Prince Charles swears to a journalist when asked about bringing his personal toilet to Australia
He responded to the unusual question with an unintended pun.
According to an article published by People, Prince Charles used an unlikely slang term while being interviewed on live radio, when he was asked whether he carried his own toilet everywhere he traveled.
The 69-year-old heir was the subject of the new book titled Rebel Prince: The Power, Passion, and Defiance of Prince Charles, written by noted biographer Tom Bower.
The book contained several unusual pieces of trivia about the royal, and one of them was that he always preferred to use his own toilet and carried a portable one with him while touring.
The radio interview host quizzed Prince Charles about this statement, to which he responded with disbelief and blurted the swear word.
“My own what?” Charles replied, before adding: “Oh, don’t believe all that c—p.”

Since the royal did not specifically admit or deny the claim, the host passed the question on to Camilla, who was also a part of the interview.
Camilla’s response was indirect as well, indicating that it was a baseless claim.

This topic was further referenced by Prince Charles’ communications director Julian Payne on social media.
Payne shared a post in which he announced the commencement of the royal couple’s Australia and Vanuatu tour.
He added that it comprised of 30 engagements in a week’s time, including the Commonwealth games, and zero personal toilet seats, thus denying the statement while taking a jab at the interview question.
The book by Bower claims to reveal several unknown insider facts about the life of Prince Charles.
For instance, Bower wrote that the royal feels insecure about the growing popularity of his son Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton.
The book also contains certain statements revolving around the story of Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles.
According to the findings of the author, the Queen once referred to Camilla as ‘that wicked woman after several martinis,’ and that Prince Charles once confronted his mother bluntly about Camilla.
