You’ll Be Stunned By All Of Prince Charles’ Strange Habits

Prince Charles of Wales is finally preparing to step into his destiny and take on the throne as the future King of England. His journey has been riddled with scandal, a broken marriage, and various antics that have been frowned upon by the British public and political powerhouses.

Though the prince seems ready to take over for his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, his fractured reputation, and some rather odd habits are making some folks very wary of seeing Prince Charles sitting on the throne.

Apparently, Prince Charles has lived such a lavish and aloof lifestyle that he had no clue what cling wrap was until he encountered it one evening as he searched for a midnight snack.

According to author Tom Bower who wrote Rebel Prince: The Power, Passion and Defiance of Prince Charles, the prince’s wife, Duchess Camilla Parker Bowles heard him shriek in horror from the kitchen. The duchess had to reassure him by saying, “It’s cling film, darling.”

The horror.
