Website denies royal breakfast claim

LONDON — Prince Charles does not order seven boiled eggs for breakfast in order to choose the one he likes best, his office said in a statement designed to dispel myths about the heir to the British throne.

The claim was made by BBC Television presenter Jeremy Paxman in a 2006 book. The website of the prince of Wales, as Charles is officially known, was updated Tuesday to dismiss that assertion and other commonly held views about the prince and his family.
