Every time Henrik left the palace, groups of screaminggirlscrowdswouldyellholler ‘Oh my goodness, it’s him!’ and throw flowers in his general direction.Many of them were very beautiful.Henrik was worried that he would make a baddecision. Hedecided he would ask his brother , Prince Hansfor some advice.  Page 8/9‘The most important thing is to make sure she isareal princess,Prince’Hans said. ‘A real princess is very beautiful and very sensitive. When I met my wife,PrincessEva,Imadeset up the guest bedroom witha stack of twenty mattresses and twenty eiderdowns. Then I put a single pea under the bottom mattress.If a girl complainsMytheory was that if she complainedabout feeling the pea throughthe mattressall thosemattressesand eiderdowns, she must be a real princess.’ ‘DidPrincess Eva shecomplain,’ Prince Henrik asked.  ‘You bet- she ,’ Prince Hans nodded. ‘Shecomplained a lot.’Said Prince Hans Page 10/11‘And that’s good?’Prince Henrik said.1
‘Well it means she’s a
princess,’ his brother replied. ‘The pea kept her awake. Itmeans she’s sensitive.’Prince Henrik wanted to know more. Hedecided tosecretlywatch Princess Eva to see what a real, sensitiveprincess was like.  He found her at the palacetennis court, and she was being sensitive about the tennis balls. (text bubble:

‘I wonder whether Princess Evawas isn’t perhapsa little too sensitive.Page 14/15Prince Henrik decided heWhen he saw Princess Eva yell at Prince Hans because hewas wearing a tie that clashed with her ball gown, he made up his mind. Hedidn’twant to marry a real princess like Princess Eva. He wanted to marry the exactopposite.2
 She didn’t have to bethat beautifulor sensitive..She just had to like hockey and camping and have a nice smile. Page 16/17And so Prince Henrik came up with a plan. Whenever agirlprincesscame to stay, heoffered to make up the guest room. Instead of twenty mattresses, Henrik foundused one thin camping mattress. Instead of twenty eiderdowns, Henrik found one oldsleeping bag. And instead of aonesingle pea, the prince decided to use a whole packetof frozen peas.Page 18/19The test was this. Every time a princess visited, Henrik would sneak into the guestroom and hide the packet of frozen peas under the thin mattress. He figured that if thegirl didn’t mention the frozen peas, it meant she wasn’t too sensitive like Princess Evaand probably would quite like camping.Many younggirlsbeautiesvisited,but none passed the test.
