A queen’s education is not something that can be acquired overnight.
That’s why the Crown Prince must be engaged to a girl from a house that will support him as soon as possible.
Lumina knows that, but she thinks so.
She believed that he should not have a fiancée before he met Sophie, as she would be ruined from an early age by the love between him and Sophie when she began her education.
—If I had done that from the beginning, I wouldn’t have had to hurt myself over and over again.
Stephan turns serious at Lumina’s words and says it in a quiet tone.
“It will be difficult. I will need support to become Crown Prince, and my fiance would need to attend the Queen’s education as early as possible.
“…I don’t think so”
“With the exception of First Prince Stephen, the second prince, Riddick is the son of a concubine and three years younger than His Highness Stephan. Isn’t it okay as long as he doesn’t have a strong fiancee? And, in terms of the queen’s education, if your fiancee is a good lady, she should be able to begin at the age of 18.”
At Lumina’s words, Stephan’s eyes glowed dully.
“It’s simple to say. There is nothing better than deciding on an engagement early on to become the crown prince, and the queen’s education is very important… Maybe it’s not that difficult. I don’t think it’s that simple, is it?”
“What does Your Highness know about the queen’s education? I said she would be ready on time, but I never said it wouldn’t be difficult.”
Stephan was startled by Lumina’s suddenly stern tone.
He felt intimidated, as if he were being warned by his mother herself.
“That’s… But you don’t know, do you?”
“I know. Much more than His Highness.”
At these provocative words, Stephan wrinkled his brow and said,
“Oh? How about this? If you think you understand the Queen’s education, then tell me.”
At these words, something slowly ignited in Lumina’s heart.
Stephen always brags that Sophie would be ready for the queen’s education when the time came to break off their engagement.
It is true that a brilliant lady can be educated from the age of 18.
However, Lumina thinks it’s a delicate point when asked if Sophie can start the Queen’s Education at the age of 18.
And Stephan said it with confidence.
‘She will make it.’
For the first time, Lumina smiles at Stephan.
“Yes, If I may be so bold, Lumina would like to teach his highness what the Queen’s is all about. In return, may I ask you to grant me a wish?”
“…What is it?”
“If his highness thinks his thoughts are shallow, please admit it.”
“How?! What is that supposed to mean?”
“His Highness was disrespectful earlier. He said that the queen’s education was not difficult. How shallow it is to make light of it without knowing its true meaning.”
Stephan said, with a bitter expression on his face.
“Fine, then I will admit my mistake.”
Lumina stood up and bowed her head in a beautiful way when she heard these words.
“Do not forget those words. Now, as for the date, please let me know when His Highness has time. I will be there whenever you want. Oh, and I have one more request.”
“Is there any more?”
“It would be my pleasure if Sharon-sama could attend the Queen’s education. Two people might cause unwanted speculation.”
After that, Lumina left the tea party, and the party ended a short time later.
At that point, there was no announcement of the fiancee, and Lumina would receive a letter of invitation from Stephan at a later date.
