Our Royal Interview with Prince Klaus
Firstly, The Parliament House just wanted to thank Prince Klaus for showing up to grace us with his royal presence for this majestic interview...
[ph] If we had to ask members of your palace to describe you in less than ten words, what would they say?
[pk] Lord Crestwood would say just, perhaps? Willful, stubborn. . . he often says I’m foolish because of my ideals about love. Adelais would say I’m kind, playful and good. I’ve heard from time to time that my people think I’m brave but . . . ‘too young to rule.’ As for Aurelia, I hope that she thinks I’m kind and understanding. . .

I have Adelais, one of my loyal servants. When I was younger, she acted as a nursery maid. And then there’s also Lord Crestwood. While he’s my close advisor, he’s also my most trusted friend. Of course, there is also Aurelia now. . . whom I admire and have grown to love deeply.
[ph] What are some struggles you face while being a future King?
[pk] Listening to the right sort of people is definitely a struggle any Royal has to face. Listening to the right sort of advice. Many people around you are trying to benefit themselves and not the King … or their country. I struggle keeping the balance of their own personal gain, and doing right by Saarland der Licht. It’s hard to do the things that one . . . simply doesn’t
