BEING a royal certainly comes with its privileges, even aside from the fact that you get to live in a glittering palace.
When it comes to the Queen’s meals, she certainly gets the highest standards, with each potato being measured before being used.
This is done to ensure that all of the royal spuds are of a similar dimensions and don’t throw Her Majesty off the appearance of her dish, according to Reader’s Digest.
And her sandwiches are only served with rounded edges, instead of ones at right angles.
This is rumoured to be a tradition because Queen Victoria’s husband, Prince Albert, is said to have thought it was unlucky to eat coffin-shaped food.
The Queen isn’t the only one with unusual royal privileges, with Prince Charles said to like his biscuits warmed to a certain temperature before eating.
According to the publication, staff keep a warming pan on hand to ensure his biccies are hot enough to go with this cheese at the end of his meals.
While many people rush to shove on a pair of shoes before they leave in the morning, Prince Charles, 71, has a rather different dressing routine.
He has three personal valets dedicated to maintaining his wardrobe, which allegedly includes ensuring his shoelaces are ironed on each pair of shoes he owns.
His valet Michael Fawcett would even go as far as to squeeze toothpaste on his brush each night.
Her Majesty, 93, also has a team to look after her clothes, and even is said to have someone break in her shoes for her before wearing.
The Queen has worn the same style of shoe for most of her reign, which is a black leather loafer with a chunky heel finished with a buckle, handmade by Anello & Davide.
Writing in her book The Other Side of the Coin: The Queen, the Queen’s personal assistant and senior dresser, Angela Kelly, said: “As has been reported a lot in the press, a flunky wears in Her Majesty’s shoes to ensure that they are comfortable and that she is always good to go.
"And yes, I am that flunky.”
