The path had been set: De La Salle University, Ateneo de Manila University, and on to Harvard University in the United States.
But Fate often intervenes to veer one’s Life off-course…
Of all the beauties that the Prince had fancied, he decided on the one who was entirely unacceptable. She was a peasant from a distant land.

So the all-powerful uncle suffered for years.
As always, Time healed. But just as it was about to run out.
The All-powerful uncle was slowly but surely dying. While he had entrusted small matters to the Rag Princess, He entrusted the future of the family to the Prince.

And so the Prince took the leadership of the family. But it was really the morganatic wife behind everything, because she completely controlled her Prince.
