Royal Family: Prince Charles' very unusual breakfast that Prince William warned guests not to eat

 

As the future king, you would probably expect Prince Charles to eat like it, with gourmet meals served breakfast, lunch, and dinner. But as it turns out, the Prince of Wales seems to have a preference when it comes to breakfast, and it’s absolutely nothing like what you’d expect.

In fact, Charles’ choice of morning snack is so odd that even his sons tease him for it, a young Prince William once warning guests at a breakfast buffet to stay well away from his dad’s ‘bird food’. This has all been revealed in the new book The Palace Papers written by journalist and Princess Diana biographer Tina Brown.

According to the book in a passage describing Prince Charles’ relationship with sons William and Harry, Brown describes how the Prince would take the boys to Stratford-upon-Avon to see plays by the Royal Shakespeare Company. On one trip to see the Tempest, they were accompanied by actor and national treasure Stephen Fry, who recalled a particularly striking memory from breakfast that day.

Brown writes: “At breakfast at Highgrove, Fry was inspecting a buffet when he lifted a tureen that offered Charles’ preferred heap of Linseed. Prince William said ‘Oh no, don’t go near the bird table, Stephen, that’s only for Pa’.”This hilarious exchange not only revealed Charles’ love for the ancient and fibrous seeds popular among health fanatics, but also gives a window into the playful relationship Charles and his sons shared. Brown adds that Fry “was enchanted by how the boys teased their father, which he thought was a ‘truly healthy sign’.”In recent years as vegan and healthier lifestyles have become more popular, foods like linseed have grown in popularity, but even now they’re unusual and you certainly wouldn’t have expected royalty to be so far ahead of the curve!
