Synopsis

In The Princess and the Pea,  the prince journeyed around the world searching for a princess to marry, but with every encounter something seemed to be wrong. So he returned to his castle at last, footsore and heartsick. Until one night during a storm, a beautiful girl came knocking, claiming she was a princess. The queen was doubtful, so she placed a tiny pea underneath twenty mattresses, knowing that only a true princess would be able to feel it. The next morning when the girl exclaimed that she had slept terribly – that it felt like she had a rock in her bed – the kingdom knew that she was indeed a real princess, and she and the prince lived happily ever after.
