No mater how hectic life gets, Prince Charles always takes his bizarre 'breakfast box' with him everywhere he goes.
With the nation gearing up for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, it promises to be a busy few weeks for the royals, however, for this prominent member of the family, his exacting demands will continue.
Known for enjoying the finer things in life – from ironed shoelaces to insisting on travelling with his own choice of toilet paper – it has been revealed that HRH can be quite fussy when it comes to what he eats of a morning too.
According to My London, anywhere he goes in the world, he is always takes along his trusty breakfast box.
And being well-known for his love of organic farming, the Prince of Wales likes to have a healthy start to his day, WalesOnline reports.
Chef, Graham Newbould, a former member of the royal staff, said: “Prince Charles has a healthier option.
"He’d have homemade bread, a bowl of fresh fruit, fresh fruit juices.
"Wherever the Prince goes in the world, the breakfast box goes with him.
"He has six different types of honey, some special mueslis, his dried fruit and anything that’s a bit special that he is a bit fussy about.”
Another specific breakfast request was revealed by former royal chef, Darren McGrady.
He explained that the Prince likes to ensure the royal pantry is well stocked with “his own produce”.
"The instruction was to put two plums and a little juice into the bowl and send it into him for breakfast,” he said.
“I’d send in two plums and he would take one so it would come back out after breakfast and I’d put the other plum back into the jar and save it.
"One morning I thought, ‘ok, he only eats one for breakfast,’ so I only put one plum into the bowl and sent it out into the dining room. "The attending [waiter] came through and said, ‘can His Royal Highness have two please?’ So I had to keep sending two in every morning.”

This isn’t the first time the Prince’s eccentric or exacting standards have been laid bare to the public.
In 2015 documentary ‘Serving the Royals: Inside the Firm’, former royal butler Paul Burrell said of Charles: “His pyjamas 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.
"He has his valets squeeze one inch of toothpaste onto his toothbrush every morning.”
