Prince Charles has a fussy ‘half full’ bath time rule staff must follow

Like all members of the Royal family, Prince Charles has lived a privileged lifestyle complete with chefs and chauffeurs.

But the Prince of Wales, the oldest heir to the throne, has long been considered by experts to be rather demanding.

Charles, who is known as the “Pampered Prince”, has his quirks that his staff must adhere to – or they risk the wrath of the Queen’s eldest.

According to Paul Burrell, the 71-year-old has “absolutely everything” done for him.

And the Prince is especially fussy when it comes to bath time, according to a royal expert.

Speaking in Amazon documentary Serving the Royals: Inside the Firm, Burrell said Charles has his staff heavily involved in his bathing routine.

The Prince has “one inch of toothpaste” squeezed onto his toothbrush “every morning” and has his pyjamas and shoelaces pressed for creases.

Burrell noted that Prince Charles has very specific rules that must be closely followed before jumping in the tub.

He said: “His underwear is folded in a certain way and his bath towel has to be placed in a certain fashion.

“When it comes to bathing the bath plug has to be in a certain position, the water temperature has to be just tepid, and only half full."

And if things don’t go his way then the Prince won’t be best pleased, according to the insider.

But rather than banishing his servants to the Tower of London, Charles is known to “scold” them if they mess up his routine.

“And if anyone gets anything wrong everybody is scolded,” Burrell added.

The Prince of Wales might have picked up his fussy bath time preferences from his mum.

That’s because the Queen has her own strict bath time ritual, according to The Daily Mail.

She needs a bath that is “exactly the right temperature”, which is drawn by a maid whilst she nurses her morning cuppa.

The Monarch then needs her tub filled with “no more than seven inches of water”.

The position was even advertised for on a job site, according to the outlet.
