Prince William had a brilliant smile on his face as he walked toward Alice in long strides.
Several members of the royal family followed behind him.
A look of sorrow flashed past Alice’s eyes after catching sight of Prince William. However, she could only hide her emotions for the sake of them all. She abided by her father’s instructions and beamed brightly.
From where he stood, Nirina could see the change in Alice’s expression. He shook his head and felt pity for her.
Prince William 300. made his way to her and greeted Horton like a gentleman.
He then cracked a smile that he thought to be most handsome and proud as he took Alice’s head. “Hello, my most beautiful Alice. From now on, you will be the most honored princess in my heart.”
The crowd applauded and cheered for Prince William upon hearing his honeyed words.
The women at the scene were extremely envious and jealous. They badly wished that they could be Alice so they could marry Prince William.
As for the men, they envied Prince William for marrying a woman as lovely as Alice. It was every man’s ultimate dream!
Alice felt disgusted by the sight of Prince William’s pride because she remembered what he was like in the presence of the assassins the other day.
What happened to all of Prince William’s much lauded calm and bravery at that time? He was just a coward and nothing more. She used to assume that Prince William was a man of poor morality but great courage.
After what happened that day, she was extremely disappointed by him.
Thinking of that, she could not help thinking about Nirina again and wondered where he had gone.
It would have been great if Nirina were there.
Prince William was still waiting for Alice’s reply. He could not help feeling infuriated by her absentmindedness and he began squeezing her hand tighter and tighter.
Alice was jolted back to reality from the pain. Noticing the quick flash of rage that appeared in Prince William’s eyes, she said, “Thank you so much, Your Highness. You look very handsome today too.”
Prince William’s expression turned slightly more pleasant.
He greeted Horton and displayed the demeanor and etiquette of a prince.
Alice had no choice but to acknowledge that Prince William was very skilled at handling people. He was especially great at boosting his reputation despite being a coward.
The crowd felt he had a kingly manner after seeing that, so they admired and respected him even more.
On the other hand, the more she saw, the more Alice felt that Prince William was a hypocrite.
Next, the engagement ceremony began. Alice had her arm in Prince William’s and they greeted the stream of distinguished guests.
The Queen still had yet to show up. It was apparent that she would only show up at the final moment to give her blessing to Alice and Prince William as the queen and also as the senior member of the royal family.
The crowd was waiting for that moment. It would surely be the most glorious moment.
Many women envied Alice. Nirina could hear them talk jealously about her in the corner.
Shaking his head, he could not help handing it to Prince William. The prince put a lot of work into boosting his reputation and it seemed very effective.
Meanwhile, a distinguished guest asked Prince William, “Your Highness, I heard that you and Ms. Alice were ambushed by assassins. May I inquire what happened?”
Upon hearing that, the rest of the crowd‘s attention was drawn to him at once, staring at Prince William curiously.
