With the news that the King and other senior members of the Royal Family will be preparing for a bumper two years of foreign tours, King Charles has mastered a method to make sure he quickly settles to wherever he is in the world.
The precise nature of the King's travel requests have allegedly resulted in him always travelling with his very own 'breakfast box' which contains organic produce handpicked by the King.
Throughout his long tenure as the Prince of Wales, King Charles became well-known for speaking out about his passions for protecting the environment and the importance of organic farming – and he clearly practices what he preaches according to former members of royal staff.
Speaking before Queen Elizabeth II's death, royal chef Graham Newbould revealed: "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, who worked for the family for more than 15 years. He explained that King Charles likes to ensure the royal pantry is well stocked with "his own produce".
McGrady said: "The instruction was to put two plums and a little juice into the bowl and send it into him for breakfast.
"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."
Further stringent travel demands were laid bare in Tina Brown's explosive tell-all book 'The Palace Papers: Inside the House of Windsor – the Truth and the Turmoil'.
She details how Charles allegedly sends a van of his possessions to his friends’ country houses the day before he's due to stay to unload his “bed, furniture and even pictures”.
This includes his orthopaedic bed, lavatory seat and Kleenex Velvet lavatory paper. Brown also claims Charles brings his own landscapes of the Scottish Highlands to decorate his room.
