Key Quotes From Chapter One
The life of a grand duchess is not always easy. This was something that I was quickly learning. While there were many perks to the lifestyle, there were also a lot of expectations and rules that came along with it.

You’re only allowed to say no to one engagement every month; otherwise people will think you’re snobby or stuck up. I’ve always been so grateful to have such a supportive family who loved me unconditionally and could understand how difficult all this can be sometimes. They would often help me out by covering some of my more tedious obligations when they could or just give me space when I needed it.
I know that my parents are doing their best to prepare me for what comes next as well.
