An Interview With Her Majesty the Queen

Kaija: So, mum, how does it feel to be Queen?

Her Majesty the Queen: It feels marvelous, darling. (At this point Her Majesty excuses herself to take council with the head chef. Being Queen is hard work!)

Kaija: What is life in the royal palace like?

Her Majesty the Queen: Busy! Busy, busy, busy. It's hectic. There is always something going on. There's always something to do. Princess Kaija and I are always organizing feasts, balls, dances, and other events for our loyal subjects. It's fun.

Kaija: How would you describe your relationship with our servants and staff?

Her Majesty the Queen: Most of the time, I share a good relationship with our servants, but sometimes it's a little tense. It gets tiresome to always have staff about. The maids in particular are always stirring up trouble.

Kaija: Can you tell me a little about your relationship with your handmaiden?

Her Majesty the Queen: It's wonderful. She's perfect. She's funny. She's intelligent, and she's very kind.

Kaija: Can you tell me about your life before you became Queen? What kind of training did you have to go through when you were Crown Princess? What kind of ruler was MorMor?

Her Majesty the Queen: My training consisted of learning how to wave, practicing which fork and spoon to use at various dinner parties, and studying the cultures of the surrounding kingdoms for diplomacy purposes. Your MorMor was an impatient ruler, but a fair one as well. I hope that you will learn from our mistakes and emulate our virtues when you yourself someday become Queen.

Kaija: Thank you, Your Majesty.
