King Charles does not travel without a teddy bear or a toilet seat: the royal author

King Charles always travels with a trusted companion and a suitable throne for a king, according to a royal author.

The King is known to have an outrageous list of demands, but it was recently revealed that he “doesn’t like square ice cubes” and, like any 5-year-old, Charles travels with his childhood teddy bear.

Christopher Andersen, author of The King: The Life of Charles III, said the cuddly bear has been by Charles’ side since he was “a very young child.” He was even guarded by one of Charles’ most trusted butlers, Michael Fawcett, who was responsible for looking after the cuddly bear into the king’s adulthood, Andersen told Entertainment Tonight.

The writer added that whenever the game needed repair, a certain nanny made the necessary repairs.

“The only person who has been allowed to fix King Charles’ teddy bear is his childhood nanny, Mabel Anderson, with whom he is still very close,” Andersen said.

This setting would happen when Charles “was in his 40s, and every time that dollhouse needed fixing, you’d think his son would have major surgery,” Fawcett says in the book.

Andersen said Fawcett was also responsible for squeezing the toothpaste onto the former prince’s toothbrush, shaving his face, and helping him put on his pants and lace up his shoes.

At night, he put on Charles’ pajamas and prepared his bed for a peaceful sleep.

Another servant, Ken Stronach, claims that before Charles fell asleep, Stronach would put the adult prince to bed every night and leave him cuddly with his beloved doll, Andersen’s book claimed.

But the king is not always kind and cuddly. “For someone who said he was bullied as a child, Prince Charles clearly enjoyed bullying us,” a Highgrove employee told Andersen.

“He could be nice and polite, but most of the time, he was moody and mean,” the source claimed. “He didn’t think twice about insulting you if you wronged him.”

Stronach also spoke of the king’s brutal behavior, claiming that he saw Charles grab a heavy wooden shoe and throw it at Princess Diana, who narrowly lost her head, in the midst of an argument with his then-wife.

On another occasion, while visiting a friend’s villa in southern France, Charles allegedly had a furious breakdown when one of his sleeve rings fell into the bathroom sink.

Andersen writes: “He flew in blind rage, pulled the sink off the wall, and then smashed it, looking for the cuff link.” “Unable to find the lost jewels, the stern-eyed Prince of Wales turned and grabbed his servant by the throat. Stronach broke free, and darted through a side door—and into a linen closet. Terrified, he stayed there for 30 minutes before he heard Charles leave the bathroom.”

The aquarium wasn’t the only piece of property that Charles destroyed in a fit of rage.

“Once upon a time, while he was a guest at a friend’s country house, Charles wanted some fresh air,” Andersen said. “Unable to open the window, he picked up a chair and smashed it. Not satisfied with the results, smashed another.”

“You have to understand,” said Stronach, “The Prince is used to getting what he wants. And he wanted some fresh air.”

While Charles’ invitation may come with the prospect of demolishing your property in a fit of anger, the King will surely bring his own as well, including a porcelain throne fitting for a king.

The King is rumored to travel with a custom-made toilet seat, favorite toilet paper, ice trays, and a personal chef. Andersen writes, “When he goes to dinner parties in other people’s homes, he often brings his own chef, so that they can prepare a meal for him so that he eats separately at the table.”

Charles also takes his drinks in a very special way that seems to be the royal standard. Andersen told ET that Charles, the late Queen and several members of the royal family “don’t like square ice cubes.”

“They carry trays of ice cubes, and take them with them wherever they go, because they don’t like the purring sound of square cubes,” says the author.

While waiting in the shadows for seven decades before taking the throne, Charles has gained a taste for the finer things in life and expects nothing less from the royal treatment.

“He wants what he wants when he wants it,” Andersen said.
