The Queen’s working uniform is a swish silk gown and tiara. Eileen prefers separates, especially when flying (it gets cold up there), and you can always tell something is seriously up if this fairy godmother ever dresses up. The Queen despairs of Eileen’s attitude here. The monarch likes fairy godmothers to look the part rather than looking as if they’ve just come back from a dodgy jumble sale. However of all the issues to argue over with Eileen, this is the least important and the Kingdom has got used to seeing Eileen in trousers and fleecy tops.
Eileen has written several books of good magical practice. She’s also written books criticizing previous fairy royal conduct. Unsurprisingly, those have never made it into the public’s hands. Eileen is not a natural author. She has to force herself to do it “for the greater good” and she gets the words down as quickly as she can. She enjoys the editing process more as she can “control” and cut her words as appropriate. Her textbooks are standard in the fairy schools. Her version of history and the official version often differ. Unsurprisingly it’s not hers that ends up on the curriculum!
