He gave him the very best education possible. As soon as the prince could walk, he learnt how to ride, how to swim, how to dance, and he soon became a master in martial arts. He also studied literature, foreign language- he could speak six of them like a native- and science. He could paint and draw he was also fond of music. In short he was a most refined prince and his people, who loved him, called him !rince charming" On the prince#s eighteenth birthday, the king said to the $ueen% &y dearest wife, it is time now for our son to get married.
