The Kingdom has had millennia to study humanity’s warlike qualities, its greed, its pollution and the way it abuses the planet. Naturally not every human is like that but the fairy world likes its prejudices as much as any other civilization so focuses on the negative. There’s also a certain amount of the “’we’re so much better than them” syndrome.
Eileen’s marriage works, much to everybody’s surprise, but nobody is prepared to credit that Derek is a rather special human being. Eileen knows that his wonderful gardening skills would be prized in her old world had it not been for his species. She loathes prejudices and to her great credit hates the ones of her own world the most as she feels they’re the ones she can condemn the most.
The Queen believes if she can get Jennifer to come to the Kingdom and stay there for a while, the girl will see the advantages of the magical realm and stay for good. That worries Jenny, as does the renowned Kingdom prejudice against alien beings, but the Queen knows that can be overcome. The Queen has a great deal more influence with her subjects than most monarchs have and she wouldn’t be afraid to use that.
This influence is exploited by the Council at times, especially when it can be used against the likes of the Witch, but they also resent it as it causes difficulties. It’s not unknown for a law they’ve passed to be overturned by her, not just by her using her right of veto but by drumming up public support. What aggravates the Council is knowing they can’t do anything about this, the public would resent it and the Queen would go bananas. A potty monarch with huge power is never a good combination
