Boundaries were not what Camber and Jilly Bean were au fait with when ensconced in Ann-Judy’s bedroom. They could run amok. They were at liberty to do what they liked, when they liked and how they liked for quite frankly Jellatine was in a lingering depression over the long lost love of her life and didn’t care less what wild shenanigans ensued. However, once installed at the Royal Tower a sense of decorum was certainly demanded by order of the Queen. Jilly Bean is constitutionally kind of rubbery and bouncy and her favourite sporting activity is to leap randomly off the top of the canopy bed, which houses Marzipan Mansion and bounce back up again (bungee jumping without the bungee chord) terrifying the living daylights out of the resident boudoir dolls. This unruly past time was soon curtailed by the Queen, partly because it upset the shattered nerves of the boudoir populace and partly because it upset her darling Prince, who wasn't bouncy and therefore couldn't partake of this daring and thrilling antic. Whenever Jilly Bean brazenly jumped over the edge of the nursery garden in front of Prince Camembert he would dissolve into floods of dry tears. His face would pathetically crinkle up into such a pitiful pouting affair as he dramatically sobbed: “It’s so not fair!” that it gave his mother despair hair, that doo that looks part electrocution part bird-nest style. She couldn't bear to see her son so aggrieved, so being the Queen she resolved an official plan to shepherdess the bouncy tot and duly appointed three nanny cum housekeepers for Marzipan Mansion.
These new members of staff were identical triplets, so identical in fact, that it's impossible to tell them apart so they share a name: Veronica-Rose-Marie. They are three exceedingly worn and scuffed stuffed hedgehogs who'd started life very much like the fluffy plump similar versions from the Steiff collection available at Hamleys Toy Store of London (see first pic), but had been treasured and loved to the point of threadbare. They were 'owned' by a set of triplets named Charlotte, Elizabeth and Diana decades ago. Nobody could really tell the little girls apart either, but they could easily tell each other apart and only they could really tell their hedgehogs apart. The sisters dragged their Cudbuds everywhere with them every day, doing pretty much the same thing, so over the course of their lives the hedgehogs had aged identically. One would think that they might want to try and look a bit different from one another, but no, they always dressed and behaved exactly alike. One for all, all for one so a collective name it was. The triplets, Charlotte, Elizabeth and Diana had adored the gardens and kitchen potager at the stately home they grew up in and as a result the hedgehogs had developed a similarly keen interest in all things green. They therefore very much encouraged Jilly Bean and the little Prince to love seeds and be involved with those that Libertine was germinating in the garden beds of Marzipan Mansion. As for Grickle-grass and Truffula trees, well they are shall we say a minor paroxysm!
