Gemma Craven: Cinderella
Chamberlain : [Explaining to Cinderella as to why she and Prince Edward can't be together] Your love for the prince and his love for you, well, that is a fine and private thing. Would that it could remain so, but the times demand something different. The prince must make a marriage of alliance with the princess blood royal. And that is why I am here, burdened with this unhappy task. You see my dear, in life, love cannot always find a way. You were born here, so you know that our little kingdom, whilst far from perfect, has enjoyed countless centuries of peace. Now that peace is threatened from without, there are some who look towards our frontiers with greedy eyes. You see only love and happiness staring you in the face, I see nothing but war and destruction; unless a sacrifice is made.
Cinderella : And that sacrifice is to be me?
Chamberlain : Yes. It's a lot to ask, but I have to ask it.
