Prince Charles has scotched a report that he demands his own private toilet seat accompany him on his travels.
“Oh, don’t believe all that crap,” the 69-year-old told a Hit105 radio journalist who pressed him on the issue.
The reporter then asked Prince Charles’ wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, whether it was true. She replied: “Oh just shh. Don’t you believe that.”
Tom Bower’s new book Rebel Prince: The Power, Passion and Defiance of Prince Charles also alleges that Charles once spent £18,916 (around $26,500) to travel to northern England for a drink.
“He’s a pampered, petulant prince and a man who, while he wants to do good and does do good, does not realize that he’s actually doing some harm as well. He doesn’t seem to care about that,” Bower told HuffPost UK.
Charles is in Australia for the Commonwealth Games.
