His poor long suffering mother, was profoundly deaf, and like Princess Diana, was used and abused by her husband and when it suited the fornicating ratbag, she was stuck with, he had her placed in a mental asylum in Switzerland, so that he could shag around Europe, unhindered and unencumbered by his wife. He picked up a few "diseases" and died penniless. The reason why his no good son, was passed around the royal houses of Europe, because he didn't have a pot to p!ss in. He would borrow his cousin's clothes and shoes in order for the family to keep up the pretence of him, not being just another sponging bum, out for freebies. Like father, like son and Charles is the son of that parasite and grandson of a pox ridden old rake. His grandmother was nice though.
