Crown Jewels

Once upon a time there was a beautiful queen who gave birth to a princess.  The queen loved the princess more than life, and worried every moment that some terrible thing would happen to her (it never did).  The queen was always afraid that the kingdom would come under siege and they would loose everything  (didn’t happen).  But eventually the queen did die, and bequeathed all the jewels that had adorned her body for many years to her beloved child.  The daughter wore the jewelry all the time – it was so beautiful and had belonged to her wonderful mother.  The daughter was always fearful and anxious, usually for no apparent reason – more so every time there was a state dinner, and she wore the crown.  End of story.
