The carriage rolled to a stop, the rickety noise now replaced with the more pleasant sound of chatter. Excited, Aishe leaned forward and peered out of the window. Her lips split into a grin as she looked over to her sister, who quite possibly seemed more nervous than excited. She kicked her lightly - more of a teasing nudge with her sandaled foot than an actual kick. All this planning and the day is finally here!
Her grin did not falter as the door opened and the hand of a guard was offered. Accepting it, she stepped out of the carriage and into the bright sunlight, causing her to blink a few times. While her sensitive eyes adjusted, her hands smoothed down her gown
. Her choice of dress offered both a lot of coverage of her skin, while also allowing a good breeze against the heat. She would spend a lot of time in sunlight today and while she was not as sensitive as her sister, it could still cause issues with over-exposure. It was not a pleasant feeling, but she also had an parasol to provide additional shade if she was not feeling well later.
For now, she wanted her hands free as she took her little prince from Amnestria and cradled him close. A few months old now, Prince Anraí was more attentive to his surroundings and they were reaching that wonderful stage of exploration. Not only was this a big event for the kingdom, it was a big event for the royal family. This would be their first official family outing.
A refreshing breeze pulled at the waves of her blonde locks, which was partially braided and twisted up with her crown
perched atop with aquamarine jewel pins holding it all in place. The rest cascaded down her back, nearly to her waist. She was one for being simple, but she was here to represent both her role as queen and as viceroy.
We are going to wander a bit, Mele. Do you want to join or are there any last minute things that need your eyes?
Aishe looked over to Mallory with a raised brow, relishing the fact they had a royal secretary. That meant she could really enjoy today instead of obsessing. It was difficult for her to relinquish control, but with her children around her, it was a good distraction. The distractions would only increase when her spouses joined them. She grinned at her lady-in-waiting, while her two eighteen year old daughters had already wandered to the nearest vendor.
