She goes to Paris where she gives birth to a baby girl, but she tells everyone she's taken in her niece. Bertie decides not to tell Prince Louis of the birth.

Her second performance, at the Haymarket Theater in the West End is a resounding success. She then plans a tour in the United States. Written by garykmcd
