and tonic for him and red wine for her.”
