The King of the Belgians pursues Lillie with great fervor and although she refuses his advances, all of London society is aware of his attempts. Fortunately for Lillie, he's seen as an old fool and everyone sympathizes with her plight. She continues to make conquests and is still much in demand by society hostesses. For her friend Oscar Wilde, she is his muse and he has produced a new book of poetry in her honor. She is taken aback however when he suggests to her that her most recent round of social invitations have all been by close friends to the Prince of Wales and that she is in effect being vetted. Soon after, she and her husband are invited to dinner where she is formally introduced to the Prince. Written by garykmcd
