|Maggie Hope is assigned to stay with the royal family. As we know from her first appearance in Mr. Churchill's Secretary, Maggie has an undergraduate degree in mathematics from Wellesley and was about to begin studying for a PhD in math at MIT when circumstances brought her instead to war torn Britain. This is mentioned frequently throughout the book. For example, at one point it is stated that her answer to one question on an intelligence test during an application could itself be the basis for an article in a math journal. One notable mathematical reference occurs when she makes a case that young Princess Elizabeth, whom we know is destined to become queen of England, should be educated in math.
