Storyline

Now Richard's coronation is finally at hand, his jealous sister Eleanor 'confesses' to the archbishop of Canterbury he may be illegitimate, hence not 'elected by God', hoping the PM would pass over prince George. The court buzzes with rumor, and the whole royal family's DNA is tested 'for a rare disease'. George wonders how he should prepare if no longer the spare heir. Rather then betray her lover, Abigail confesses she wrote the revealing book Eleanor is blackmailing her with. The end-game for the crown starts. Written by KGF Vissers
