The Royal Prince of Wales was asked about several weird habits named in new book, "Rebel Prince".
Prince Charles has denied claims that he takes his own lavatory seat on overseas trips, telling the media in Australia “Don’t believe all that crap.”
The prince is in Brisbane, for the opening of the Commonwealth Games. Journalists asked him about claims in a new biography Rebel Prince, by Tom Bower that he has his own loo seat. His wife, The Duchess of Cornwall jumped in saying “Don’t you believe that.”
Bower wrote that Charles brings his orthopaedic bed, his personal toilet seat, Kleenex Premium Comfort toilet paper, fresh linen, radio, a chest of drawers and two landscapes of the Scottish Highlands everywhere with him.

He also changes clothes up to five times a day and had his own personal valet as well as a dresser.
Meanwhile former Prime Minister Paul Keating, an Irish Australian has said he thinks Charles wants to end the tradition of British royals being head of state in Australia,
Referring to the Prince, Keating said: “I have no doubt he believes Australia should be free of the British monarchy and that it should make its own way in the world.”
Keating, who has long advocated for a republic, said: “Why would he or anyone of his family want to visit Australia pretending to be, or representing its aspirations, as its head of state?”
