"I'm sorry, but I think that they've showed themselves to be parasites," he told Piers Morgan on his TalkTV show when he was asked what he thought about how dramatic they are. "If you want to opt out of that family situation then please by all means do and go and work at McDonald's. But don't expect me to be still forking money out to support your nonsense. They seem to be amazingly ungrateful — or at least he is."
"If you don't want to be a public figure, then shut your mouth," he declared.
This past week, Queen Elizabeth dropped out of the State Opening of Parliament, so Prince Charles took her place, but according to a body language expert, he was nervous about being front and center.
"Of course, the most powerful presence at this State Opening of Parliament was always going to be the missing one," Judi James told The Mirror. "Even with the Queen’s throne removed the gap left looked poignant and as Charles lowered himself onto what is called the Consort Throne and William squashed himself onto the smaller throne a few steps down, Charles appeared preoccupied with the crown that sat in front of him, gazing at it for several moments before he was given the speech to read."
"Charles arrived using body language signals to suggest a desire to imply control and even leadership," she continued. "There were some directional steering gestures to his wife and Black Rod on the way into the building and even some smiles of greeting, but he became more sombre and there were some undeniable signs of nerves as he took the walk to the throne room. He took a deep breath on the way in and performed a jaw-jut and sideways wobble as though bracing himself. As he arrived at the archway to the throne rooms his head suddenly jerked up to either look at the arch or the throne."
