Hey, whatever happened to romance on Valentine's Day? Even in her own parlor, this Queen can't catch a break from the kids! But maybe I shouldn't be so quick to judge; at least in the 1950s, 'family time' didn't involve video games. And perhaps the Queen will escape her castle, after all—the pearl necklace and little black dress hint at a night on the town.
And they all [including Fido] lived happily ever after.
