An Understated Dominance by Marina Vittori Chapter 1246
Everyone instinctively turned toward the voice. At the entrance, they saw a group of armed guards escorting several aristocrats, marching in magnificently. Leading the group was an elegantly dressed, beautiful young woman.
The beautiful young woman seemed to take good care of her appearance and looked to be in her early 30s. She exuded an air of grace and elegance, her every move screaming royalty.
Beside her was a handsome young man who had his hands in his pockets. As he walked in, his gaze darted around his surroundings, looking indifferent.
“Oh my goodness, it is the Princess Consort of Theswe! Why is she here?”
“The Princess Consort of Theswe? The one from West Lucozia?”
“Of course! Who else would dare claim that title?” After seeing the beautiful young woman, the scene was again thrown into chaos. Even the high-ranking officials of Oakvale became respectful.
They wouldn’t have felt so nervous if it were just any other Princess Consort. But the Princess Consort of Theswe was different. Her power and status far surpassed that of an ordinary Princess Consort.
It was because the Prince of Theswe had extraordinary achievements, holding unparalleled influence and authority.
He was the only one to bear the country’s name within his title, allowing him to sit on an equal footing with the King and the government.
He was known as the top figure in the country, the most prominent figure of Dragonmarsh. Naturally, his wife enjoyed a similar level of prestige.
Most importantly, it was because before marrying the Prince of Theswe, the Princess Consort of Theswe was Dragonmarsh’s eldest Princess. The king’s sister! That was the reason she was so respected.
“That’s strange, isn’t the Princess Consort of Theswe always at West Lucozia? What is she doing in Balerno?”
The high-ranking officials exchanged surprised glances mixed with confusion. “Lord Grant, are you acquainted with the Princess Consort of Theswe?” an official looked at Arthur curiously.
“Acquainted?” Arthur’s expression stiffened, and he immediately shook his head. With his status, how would he dare befriend the Princess Consort of Theswe? He was just an earl and didn’t hold much power, while she was the Princess Consort with the highest authority.
The difference in their status was like night and day. Even if he were to grovel and curry favor, there was no guarantee that she would respond.
“If the Princess Consort of Theswe isn’t here because of the Grants, then it must be out of respect for Sir Hyde,” Rhett piped up.
“That’s right! Out of all of us, only Sir Hyde is worthy of requesting an audience before the Princess Consort of Theswe,” Neal chimed in.
While the position of the Minister of War might not compare with that of the Princess Consort, he was still a prominent official with a wide connection. It was normal for them to be acquainted.
“Me? Landon was taken aback, feeling doubtful. He had only met the Princess Consort of Theswe a few times, and they weren’t exactly acquainted. With her sudden appearance, was she here to help him?
“Sir Hyde, I never expected your influence to be so vast that you got even the Princess Consort of Theswe to arrive. I’m impressed!” Tyler expressed his admiration.
“Hahaha! With the Princess Consort of Theswe assistance, even the Spanner twins would have to bow down!” Arthur grinned widely.
“As expected of Sir Hyde, you’re truly amazing!” The group of high-ranking officials showered him with praise.
All the flattering left Landon on cloud nine. Although he was puzzled, it was true that he was the only one worthy of an audience with the Princess Consort of Theswe.
With this in mind, Landon straightened his collar and greeted her with a smile. Respectfully, he said, “Welcome, Your Highness. We are honored to be graced with your presence.”
Without a word, the beautiful young woman suddenly raised her hand and slapped Landon hard across the face.a She spat out, “Get on your knees!”
