ROB HUGHES ADAPTATION AND SCRIPT
Panel 1 Full shot of Lady Maud
Simon and Richard cease their horse-playing
and look up.
Standing in front of them with hands on her hips, looking none-to-pleased,
is LADY MAUD (17)
--a lovely young woman of extraordinary beauty with large, bright
green eyes and long, radiant raven-black hair.
An important woman of the royal court for sure, entrusted with the
sacred duty of watching over her royal charge; the young Prince Richard.
Which is, of course, no easy task.
YOUNG PRINCE RICHARD: Lady Maud!
Both Simon and Richard get to their
feet and bow to her.
YOUNG PRINCE RICHARD: How may the Prince of England be of service
to thee? Thou art surely a Glorious Sight to behold.

YOUNG PRINCE RICHARD (OFF PANEL): The one my mother, the Queen,
has forbidden the privilege of the court.
Maud has been outwitted.
LADY MAUD: Sigh.
(2nd balloon): Come, Richard.
