Prince Charles has finally cleared up a rumour about his own personal toilet seat by calling it a load of crap.
Charles, 69, and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, spoke with a Hit105 host on Wednesday while on a seven-day tour of Australia.
Prince Charles has offered a withering response after being asked if he takes his own toilet seat on overseas trips.
And while he was there he was quizzed on claims made in a new biography that Charles carries his own toilet seat everywhere he goes.
The amusing claim about Charles traveling with his own personal toilet seat apparently originated in Tom Bower's new unauthorized biography, Rebel Prince: The Power, Passion and Defiance of Prince Charles.

However, the Duchess of Cornwall also laughed off the rumors about her husband when questioned by Hits 105 Brisbane, scolding, "Oh, don't you believe that!"
We've listened to the audio several times, and have decided that the Duchess' wordless response is the exact midpoint between an embarrassed groan and an annoyed sigh.
Beattie also insisted the royal couple were enthusiastic during the night, where Prince Charles officially opened the Games with a message from his mother, Queen Elizabeth.
For the first time in the 117 years since Australia became a self-governing country, both the prime minister and the opposition leader agree that the British monarch should be replaced by an Australian citizen as the Australian head of state.
The royal couple then went on and visited the Lady Cilento Children's Hospital.
