Prince Charles Ridiculed By Royal Staff Over Outlandish "Pampered" Requests

When a person is born into money, everything they want or desire will be handed to them on a silver platter.

Although it doesn't seem fair to us regular folk who have to work for what we want, there are some positive trade-offs, such as not becoming a spoiled brat, which has happened to some members of the royal family.

But even though they live in the lap of luxury, some chose to live simpler lives, like Princes William and Harry.

"My mother took a huge part in showing me an ordinary life, including taking me and my brother to see homeless people. Thank goodness I'm not completely cut off from reality," Harry told Newsweek.

"People would be amazed by the ordinary life [Prince William] and I live. I do my own shopping. Sometimes, when I come away from the meat counter in my local supermarket, I worry someone will snap me with their phone."

"But I am determined to have a relatively normal life, and if I am lucky enough to have children, they can have one, too."

However, one member of the British monarchy would rather take advantage of their titles and wealth, and its none other than the heir to the throne himself.

"Everything is done for him."

While it's evident that Prince Charles would only expect the best, according to Amazon Prime's new documentary Serving the Royals: Inside the Firm, Queen Elizabeth II's eldest son has been served his every whim since he was born.

Charles currently resides at Clarence House, and based on his requests to the staff, it's no wonder they reportedly call him the "pampered prince."

"Everything is done for him," Princess Diana's former butler, Paul Burrell revealed in the documentary.

"His pajamas 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, adding that the Crown Prince "has his valets squeeze one inch of toothpaste onto his toothbrush every morning."

Burrell added that Charles had no qualms on asking his personnel to do the most menial tasks, including picking out trash from a garbage bin.

"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?'" he said.

And although Burrell has made accusations about the royal family's behavior behind closed doors in the past, he's not the only to speak out on the Prince of Wales' wild requests

More Demands

Back in March, Tom Bowers released a tell-all titled Rebel Prince, The Power, Passion And Defiance Of Prince Charles, in which more than 120 people were interviewed.

One source claimed Charles takes his own toilet seat with him when he travels, changes his clothes five times a day, and brings along his own meals when invited to dinner parties.

"The host would be informed in advance that an aide would be delivering a bag containing the Prince's food," they said.

The insider also made another surprising allegation, when they claimed Charles was never taught what plastic wrap is.

"Fearing the worst, Camilla dashed in after him. 'What's this?' asked her husband, pointing at the food," the book reads. "'It's cling film, darling,' she replied."

It was also suggested Charles' wife Camila Parker Bowles has begun following his lead, and brings her own drinks with her so she knows it wouldn't be spiked.

In 2015, it was reported Charles would only talk to the media if they signed a 15-page contract, which would grant Clarence House the rights to edit the work and if they didn't like any of its content, they would have the power to axe the interview in its entirety.

While we all knew the royals were afforded special privileges the average person isn't, Charles definitely takes it to new heights!
