We arrived at the Palace few days after and we were welcomed by my mom, dad and other important royal cabinet members.
My mom couldn’t stop gushing about Vanessa and her grandchild. I knew how much it was difficult for her to accept that the relationship between her and I might change after my biological mother had surfaced, still I didn’t let it bother me.
We were eating at the dining table when one of my uncles started up a conversation that he couldn’t finish.
“When are you going to meet up with your mother Richard?” Uncle Thomas was a distant relative. He was more of dad’s childhood friend than family. Even though I never had any string attached to him or any of his families, I had to respect him and knew he had to know his boundaries too.
“My mother is right here, so what are you talking about?” I purposely said that as I understood his question very well.
