Prince Charles’ royal demands will make your head spin
Kinda makes Mariah Carey's demands seem pleasant.
When you're born into royalty, there's a certain level of pampering that just comes with being part of a noble family.
Unless you're Prince Charles.
Amazon Prime recently dug up a 2015 documentary titled Serving the Royals: Inside the Firm (via Cosmopolitan), which profiles around 1200 people who work for the British Royal Family, and apparently Prince Charles takes the whole 'getting waited on hand and foot by servants' thing to the next level.
According to the documentary, Charles basically gets "everything" done for him by servants, resulting in staff giving him the nickname "pampered prince".
Princess Diana's former butler, Paul Burrell, spills the tea in the doco and reveals that Prince Charles needs everything done in a certain way by his servants, right down to having "his valets squeeze one inch of toothpaste onto his toothbrush every morning."
“His pyjamas are pressed every morning, his shoe laces 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."
That's ranks pretty high on our pampering scale, but Burrell has another Charles story that takes the cake:
“On one occasion, he 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?’”
Now that's next level stuff right there, but hey, we're not from a royal family so maybe that kind of pampering is quite normal for royalty.
That being said, the paper in the bin story kinda makes Mariah Carey's demands and diva-ness seem almost pleasant.
