Chuckling slightly, she quickly agrees. "Thank you. It truly has been - with my sister and her husband being ousted from their British thrones, to Joshuastania becoming a republic, to the ES becoming a monarchy - I'm just so surprised that the world hasn't completely flipped upside-down!"
Queen Birgit smiles. “ Thank you. I will be here after you greet your guests.” She then goes and mingles with the nobles and business leaders that are here.

Isabella laughs quite loudly at this and responds. "It is a real shame what my sister Rosa did to relations between our two countries. It is even worse off considering how she is the reason why your sister and her husband were ousted from their throne. We really must rescue them before Joshuastania finds them first." She raises her glass. "To Charles and Marie!" She easily drinks down the whole thing. "We should discuss this further, after the party." She looks over at the clearly drunk Goeth and laughs at the fact that she is out drinking him.
Isabella is grinning wildly at the Queen. "I heard that those little b****es Rosa, Otto and Elenor single handedly dethroned Charles and Marie. It brings a tear to my eyes to even mention this turn of events. You should join myself and the Tsarevena after the party so we can discuss how to get Charles and Marie out of there." She looks at Goeth rolling her eyes and taking a drink, her fourth one tonight. It would take many, many more drinks for Isabella to get drunk so she isn't anywhere close to Goeth's current state.
The Queen smiles. “They single handedly ousted Marie and James. I will certainly join you after the party to discuss this issue. This country will not recognize the new king. He is not the rightful king of that country.”
"I will not recognize Gordon I either your majesty! I do fear that the civil war that is happening in the UK which is such a short distance from the GN may spill over into neighboring countries. I can also guarantee that Joshuastania will intervene as well, we both know what that country is capable of so we need to be cautious." Isabella looks around. "Have you seen Prince Alexander anywhere?"
“I am also afraid that the civil war will spill over. Joshuastania will intervene and I will keep an eye on them. You will also keep an eye on them as head of military intelligence.” She looks around. “ I think I see him over there talking to the Duke of Stegeborg.”
Isabella downs her 5th drink and gets up. "Thank you your majesty, I will go to him now." Isabella walks towards Prince Alexander getting looks from many party guests who know exactly who she is. Soon she walks up to Prince Alexander and the Duke of Stegeborg. She waits for a break in their conversation before bowing slightly and says. "I am back my prince, I was just keeping Goeth company." She looks at the severely drunk Goeth and snickers before giving Alexander a kiss.

The Queen watches her walk away. Prince Alexander smiles. “I can see why you were keeping him company. He looks like he has really enjoyed the party. I would like to introduce you to the Duke of Stegeborg.”
The Duke bows and takes her hand. “Nice to meet you Isabella. I have heard good things about you. This is an excellent party, the Tsarevna does have really good taste.”
She smiles at this comment. "Thank you very much, I am being put in charge of the intelligence division of the GN and I even renounced my Joshuastanian citizenship. I feel so lucky and blessed to have been engaged to Prince Alexander." She leans up against her Prince. "Please, continue with whatever you were discussing."
“ This country needs someone experiences in charge of the military intelligence and I have heard all about your experience. You will do a good job. The Greater Nordics is lucky and blessed to have you here.”
Prince Alexander holds Isabella as he is talking. “We were discussing the civil war in the UK.”
“Yes it is. I agree with the Queens decision to not recognize King Gordon but some of the people in this room don’t”
"Is that why everyone is looking at me? I thought that my presence alone was just so overwhelming that people had to take notice of me. I know how to read a room and I can really tell that some of them don't support that decision. Terrible!"
