Prince Charles does not have seven boiled eggs cooked for him at breakfast, does not dislike all modern architecture, but does pay tax, according to a new Royal Family website.

The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall website has a "frequently asked questions" section that aims to dispel popular myths and rumours surrounding the Prince and those closest to him.

Responding to the claims made in Jeremy Paxman's 2006 book "On Monarchy" that seven boiled eggs are prepared for Prince Charles but he eats only one, Clarence House states, "No, he doesn't and never has done, at breakfast or any other time".

Clarence House, Prince Charles' private office, is renowned for protecting the secrecy of the heir to the throne and those around him - but seems to have changed tact.

The website denies that the Prince dislikes all modern architecture, instead highlighting that he has been a Patron of several contemporary architects.

"The Prince believes buildings should be designed on a human scale and be sustainable, should respect the character of local surroundings, and should be able to cope with a variety of uses over their lifetime", it states.

Responding to the query, "Does the Prince advocate untested and dangerous alternative medical therapies?", the website says, "Not at all".

"The Prince is a keen advocate of integrated healthcare. This means taking a wider, preventative approach to healthcare by addressing the underlying social, lifestyle and environmental causes", it continues.

While Camilla "gave up smoking many years ago", Charles pays tax, has not given any thought to his coronation, nor lent his support to the creation of a new Royal Yacht as a legacy for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, the website adds.
