19/04/1469 Monarchy Candidate - Zulita

The KAP endeavored to interview each of the candidates for the English Monarch elections, each of the candidates has replied so far, and their answers will be published in separate articles.

The same questions were asked to all candidates who we had access to. All candidates were approached at the same time. They chose which questions to answer. Interviews will be published in order of when the candidates responded. Answers will be published as written by the candidates provided they do not violate the guidelines of the KAP Charter.

I now bring you an interview with Candidate for the throne, Lady Zulita Palidor Westbrooke Dorchester.

Q: Tell us about your family history?
A: “I grew up as a Palidor and was very close to my stepfather, William. However, I didn’t know he was my stepfather then. He was a physician and had notebooks filled with entries and drawings of his work. I actually have one tucked away in my drawer back home. He’s the reason I decided to study medicine. It wasn’t until a few years ago I discovered my biological father was Gabriel Westbrooke, who I know very little about.”

"My sister, Aerietta, takes after our mother, Isabella, in many ways. She's elegant, kind, and creative. Although, she refuses to admit it. Eliodren, my brother, is one of the kindest souls you could meet. Since our parents disappeared, he has looked after me and Aeri. And although Castle is my cousin, I consider him my brother. I have never met anyone more selfless."

"I have been fortunate to see my family grow, especially within the past year. Last August, I married my sweet husband, King Richy, and although he passed shortly thereafter, the Dorchesters took me in as their own. We will also be welcoming a new addition to our family soon."

Q: Is there a previous monarch that you identify with in particular?
A: "Without a doubt, my late husband, King Richy Dorchester. I was there with him every step of the way. I saw his struggles and his triumphs. He had such a strong love of England, which is something we share."

Q: Do you intend to tour everywhere? Or how else will you decide how to split your time in England?
A: "I do intend to tour everywhere! It’s one of the things I look forward to the most, if I’m so lucky to be elected. I want to spend some time in each town to get to know their history, the people, and hear their suggestions and concerns."

Q: What is your approach to conflict and can you give an example of conflict resolution?
A: “There is no single way to resolve a conflict. Different situations require different solutions. However, I have personally learned that trying to look at a situation from another’s point of view, and understand that point of view, can give you perspective. Most people don’t cause trouble just for the sake of causing trouble, but have reasoning behind the way they act. Also, civil and rational communication is key to resolving these conflicts, and we will do our best to facilitate these conversations."

Q: What kind of leadership experience do you have?
A: "I’m a former Public Liaison for the Mercia Awards Society, Lieutenant Commander for the Mercia Regiment, Mayor of Worcester and Arundel, various roles in the Mercian Council, and Royal Secretary for both King Richy and King Morat."

Q: What specific virtues do you hope people know you for and why?
A: "I would like to be known for the qualities that make a good leader. I hope to demonstrate kindness, selflessness, humility, thoughtfulness, courage, honesty, and determination."

Q: Tell us what type of person do you see supporting you?
A: "I think the people who would be most inclined to support me are the quiet contributors of our community; those who uphold their values and care for the genuine welfare of England."

Q: Tell us what type of person you are looking for in your privy and royal administration in general?
A: “So often, privy councilors are chosen for the votes they will bring. but that’s not how I am choosing my administration. I am looking for those who have demonstrated their capabilities and ambition. Not political ambition, but ambition to make England the best it can be. I am also looking for individuals who know their own mind, and won’t bow to my opinions just because I am queen.”

Q: Tell us something you do to make yourself feel better when stressed, sad or otherwise upset?
A: "My family is my strength and has never failed to make me feel better when I’m upset. But if they aren’t around, I usually find myself stress-eating cookies. That has a nearly similar therapeutic effect. "

Q: How do you feel about mushrooms?
A: "I’m particularly fond of mushrooms, but it’s especially important to have a reputable mushroom dealer, since they have been known to kill people."

Q: What is one specific project that you as monarch intend to personally focus on?
A: "I will be directing a lot of my attention on our nation’s security, defense, and strengthening our bonds with Scotland. With the recent threats posed to England, I feel this is the most important area."

Q: What is your least favorite thing in the world? What is your most favorite thing?
A: "My favorite thing in this world? Easy. Cookies! My least favorite thing would be a lack of cookies..."

Q: Where can people find your platform?
A: "My platform can be found in the London Commons, in my campaign tent!"

Q: What is the best way for the general public to get answers if they have more questions?
A: "To visit my campaign tent in the London Commons or to write me a private message!"
