Meanwhile, back at the castle.
Queen: You slept poorly, my dear.
Princess: Yes, even atop twenty mattresses. It must have been that dratted pea.
Queen: Yet the children of the kingdom have slumbered magnificently, thanks to Baby Posh Garage’s custom bedding. The boutique makes sewn-to-order sheets, duvet covers, pillowcases, and more in less than two weeks.
Princess: Sounds altogether royal. I want all the trimmings.
Queen: Possibilities include silk, velvet, lace, and even personal affairs — pieces of Grandma’s quilt, Father’s ties, your wedding gown.
Princess: That would make for a precious bassinet.
Queen: Indeed. A fitted sheet, bumper, and skirt set costs only $99.
Princess: I’m calling now.
Queen: Do. You’ll get the royal treatment.
