Martha and Emilie walked down the winding staircase and turned many corners. Finally they got outside. "Miss, I am to leave you here. I will go to my family in the crowd." "Who exactly is in the crowd, Martha?" "Most of Denmark was invited. They may not all have come though, so don't be nervous." And with that Martha left Emilie.
Emilie suddenly noticed her mom and Josefine on her balcony. She walked over to them. "Why are you guys in such plain dresses?" asked Emilie. "It's tradition so we don't 'outshine' the queen or king." said Josefine. "Mom I haven't seen you so healthy looking in a while." Her mother smiled. "They gave me some helpful medicine. I feel wonderful!"
While they were talking Mr.Andersen appeared. "Please, spread out ladies." Then he turned to the crowd and made Emilie, Josefine and Emilie's mom give a required oath. "Now it's time for the coronation!" exclaimed Mr.Andersen. The crowd roared.
Mr. Andersen continued to speak. "First I will crown Mrs. Rebecca Petersen as the mother of the queen. Mrs.Petersen would you please step forward?" Emilie's mom stepped forward. The crowd cheered as Mr.Andersen crowned her.
Emilie's mom stepped back. Emilie couldn't believe how beautiful her crown looked. She wondered how hers would look. Mr. Andresen started taking again. "Now I will crown Ms. Josefine Petersen as princess and second in line for the crown. Would Josefine please step forward?" Josefine grinned and excitedly stepped forward. Her crowned looked even better than the last as Mr.Andersen crowned her. Then she stepped back.
"Lastly I will crown Ms. Emilie Petersen. Would she please step forward?" Emillie stepped forward. She saw the beautiful crown and smiled when she felt its weight atop her head. "Presenting the queen of Denmark!" Mr. Andersen said. Emilie couldn't believe it. She was queen.
