Alexandra is in the bloom of young adulthood and not quite ready to face the responsibility she must carry, yet she obediently meets Albert, who turns out to be not quite what anyone expects. Though obviously older than Alexandra, he actually seems shyer, uncomfortable and uninterested in ceremonies and politics, but comes alive when introduced to the family's cows and when invited for a game of football with George and George's tutor, Dr. Nicholas Agi. The handsome Dr. Agi, being kindly and sensitive to Alexandra's situation, becomes a sympathetic ear. Then, in the princess' first grown-up dance with Agi, sparks fly. With first love awakened, Alexandra must decide whether to follow her heart or her duty as a princess, but before she does, Albert makes a surprising declaration.
