This upbeat, resolute song is featured in the Her Rebel Highness package and is performed by all three princesses. Princesses Gwendolyn and Victoria begin the song by trying to console Princess Antonina, whose kingdom has been occupied by Queen Lucinda. The latter princess soon rallies and sings a stunning operatic solo in the bridge, in which her voice is intended to sound like an angelic instrument in the orchestra.

This introspective, romantic ballad is featured in the Her Rebel Highness Package and is performed by Princess Gwendolyn after her betrothed, King Frederick, catches her off guard with a surprisingly heartfelt and gentile proposal of marriage, which to her surprise, affects her immensely. The highly spirited princess has been putting the wedding off for years and years, but her suitor’s sudden display of affection and chivalry, makes her reconsider her actions.

This instrumental piece is featured in the Her Rebel Highness package and is danced to by Queen Lucinda of Zeylon. She inherited the throne but 2 weeks ago and is wasting no time in letting it be known that she is indeed a force to be reckoned with. Her ambition has no limits, therefore she is determined to make Zeylon a world power. The formidable queen exhibits great power when dancing in the style of flamenco, which exemplifies drama and passion.
