Rapunzel returned to the kingdom with Flynn by her side. By now, everyone had heard about the return of the long-lost princess. (The thugs from the tavern were not exactly a quiet group, especially when it came to (一说到) romance.)
Clutching Flynn’s hand, Rapunzel followed a royal escort (护送者) to the palace. Soon they entered the throne room (王座室).
Rapunzel heard a voice that seemed far away but actually was quite close. A royal guard was addressing (向…说话) her parents: “Your Majesties (陛下), this way. There she is!”
And then she saw them: the King and Queen. Rapunzel looked into their eyes. She knew. Their love seemed overwhelming (极强烈的), filling the room and Rapunzel’s heart.
Flynn, too, felt overcome with emotion (激动极了) as he stood back and watched. Rapunzel, with her emerald-green eyes, looked exactly like her beautiful mother. As for the King, his eyes, aged (变老) by years of worrying about his daughter, suddenly brightened (发亮).
Unable to hold herself back (控制自己), the Queen rushed to Rapunzel and held her tight. After a moment, the King joined them. Weeping with joy (喜极而泣), the King and Queen knew, just as Rapunzel did. Their daughter, their precious child, had come home at last.
It did not take long for word to spread throughout (传遍) the kingdom. A joyous (快乐的) celebration ensued (随之而来). The people of the kingdom did what they had done for eighteen years, launching a thousand lanterns and then joining together in the palace courtyard to dance for—and this time with—their beloved (深爱的) princess.
And after that? They all lived happily ever after (从那以后).
