The Two Sides Of Royalty

It is the year 1910, and Jane May has been arranged to be married to the Duke of Dorset on her 16th birthday. She understands that this experience will change her life forever, changing her status from a normal teenager in the 19th century to the Duchess of Dorset, but she wants the best of both worlds: to keep her 2 year relationship with her lover, Edward, but at the same time, to marry William. She has wanted royalty from a young age, but knows that by marrying the Duke, she will not be able to see Edward.
Unfortunately, she does not have the choice to decide the path of her life, and so life of a Duchess begins. She adores the privacy, William, and the expensive dresses she receives, but she also has to keep her secret: sneaking out to see Edward. As her life as the Duchess of Dorset goes on, she finds that William is not the perfect Duke, or the prince of her dreams. He has some dark secrets too...

20. We move on (POV of Victoria)

The coffin is laid gently into the hole in the ground and prayers are said.

Now, it is our turn for the speeches.

William takes time, and for the first time, I see him cry.

Then it is my turn.

"Jane, you said you were my friend, and that you would treat me like a sister, and you were brave enough to help me, even though I knew the pain was hurting you so much inside. I just want you to know, happy 22nd birthday, and I know that this isn't the best time to say it. I promise you that I will look after Charles, and I will raise him up as my own, and I'll make sure that he remembers you. Thank you, Jane, for everything, and I will love you, forever. Sleep now, Jane, rest in peace."

I cannot say any more, otherwise I think I am going to cry.

With everything said, after a few hours, the funeral is over.

Everyone walks away slowly, but I stay behind a few minutes.

There is only one thing I didn't want to say in front of everyone, but now I can say it.

"The story of you was short, Jane."

"But you will be remembered." I say, looking down at her.

 

You will be remembered.
