Something to think about while you do your weekend errands.
The super elite live very, very different than the rest of us.
“His [Prince Charles] pajamas are pressed every morning, his shoelaces 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,” Princess Diana’s former butler, Paul Burrell, revealed in the new Amazon Prime’s documentary Serving the Royals: Inside the Firm.
Burrell also reports that Charles “has his valets squeeze one inch of toothpaste onto his toothbrush every morning.”
The butler’s duties reportedly extend to fetching items just a few feet away from the prince. “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?'” Burrell claimed.
From the film blurb:
This film profiles the 1200 servants, consultants, advisers and guards working for Britain's House of Windsor. Round the clock they toil, often thanklessly, to keep the monarchy humming. They iron the Queen's sheets, polish Philip's riding boots, squeeze Charles's toothpaste and walk the royal corgis. Privy to the monarchy's most intimate secrets, they are its biggest asset and greatest liability.(via NyPo)
