Book says King Charles was mean to officials and only slept with a teddy bear


Scheduled to be released on November 8th, the biography, “The King: The Life of Charles III” (“The King: The Life of Charles III”) features previously unpublished excerpts about the monarch’s personal life. Among them, highlighted by Page Six, which would show his fixation on a teddy bear and the way he treated palace employees in their 40s.

According to the publication, Charles III always had a faithful squire who was responsible for taking care of a teddy bear that he used to sleep cuddled with. It was Ken Stronach who for many years was in charge of washing the then prince’s underwear and putting him to bed with his beloved teddy bear.

The relationship between the prince and his officials was not the best. In another excerpt of the work highlighted by the publication, there is a version of a head gardener who recalls Charles’ orders and not peculiar method for inspecting whether the garden work was done correctly.

The then prince would stay on the balcony and when he didn’t like the work of the landscapers he would shout orders to them through a green megaphone. “For someone who said he was bullied as a child, Prince Charles clearly enjoyed bullying us,” a Highgrove employee told the work.

“He could be nice and courteous, but most of the time he was grumpy and mean. He didn’t think twice about shouting insults at you if you took a wrong step,” he amended.

His behavior with Diana, with whom he was married, is also the subject of the book. On one occasion, Diana came to express satisfaction as to why they had both frozen their sex lives after Harry’s birth in 1984, and Charles replied, “I don’t know, honey. I think I might be gay.”
