The future King of England has to have his favourite breakfast foods with him when making royal visits abroad. Former royal chef Graham Newbould, spoke about Prince Charles’ travel habits in the documentary Secrets of the Royal Kitchen.
He said: “Wherever the Prince goes in the world, the breakfast box goes with him.
“He has six different types of honey, some special mueslis, his dried fruit and anything that’s a bit special that he is a bit fussy about.”
Prince Charles is known to skip lunch which means his breakfast much be perfect.
The prince normally eats a soft-boiled egg for his morning meal.
His chefs have to follow a strict routine to make the perfect egg.
In Jeremy Paxman’s book, On Royalty, the author wrote about Prince Charles’ egg demands.
He said: “Because his staff were never quite sure whether the egg would be precisely to the satisfactory hardness, a series of eggs was cooked, and laid out in an ascending row of numbers.
“If the prince felt that number five was too runny, he could knock the top off number six or seven.”

“When this happened, his detective would ring ahead on the mobile phone to give us advance warning of the numbers expected.”
She added: “I knew that Charles wanted his eggs cooked for three minutes exactly and that Mervyn usually had several pots on the go to ensure that at least one batch was perfect.
“The others were simply thrown away.”
But Buckingham Palace has denied that the Prince of Wales has his staff waste eggs calling the claims “untrue”.
When travelling, Prince Charles reportedly has his royal staff ship food from Highgrove.
Carolyn Robb, former royal chef, told the MailOnline about Prince Charles’ requests to eat his home-grown food abroad.
Ms Robb was the youngest and first female chef to serve Prince Charles and Princess Diana.
She worked in the royal kitchen for 11 years.
Ms Robb explained how Prince Charles would ship “piles and piles of cool boxes” of his own produce from Highgrove to locations he visited.
She added: “He liked to have his own food with him.”
