    what would be the point of a ball. Since there's no kids yet (and the Queen in her 6 month of being pregnant) and the King&Queen are married. I mean the event is a cover up for what is actually was being talked about in the room. when the queen came into her room.

    A State dinner, a medal ceremony, signing treaties or proclamations, granting titles, parades (including those intended to showcase the military might of the kingdom)...

    half of that the stuff the Queen wouldn't need to attend like a state meeting (unless her husband, the TRUE king, wants her there since the land of Ellabur is King Alexander's Kingdom not Anne's kingdom)

    Masquerade ball to honor an aristocrat or someone special from overseas, military ball for the troops, opening ceremony of a theater/museum/attraction, opening of a foundation, groundbreaking, wedding of different family member.

    Basically *anything* can be an event if they want it to be. A celebration can be thrown for absolutely anything. Pick a random small plot point or give one to a more minor character the royals like, and have them blow it all out of proportion for them. :p

    Think of a ball as a party on the surface, but beneath that it is a dance of power and loyalties, conspicuous displays of wealth and ploys to gain favor among the royals and the nobility.

    That's all the more reason for the event to be ridiculous and made up 10 minutes before they needed it. :p Why wait 6 months for the Queen's birthday when you can turn some guy in the court buying a new hat into an all-night shindig that very day?

    A Royal event is ANY event sponsored, held, endorsed or attended by any member of the Royal family.

    Any celebration, birthday, war victory, marriage, unveiling a public monument or art project, treaty signing, honors given, etc.

    Any non celebration remembrance of national sacrifice, memorial service for the war dead, call for charity to send aid to drought/earthquake/hurricane ravaged colonies or dramatic change in law (workers rights/civil rights/etc.)

    This. ^ :) A king could abruptly decide to go ice skating in winter and it would be considered a royal event.

    And don't forget about jousts, gladiator tournies, medival fairs, a royal hunt, celebrating the birthday of a nation/city or noble, even holding a session of congress/parliament/court.

    A beheading! No show better than a beheading.

    How about a religious holiday? Perhaps they have some made up polytheistic religion or something.

    If it's truly a cover-up, then it could be something totally random. For example, if it were a holiday, perhaps it's a holiday no one ever celebrates, which raises some suspicions with more clever characters.

    If you really want a wedding, it could be the marriage of the King's/Queen's younger sibling (who, until the baby is born may even be the heir to the throne).
