Prince Charles Swears Live on Radio in Response to Rumor He Travels with
Personal Toilet Seat
Prince Charles channeled his dad, Prince Philip, and made a surprising gaffe
while in Australia on Wednesday when he swore during a live radio interview.
The royal, 69, who is on a seven-day tour of Australia with wife, Camilla,
Duchess of Cornwall, was caught off guard when he was asked to comment on claims
he brings with his own personal toilet with him when hes traveling.
Is it true that you carry your own toilet seat when you travel? a Hit105 host
asked the prince at an event in Brisbane.
My own what? Charles replied, before adding: Oh, dont believe all that cp.
The radio host then asked Camilla to back up his claims, asking her: So he
doesnt carry his own toilet seat when he travels?
Dont you believe that! she replied.
Following the interview, Charles communications director, Julian Payne,
hilariously referenced the rumor on Twitter, writing: The Prince and the
Duchesss tour of Australia and Vanuatu begins: 30 engagements, 7 days, 1
Commonwealth Games, 0 personal loo seats.
The claim was published in a new unauthorized biography of Prince Charles, Rebel
Prince: The Power, Passion and Defiance of Prince Charles.
In the book, British investigative journalist Tom Bower, also alleges that
Prince Charles felt threatened by Prince William and Kate Middletons
popularity. Further claims in the book include reports that Charles confronted
his mother, Queen Elizabeth, about Camilla and that the monarch called her that
wicked woman after several martinis.
