((Sure, here goes nothing!))Eleanor walked into the royal chambers, almost as thought Christians words were a cue for her to enter. For a moment she noticed nothing, not realizing that there was an entirely new person standing in her room. She looked over at the girl briefly before freezing in spot. As usual her posture was perfect and her manners still in place, however that's not to say she wasn't surprised by this supposed visitor. "Well, hello." She said, making sure it didn't just seem as though she was staring. "What, may I ask, is your business here?" Eleanor questioned, glancing over at her husband, wondering what part he played in all this.
Eleanor nodded, giving the slightest of curtsies to acknowledge her husbands greeting before accepting the gifts from Kimberly. "It's a pleasure to meet you!" Eleanor spoke, the words coming out like silk. If she knew anything it was that foreign rulers were to be treated well, it wasn't too uncommon for them to have traditions that make you come off in a bad light if you aren't careful. "I'm glad to hear that you'll be visiting, I'm sure I can set up a room for you somewhere." She told Kimberly politely. She sat down in a chair that was next to a desk in the corner of the room, taking a moment to better examine what she had been given, the necklace was clearly unique, it had similarities to things she had seen before, but it wasn't able to be placed in any categories Eleanor knew too well. "I appreciate the gift, thank you and thank whoever made it as well." She requested, deciding that such an attention to details could brighten the view of an alliance in the view of those in lower classes as well. She skimmed over the letter to get an idea as to what exactly was being asked of them. Amongst the things in the letter one part stood out to her and that was the piece about finding someone to court Kimberly. Eleanor had several ideas, but she thought it best to find out about what she herself wanted as well. As far as the rest of it went she was mentally working out how to sort it all out already. "Well, there is a good deal of information, but I think I can more than manage, I assume you both know about it and I would like to hear what you think of it." She told them, wanting to find what they thought of it all. Collecting all related information would make it easier to make the most logical decision possible after all.
Eleanor sighed, "I suppose I could have specified more so, I was asking about all the things as a whole, a compilation of opinions in short." She explained calmly, mentally chiding herself on not being specific enough. "I pertained of many things, don't feel the need to go into great detail, but please, do tell me what you think of it all, your opinions could prove invaluable at a later date." Eleanor informed them, hoping that she got her point across this time. She understood the idea of an arranged marriage however one had to be suited to the person, whilst you can whittle away at someone to make them suit someone it wouldn't work if they were different types of wood all together.
Eleanor listened intently to Kimberly, soaking in everything she was told. The girl was clearly intelligent and polite enough to hold a title of royalty which boded well for her kingdom. The queen knew what types of things her kingdom would need and would gladly provide them what she could. It would be difficult to balance considering the situation of Kortana, but an ally could prove all the more vital than any supplies they would be giving away. When it came to the idea of courting however, it was more difficult, Eleanor herself had something arranged from just about birth so the idea of a true romance was alien to her so she didn't fully understand Kimberly's thoughts on the situation. The information would definitely prove invaluable as she could at least try to find someone Kimberly might like and therefore better persuade her to go along with it. Upon the reveal of Kimberly's ability Eleanor took it unto herself to ask her more about it later, but before she could speak again Christian popped in with merely the word wonderful. She gazed at him, her expression conveying confusion quite clearly. "W-wonderful, yes..." She began slightly unsure, thinking of a way to make her husband not seem like a fool. "I'm sure you will be able to fit right in then! Our children have abilities as well, perhaps you'd get along with them, I believe Maidlin is about your age!" She chirped, trying to play it off as something simple. "As for the courtship, I will do my best to find you someone you can at least call a friend and rest assured, I will of course arrange everything to do with sending aid to your kingdom." Eleanor told her tilting her head slightly to the side and offering a loving smile. "Feel free to ask any questions, you have our full focus" She said, looking over at Christian, emphasizing the word focus. Eleanor turned back to Kimberly patiently awaiting anything the young girl had to say.
Eleanor payed close attention, just in case her husband wasn't she knew the basic things she would have to set up, rooms and perhaps someone to check in with them all, but that would be no issue so she knew she wouldn't have great difficulty attending to what was asked of them. When Christian offered to assist Kimberly she was quite surprised, she didn't expect him to want to take care of that himself, but he did. "Well of course you can, dear." She told him politely, having an understanding of the fact that he was king and in the end his decisions held more weight. "Perhaps you could show her around a bit first, I need to properly set up a room, dusting and the such, but it shouldn't take long. As for the guards I'll have one of ours show them to where they can stay, if we run out of space I'm sure my father would gladly host the overflow." She explained, telling them all the things about accommodations. Eleanor highly doubted there would be any overflow, the barracks were made to fit more soldiers than Kortana had, but she knew that if there were any excess the Wyndham family castle would have more than enough space for anyone else. It also made the kingdom seem somewhat more welcoming, even if only slightly so.
((There's one, it was the first one and is still ongoing in the throne room and I would assume you should request a bedroom in the castle, yes, unless you don't plan on having any role-plays occur there))
Eleanor sighed, he was childish at heart, but it was endearing in truth. "Be careful and don't get lost" She told them sweetly. She doubted they would get lost, but it was the thing expected to be said in such a situation, or at least that was what she was raised to believe. She shifted in her seat to begin writing a few things down for later relating to the letter. "Oh, and don't go into the throne room for a few minutes, it's being cleaned and I'd rather that be done with quickly." She warned them seriously. She was very particular about how well kept the castle had to be and efficiency as well, so it was important to her that it got done properly.
