King Charles was attached to his childhood teddy bear well into adulthood, according to a new book.

In the biography “The King: The Life of Charles III,” out Nov. 8, Christopher Andersen writes that the now-king’s former trusted valet, Michael Fawcett, was in charge of caring for the stuffed animal — when Charles was in his forties. Anytime the toy needed mending, the royal’s former nanny Mabel Anderson was brought out of retirement to make the necessary repairs.

According to a former valet, the retired nanny “was the only human being allowed to take needle and thread to Prince Charles’ teddy bear. He was well into his forties, and every time that teddy needed to be repaired, you would think it was his own child having major surgery,” Andersen writes.

Valet Fawcett was also in charge of squeezing toothpaste onto the then-Prince of Wales’ monogrammed toothbrush, shaving his face, helping him put on trousers and lacing up his shoes. He laid out the royal’s pajamas and turned down his bed nightly.

The gardening staff at Charles’ Highgrove estate were expected to live up to his exacting standards as well.

The head gardener, Andersen writes, woke up every day to a list of “instructions and complaints written by his boss in red ink.”

Charles only allowed his beloved nanny, Mabel Anderson, to repair his childhood teddy.
