The Royal Palace
After waiting in line, Kathy and Evan finally enter the Swedish Royal Palace.
K:Ooh! This is the most beautiful building I've ever seen!
E:It is magnificent. It compares with other great buildings here in Europe.
K:All the paintings and decorations! The royal family really knew how to live it up.
E:Most royal families in Europe lived beyond our wildest dreams. Some still do.
K:You mean like the House of Windsor?
E:Yes. Queen Elizabeth II is the world's richest woman, after all.
And I believe the Queen of the Netherlands is the world's second richest.
K:Imagine all that money!
E:I prefer to imagine all that power.
E:Anyway, let's go through some of the rooms here and pretend we'll be this rich some day.
K:Yeah, right! It's fun to dream, though.
I think in every girl's heart, there's a dream about being a princess.
E:And in every man's heart there is a princess...
K:Oh, Evan! I didn't know you were so romantic!
