As a young girl, Queen Beverly memorized a poem while waiting for the school bus. With so many cobwebs in the memory vault, she doesn’t recall the author, but remembers the poem going something like this:

Shall we have a cup of tea
and a currant bun?
Shall we sit beside the sea
after work is done?
Shall we walk together
in the twilight gray?
Shall we be the best of friends?
Shall we start today?

That poem comes back all these years later when Queen Beverly sees the prince and princess doing things like this …
and this …

Of course as children of royalty, they spend every hour of every day together in the royal palace and around the kingdom. At home with the Queen, they have plenty of time to form the strong bonds that will make them the best of friends …

Or not!

    Cute. Save those for the days they don't like each other then whip them out and say, "See!"

    Surprisingly, the Prince and Princess get along pretty well ... most of the time. The rough moments usually come with the Queen is on the phone conducting Royal business.
