I suppose my response would be "I go where I am most needed, your Majesty".

A while later HRM Gunthar calls her into Court and someone went into  
the kitchen to get her. There was some banter about where she was  
while we were waiting for her, which of course she didn't hear. She  
walks up before Gunthar and kneels on the carpet in front of Gunthar,  
not wanting to soil the fancy royal kneeling cushion since she is  
soaking wet from her knees down.  Gunthar tells her to please kneel  
on the cushion, since that is what it is there for. Gunthar then asks  
her "Whether it is more important to wash dishes or be in his court".

Of course I know Gunthar from this list, and realize he might have  
been in that kitchen if he hadn't been Crown. I doubt she was.

Kinda a Catch-22 question. So how would *you* answer such a question?
