The royal family are more famous than even the most popular celebrities here in the United States. I mean, who didn't watch Prince William marry Kate Middleton? I feel silly admitting saying this, but my wife and I woke up at 4 a.m. to watch the event.
For one day, "commoners" were given an inside look at what it was like to be a member of the royal family, even if it was just through the television. When we were done watching, I was thinking if the couple's wedding was this big, then I can't even imagine what the royal living quarters must be for the couple and other members of the family.
But after reading an article, I realized that even the rich and famous have to deal with everyday tasks, like making sure their manual thermostat is set at the appropriate temperature. Apparently, Prince Charles likes the palace a bit cooler than his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla.
The article talked about how Prince Charles prefers to lower the manual thermostat and bundle up in layers of clothing instead of making it warmer. The Duchess has reportedly given him a hard time because she prefers that the temperature be warmer.
This article made me laugh because it made me realize I have something in common with a member of the royal family! I am constantly lowering the temperature on my manual thermostat and my wife is always yelling at me because of this.
According to the article, Prince Charles said that he thinks he inherited his preference for a cooler house from Queen Victoria. That got me thinking again, did they have manual thermostats in the 1800's?
