Scene: King Francis of Monrovia (green coat with read cuffs) and the Queen relax with some of the court by a small rustic cottage in the gardens of the palace. The chancellor is giving a quick update to the king ...
Chancellor: The Army of the East is mobilised apart from one regiment. The Army of the North has started their muster and some units are ready.
Chancellor: We have confirmed that the Duke of Fenwick has married the sister of the King of Wittenberg.
Queen: Was it a nice wedding ?
Chancellor: Apparently so your majesty. Strange news from Wittenberg, King Leopold has taken to wearing a rather large hat - he apparently even wears it in bed. Also he seems obsessed with hats.
King: Ha ! I knew he'd go dotty eventually. Hats - useless. Personally I prefer a nice suit of armour. Has the medieval joust been arranged yet ?
Chancellor: No, not yet but preparations are under way. That's all for today your majesty I'll leave you to enjoy the pleasures of your gardens.
King: I'm looking forward to trying on that old suit of armour in the library.
Queen: Your not wearing it in our private apartments, I'm not having you clanking round the palace.
King: Yes dearest....
