King Charles has been dubbed a “martini guy” by Bridesmaids director Paul Feig.

Paul, who is best known for comedy movies like Bridesmaids and Netflix’s The School for Good and Evil, once made a martini for the 73 year old monarch when he was still the Prince of Wales.

Speaking to the Sunday Times he recalled: “We are good friends with Santa Montefiore, the novelist, and her husband, Simon Sebag [Montefiore], who is close friends with Charles.

“He has known him forever and so, for my 60th, they arranged tea for me at Highgrove with Prince Charles.'”

He also said that were he to design a cocktail for the King, he’d include Dubonnet in tribute to the King's mother The Queen, who was a well known lover of the drink.

“But Charles is a martini guy and I make good martinis. It's my superpower,” added the author of new book Cocktail Time!

Earlier this week, a royal author told OK! how the King, whose coronation is set for next year, is feeling “anxious” about Prince Harry’s long-awaited memoir, Spare.

The book, which publisher Penguin House promises will be full of “insight, revelation, self-examination and hard-won wisdom”, was initially set for an October 2022 release before being pushed back to January 10 after Queen Elizabeth's death in September.

Author Tom Bower said: “I think Charles will be fearful. If the book does contain the criticisms I fear it will, it could be damaging for Charles.

“It’ll challenge him in a way that will be very, very difficult in his coronation year. ‘How much worse can it get?’ he must think."

Speaking about the title of Prince Harry's book, Tom said: “The title sets the tone. You don’t call your book Spare if you don’t want to provoke a reaction.

“I think [he’s implying] he was cast off, pushed aside, made to feel irrelevant and unwanted.”

Tom recently appeared on The Megyn Kelly Show, where he spoke about King Charles’ intention to strip Harry and Meghan Markle of their royal titles should the contents of the book prove inflammatory.

He said: “He has made various threats to Meghan and Harry and warned that them if they go ahead they will find themselves ostracised in a way they cannot believe. And so they are worried."

He continued: “First of all, I do not think their children will get titles if they go ahead and slander the Royal Family.

“But they have also got to consider their own titles, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, could be taken away by Charles if they misbehave.

"That is something Meghan and Harry are very worried about because after all although she pours dirt on the royal family the whole time, whenever she introduces herself she says: ‘I am Meghan, Duchess Of Sussex’.”
