Kingdom A&S again showed the strength and skill of our artistic community. So many fantastic entries, it really is our credit to our
Laurel community that
such skill has been fostered and helped grow. Congratulations to all the
winners and participants for your hard work and skill.
Thank you to her Grace Adreille for organizing our Vigil. We listened to many words of wisdom and encouragement over the course of the day, and I know that our reign will be stronger because of it. I personally am so happy to be really getting to know the great people of our kingdom. I look forward to meeting and creating connections with as many of our fine populous as I am able.
Graf Sigfried was Elevated into the Order of the Pelican, and we were so pleased to be able to witness his well deserved inclusion into that order. Peerages revolve around the bettering of our kingdom, helping to ensure that the dream continues into the distance future. No other order is so singularly focused on that task, and it is a joyous day when the Pelican ranks swell.
A final thank you to all the event staff for making such a large and successful event happen, especially to the feast staff - the Princess was extremely well fed!
