The Queen Mother

She planned well for the future.

The Queen Mother sat quietly as her daughter, the newly crowned monarch, presided over her first meeting of Parliament. She remembered her own first time, following the death of her husband the King. She knew her daughter was nervous, but also saw that she was doing well.

She smiled to herself as she watched her daughter shut down one very conservative Lord with grace and tact, without letting go of her rightful authority. She realized how much her daughter had learned from her father and even herself.  Cinderella knew she could retire now, leaving her people in very capable hands.
