IT’S GOOD TO BE KING!
Cranky new ruler’s bizarre secret habits
QUIRKY King Charles pitched a royal tantrum in Northern Ireland when he was forced to use a leaky pen!
His haughty highness, 73, first showed his frustration when he wrote down the wrong date during the
Sept. 13 signing ceremony— despite a calendar being on the desk before him.
Then the mollycoddled monarch lost his cool when his imperfect pen leaked ink and griped about “this bloody thing” before stomping out of the room.
Palace insiders familiar with Charles’ former life as the pampered Prince of Wales say he’s long issued exacting demands and lived like a king — even before wearing the crown.
Paul Burrell — who served as a butler to Charles’ mother, Queen Elizabeth, and his ex-wife, Princess Diana — claims the prickly prince has valets iron his shoelaces and squeeze exactly one inch of toothpaste on his brush every morning, demands daily homemade bread and wants his favorite cheeses precisely pre-warmed.
Sources dish the finicky fuddy-duddy is also particular about his personal throne — and travels with his own toilet seat and personal wipes!
