The Prince introduces the two women, and the Comtesse is forced to acknowledge Lady Blackeney.

"But the Comtesse, for whom respect of royalty amounted almost to a religion, was too well-schooled in courtly etiquette to show the slightest sign of embarrassment, as the two ladies curtsied ceremoniously to one another."
