Ragtag Daily Prompt: Design

Words like accidental or coincidence rarely applied to events at court. Under the Prime Minister’s watchful eye, ceremonial roles of the crown were never ignored.

Everything was the result of design. Of course, the best laid plans… More often that not, many of the Prime Minister’s little intrigues fell to pieces, leaving him embarrassed. But despite the set-backs, it didn’t stop him from trying and trying.
