I don’t know about you but I have never once looked at my shoelaces and thought ‘hmm, better have a servant flatten them with an iron’.
Probably because 1. I don’t have servants and 2. Who the heck looks that closely at their shoelaces?
Well. Prince Charles does.
Okay. It seems the Prince of Wales – known as the “pampered prince” by palace staff – is uh, a major diva.
In an Amazon Prime documentary called Serving the Royals: Inside the Firm, Princess Diana’s former butler Paul Burrell spilled some of the odd demands 69-year-old Charles makes of royal staff.
“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,” Burrell said.
Charles even “has his valets squeeze one inch of toothpaste onto his toothbrush every morning.”
What the heck.
