Shelly Fulbright is a fairly distant relative to Queen Victoria. Her father was a Irish Baron, and she was raised in relative luxury.
She married Lord Fulbright of Kensington two years ago and became well known as a grace to the Queen's court. She soon became a regular caller to the Queen herself, as they both share a love for cards and stories of the supernatural.
One month ago, Shelly's husband was killed when he fell from his horse. She has been in mourning since, though she is finally recovering. Long talks with the Queen have helped her, and now she wants to get on with her life.
