King Charles is a ‘demanding boss’ with ‘a fierce temper and ferocious work ethic’, bombshell new royal book claims. He’s a privileged and petulant arsehole with a shocking sense of entitlement as I have been saying for decades and now we have an arsehole as ‘king’ (but not in my house)

Prince Charles is a demanding boss with a ‘fierce temper and a ferocious work ethic’ who sometimes ‘falls under the spell’ of outside advisers, according to a new book quoting former employees.

One former member of his household described how the King can go from ‘zero to 60 in a flash and then back down again’, although he ‘rarely directs’ his anger at individuals.

‘Things would frustrate him, especially the media,’ the insider told Valentine Low in his new book, Courtiers: The Hidden Power Behind the Crown, extracts of which have been published in The Times.

Former members of Charles’ staff described him as someone with ‘enormous stamina’ and lots of ideas who is ‘always working… seven days a week’.

While the King is ‘very demanding of himself’ he expects similar from his staff, with phone calls coming ‘at any time’ until 11pm at night and even at Christmas – the book claims.

‘At any moment he may want to call you about something. Working on his boxes, on his ideas, on his papers. The pace is pretty intense,’ one former courtier said.

Charles is presented as a ‘man on a mission’ with a huge range of interests.

As a result, the book describes how he has amassed scores of outside advisers who share their thoughts on ‘architecture, alternative medicine, business, organic farming, housing, Jungian psychoanalysis, Islamic art, rainforests, crop circles and the media’.

Dealing with these advisers’ ‘helpful suggestions’ was one of the challenges of working for Charles, Low claims.

The journalist writes that the royal was ‘not always a good judge of who should have his ear’.

‘Jimmy Savile, the broadcaster and charity fundraiser who, after his death, was revealed to have been a serial sexual abuser, wrote a handbook for Charles on how the royal family should deal with the media after big disasters.

‘Charles passed on his tips to the Duke of Edinburgh, who in turn showed them to the Queen.’

One former member of staff suggested these outside advisers sometimes undermined the morale of Charles’ team by suggesting they were falling short.

‘He loves it when someone says, ”Oh, they have got it wrong, sir, listen to me. I can see it better; I am outside of this,” the source told Low. ‘The prince falls under people’s spell. That could then lead to real problems for individuals.’

The book also touched on the leadership style of King Charles’ son, Prince William, describing how he told staff to ditch suits while working around his family at Kensington Palace.

Meanwhile, another extract of the book – which emerged yesterday – claimed the Duchess of Sussex believed her marriage to Prince Harry would make her ‘the Beyonce of the UK’.

The ex-actress thought life inside the Royal Family would bring celebrity and ‘kudos’ similar to the US singer but had not appreciated the rules and responsibility that came with her new role, it was alleged.

A palace source quoted in the book, extracts from which emerged yesterday, said it was ‘inevitable’ that Meghan would not fit within the tightly regulated world of the Royal Household, and claimed aides found it difficult to work with her. Others said there was a feeling she had ‘wanted to be rejected’ from the Royal Family so she could return to the US and make money.
