A very popular British sitcom, Mr Bean, featured in one episode the main character (played by Rowan Atkinson) making a hotel room his ‘home’. Drilling into his personal paintings and fixing his house curtains were some of the things the character did to “feel at home”. A recent revelation suggests that the character’s idiosyncrasy may have been inspired by a very famous personality in Britain.
Charles, Prince of Wales, is said to take his bed, toilet, toilet paper and paintings with him wherever he goes. The revelation, one of many, was published in the recently released book The Palace Papers: Inside The House Of Windsor – The Truth and The Turmoil. The book, written by journalist Tina Brown, acts as a peephole into the life of the royal family, as reported by Marie Claire.
Brown told that a day before Prince Charles was due to embark on the journey to reach his destination, a truck was used to deliver his orthopedic bed, his toilet seat, his Kleenex Velvet toilet paper and photos of Scottish landscapes. All these things were looked after and arranged by Prince Charles’ personal confidant and former valet, Michael Fawcett.
Not only this, but Prince Charles also focused sharply on the menu served to him during his travels and had prepared a preferred list of food items in advance. This list had one item that remained unchanged. It was a premixed martini drink that Prince Charles drinks in his own glass.
In her book, Brown has covered the last 25 years of the British monarchy. The book could not have been written by anyone better than Brown as she has covered the British Royal Family as a journalist, from the moment a lady named Diana Spencer got involved and soon became the Princess of Wales. The book, published by Penguin, was released on April 26.
