Meeting the Princess

Today it was a boring and uneventful day at work. Except than for one thing. When it was almost 5, i.e. almost time to leave, we (me and the other girl who is working on the same project as me) got called from our boss.
The Princess wanted to meet, us, since we just joined the company.
The Princess is the great-grand daughter of the company founder, and the company's current owner. As far as I understand, she got married with a prince, hence her title.
When I met her, the first thing that hit me was her aura of calmness and... I don't know... superiority? I can't say she was too nice, but extremely polite.
I immediately checked what she was wearing (a nice gray bouclé skirt suit, which seemed sewed on her), and what kind of bag she had. I couldn't figure out the maker: it was small, red and very pretty. I can't believe I completely neglected the shoes: I don't remember at all how they were!
As my boss was introducing us, she asked why they hired three (another girl was called in the room, still working on the same project) industrial chemists, when she thought pharmceutical chemists would be better?
Great! Is she gonna get rid of all the three of us?
The boss (who is an industrial chemist herself, and who has worked there for quite a qhile) explained that we do know a lot about materials and so on...
I can't say it was a pleasant encounter. I wonder why she was focussing more on our degree than on the kind of work we were doing!
