Queen Charlotte: We need to discuss the flowers for the wedding.
Prince William: That will not be necessary, Mother, as there'll not be a wedding.
Prince Edward: You forgot something the other day.
Prince William: Our eldest brother, George, the Prince of Wales.
Prince Edward: Prince Regent of England. The man in charge since father's incapacity.
Prince William: The man, according to the Royal Marriages Act of Parliament, with the sole authority to approve any marriage within the royal house. Including ours.
Prince Edward: Only he hasn't approved them. And he will not. He is quite offended, see, that you did not consult him first.
Queen Charlotte: You are right.
Prince William: We are?
Queen Charlotte: I forgot myself. I overstepped. As Prince Regent, the matter rests entirely in the Prince of Wales's hands. He is acting sovereign and ultimate authority.
Prince Edward: Quite right.
Queen Charlotte: Now, Georgie, be a good boy and approve your brothers' marriages.
Prince George: I approve.
