“By the way, I can’t believe father-in-law was secretly planning something like that.”

“I’m surprised as well…”

Liz, I, and Hanna are in a carriage on our way to Marquis Friedenreich’s townhouse in the royal capital that evening.

Of course, we had to go to the Marquis of Friedenreich’s party to celebrate our admission to the Royal Academy.

“However, since only my faction’s nobles will be present today, it should be simple.”

“Fufu, you’re right. Especially because I’m going home.”

“…I’d rather not not if possible.”

Hannah, in contrast to me and Liz, had a strangely unpleasant expression.

“Why? Isn’t the Friedenreich household where Hanna has lived since she was a child?”

“That…”

Hannah stammered when I inquired.

“Dee-sama. Actually…”

Liz whispered softly in my ear.

I see… the butler of Marquis Friedenreich is Hanna’s teacher? And the butler appears to have a bad habit of teasing Hannah.

“That… Hannah’s also struggling…”

“Yes…”

So we’re chatting in the carriage…

“I guess we’re here.”

“Fufu…yes.”

The carriage arrives at the Marquis of Friedenreich’s townhouse, and I step out first.

“Liz.”

“Thank you very much…”

Liz takes my hand and steps out of the carriage slowly.

“And Hannah, too.”

“… Your Highness, truly…”

Hanna takes my hand and steps out of the carriage, her face turned away slightly.

“Greetings, Your Highness Dietrich. My name is Lambert, and I work as a butler.”

The person who came to meet us was Hannah’s teacher, the butler of the Friedenreich family, about whom I had heard so much.

But I see… From his demeanor and mannerisms, you can tell he’s quite a figure.

“I appreciate your time today.”

“It’s been a long time, Lambert.’

“I’m glad you’re doing well, Marguerite-sama.”

Liz smiles at Lambert, who is bowing… and

“…”

Hannah is not saying anything in front of her mentor.

“Hanna, it appears that His Highness Dietrich and Marguerite-sama cherished you. I wasn’t expecting you to step out of the carriage holding Dietrich’s hand. And the way you’re dressed…”

“T-That’s…”

“Oya, Hannah, I think your ears are red. What’s the matter?”

“—!”

…I see Lambert likes to tease Hanna at this point.

Hannah’s habit of teasing appears to have been passed down from her teacher.

“Everyone has already shown up. Please, this way.”

Lambert walks us down the hall.

“Oh, they’ve arrived!”

“Oh! You look fantastic!”

The nobles who were at the party noticed us right away when we entered.

In addition, we’re wearing a uniform today, rather than our usual dress code, to commemorate our admission to school.

“Welcome, Your Highness Dietrich, Margaret.”

“Thank you so much for celebrating with us today, Father-in-law.”

“Kuku… I’m still a little embarrassed to be called that by His Highness.”

“I’m afraid you’ll have to get used to that.”

The Marquis of Friedenreich scratches the bridge of his nose with his index finger.

Anyway, you’ll have to give it up because you’re my father-in-law.

“Well, Your Highness, the party can’t begin until you say something.”

“Yes.”

I stand in front of people with a glass of grape wine in my hand, at the request of the marquis.

“I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for coming together today to congratulate me and Marguerite. Finally, we were admitted to the Royal Academy.”

Everyone in the hall is smiling and listening to what I’m saying.

My comrades who have been there for me over the last year and a half.

“…I declare once more. I’m going to be Estline’s King. I will make certain that every person in this country smiles for the rest of their lives. I implore you all to assist a young man like me.”

“Long live His Highness Dietrich!”

“Long live Estline’s kingdom!”

The hall erupted with applause and cheers when I finished my speech.

“Dee-sama… That was an excellent speech, full of your thoughts and emotions.”

“If you think so, I’m overjoyed.”

Liz applauded my arrival, and I gently drew her into a hug.
