Princess Olivia's half-sister Mia is very busy learning how to take over the country while trying to plan a wedding, and her father is actually getting remarried himself -- to Mia's mother! -- and spends most of his time "renovating" the summer palace, although Grandmere says he is just hiding from the wedding preparations. Just when Olivia starts to think that things are going to work out after all, the palace is invaded by a host of new cousins and other royals who all seem to be angry at Olivia (although Grandmere says they are just jealous).
