About the book:

Elisaveta, the daughter of the Crown Prince of Belsornia, is being sent to the Chalet School by her doctor after a tiresome illness. She is delighted as her greatest wish is to go to school. However, the location of the school is kept a secret as there is a fear that Elisaveta may be in danger from her mad cousin, Prince Cosimo, heir to the throne after Elisaveta's father. At the school, a new Matron has arrived. She soon makes herself unpopular with both the staff and the girls. She invents rules of her own (she stops the girls reading in bed on Sunday mornings, for example), does not call Madge 'Madame' as the rest of the school does, and punishes the girls in her own, unique way. Eventually the Middles, including Elisaveta, form the Society for the Suppression of Matron or SSM. This Society plays various pranks on Matron, all designed to get her to leave the school. Eventually, after many problems and incidents, she is dismissed. Elisaveta also joins the Guides which had recently started at the Chalet. She is enrolled (her father attends her enrolment and is very impressed by the movement) and starts to learn tracking and signalling. For Madame's birthday the school goes to the Zillerthal and it is here that Jo first spots the two strange men........ These two men appear a number of times and convince Elisaveta that they are her bodyguards, requested by Madge to look after her. Eventually, they tell her she must go into hiding for her own safety and take her away. Joey is suspicious (she oveheard something spoken in Russian by one of them) and decides to follow them with Rufus. Madge and Jem Russell get married at the end of the book and go off on their honeymoon. Joey, Juliet and Robin meet them in Firarto, the capital of Belsornia, where Jo is publicly thanked for saving the life of Princess Elisaveta who is now heir to the throne after her father.
