The table was set with an exquisite pedestal chandelier. Delightful piano music wafted through the door. The King, the Prince and the Princess looked over the royal menus.

At the Queen's Restaurant, the table glowed from the light of the beautiful chandelier and candle on the table.

“WHAT?” the prince and princess yelled, “There is a horse looking in the door!”
A horse peeks his head through the dining room door!

“Oh dear, oh dear!” said the queen as she rushed to the door and tried to get the horse out of the room. The Dragon was a bit distracted but he continued playing piano music to calm the diners.

Soon the King was eating his delicious steak and sweet potato and peas. The Princess thought her sesame chicken was delicious and the Prince enjoyed his fruit, especially the watermelon and strawberries. He also got some extra food because he was still hungry.
12 Queens Restaurant-12
“Would you like dessert?” the Queen asked. “Yes please!” they all said.
13 Queens Restaurant-15
“I have to use the restroom,” said the King. The Prince and Princess ate all their food until there were just crumbs on their plates.

The Queen set the table with a plate of delicious chocolates, cupcakes and hot chocolate. The King had coffee.

“This carrot is delicious,” said the Horse. “This is very tasty chicken,” said the Dragon. “Next time, I will order four whole chickens and skip the peas.”

Downstairs the guests finished their desserts. “Please refresh yourself in the garden,” said the Queen.

Soon everyone was in the garden getting fresh air.

The Prince was fascinated with the fountain, especially since it had fish in it.
22 Queens Restaurant-26
“No, No!” said the Princess. “You must not get in the fountain!”
23 Queens Restaurant-24
The Prince wanted to catch the fish. The Princess ran to talk to the horse.
24 Queens Restaurant-27
The Princess fell over but then she got up and started running after the Prince and they decided to play a game of chase in the castle, going up and down the stairs. That upset the Queen because it was her restaurant so she locked herself in the secret room under the stairs so she would be safe while everyone was running around.

And there the story ended because the lively game of chase throughout the castle required all hands so no more pictures could be taken.
