Prince Charles asked paedophile Jimmy Savile for advice on health 
policy and to read over his speeches, a controversial new biography 
has claimed.
The Prince of Wales and Savile were known to have had a working 
relationship after they met in the late 1970s while supporting 
wheelchair sports charities and is has long been claimed that the 
Prince relied on the now disgraced DJ for advice during the 1980s and 1990s.
In the biography, Charles: The Heart of a King, it is claimed that 
Savile was regular visitor to Highgrove and St James' Palace and was 
once at a meeting at Highgrove being held to discuss closures to 
emergency services.

The Prince of Wales asked prolific paedophile Jimmy Savile for advice 
about health policy and to read over his speeches and make any 
suggested changes to them, asking for his advice since they met in the 1970s
The book, by journalist Catherine Mayer, also claims the Prince once 
deferred to Savile to look over a speech he was due to give and make 
any changes, the Telegraph reported.
'One source tells of an occasion when the Prince asked his famous 
occasional adviser to read over a speech he was due to give on a 
topic unrelated to health care or any field in which Savile had 
expertise,' wrote Mayer. She said Savile did not make any changes on 
that occasion.
The book sheds new light on the extent to which the Prince relied on 
Savile as his confidant.
Savile died in 2011 and was exposed as a prolific paedophile, using 
his celebrity status to prey on child victims. He is said to have 
abused hundreds of victims, taking advantage of having free run of 
Stoke Mandeville Hospital, Broadmoor and Leeds General Infirmary.
The book also deals with Prince Charles' relationships, revealing 
that he had doubts about his wedding to Princess Diana and on the eve 
of the ceremony said 'I can't do it.'
Sarah Goodall, a former Lady Clerk to the Prince previously claimed 
in an autobiography that Savile gave marriage guidance counselling to 
the Prince and Princess of Wales. This claim was denied by Clarence

3. He talks to the dead, not his plants - Prince Charles and his Ouija board
The Prince's famous comment that he likes to talk to his plants at 
Highgrove is dismissed by Mayer as a throwaway joke, but she claims 
he does go to his garden to talk to the dead.
He was so affected by the loss of his mentor Earl Mountbatten in an 
IRA bombing in 1979 that it "made him want to die too", and "fell 
into a despair" following the death of his grandmother, Queen 
Elizabeth, in 2002.
Despite his faith, and belief in the afterlife, "Charles never quite 
relinquishes his grief", Mayer says. "He fills his domains with 
little shrines and memorials; he goes into his gardens not to talk to 
the plants but to the deceased."
In doing so, he hopes to keep the Queen Mother, Mountbatten "and a 
host of other departed spirits alive in his heart".
The garden at Highgrove includes a sanctuary made of stone, clay and 
barley straw, with a wood burning stove, built by the Prince "to 
geometric principles which he considers sacred". Above the door is an 
inscription in Pictish, the language of an ancient British tribe, 
which translates as "Lighten our darkness we beseech thee, o Lord".
Richard Chartres, Bishop of London, consecrated it in 2000 and 
described it as a hermitage where the Prince reads the Philokalia, a 
collection of texts written between the 4th and 15th centuries for 
the contemplation of monks at Mount Athos in Greece, the home of 
Eastern Orthodox Christianity.
Lucia Santa Cruz would not be surprised at his choice of reading 
matter: she suggests that Tolstoy's Anna Karenina, which she 
persuaded him to read at university, may be the only novel he has ever read.
"He said he liked [the novel] but he never wanted to read another 
one, I don't think. He always wanted to stick to history or essays," 
she told Mayer.
