Queen fired Prince Charles’ nanny for overstepping mark with ‘special pudding’

The Queen once fired her son Charles' nanny after she went against her requests regarding a "special pudding", according to an insider.

Nannies have always been a key part of life for The Firm, taking care of the children while members of the Royal Family go about their official duties.

But all the time they spend with the royals can also lead to bad things happening, as the Queen once discovered when she was forced to let one go, The Mirror reported.

Bryan Kozlowski, a royal author, shared the shocking story in his book Long Live the Queen! 13 Rules for Living from Britain's Longest Reigning Monarch.

Bryan said that the nanny was too discerning about the eight-year-old Charles' meals for the Monarch's liking.

He writes: "It's said she took pleasure in tormenting the Palace kitchen with her exacting standards.

"Dishes for young Charles were constantly being refused or remade based on little more than the nanny's personal whims.

"The Queen eventually had enough and fired her."

But according to the author, it was one incident in particular that was the final straw for the Queen – and it was all around a "special pudding".

Kozlowski writes:"In 1956, the Queen sent the nursery a simple request that Charles, then eight years old, be given a special pudding she thought he might like.

"[The nanny] refused, crossed the dessert from the menu, and incurred the Crown's wrath. Nobody crosses out the Queen's request."
