Previously he had been having an affair with his true love, Charlotte, who later marries Adam, Maggie’s father, and the lives of the four become mixed up in one family. The Prince and Charlotte soon continue their affair unaware that there are others who know of their actions. The story comes to a startling and dramatic finale as the adulterous affair is brought to light.
