Rainbow was drawing in her sketch book on the couch while I folded laundry.
Rainbow: Did you ever meet anyone royal?
Me: Yes. I have seen Princess Diana and Prince Charles, and Prince Edward and Sophie, but I have only met Sophie. I shook her hand. She was very nice.
Rainbow: Is she a princess?
Me: A Countess, I think.
Rainbow: Do all the queens in the world have short curly white hair?
Me: Well… Queen Elizabeth certainly does, but there are probably queens of other countries that look different. Maybe.
Rainbow: So how do you get to be a princess?
Me: You either have to be born one or marry one.
[Long silent pause]
Rainbow: So, if someone else in your family marries a prince can you still live in a castle?
No pressure there Dolittle. No pressure at all. 🙂
