In the kitchen of their Chelsea home the impoverished Earl of Dunmow (late Envoy Extraordinary to the Grand Duchy of Monteblanco) and his Countess (aided by the hired 'help', Mrs. Kneebone), are preparing dinner for the Grand Duchess of Monteblanco and her gourmet son Prince Philippe, whom they hope to interest in their daughter Susan. But - are there perhaps too many cooks? - things go wrong. Susan spurns the alluring bit of haute couture which her parents have bought at great sacrifice and the 'Tomatoes Monteblanco' (the projected piÃÂ¨ce de resistance) are ruined. It is at this moment of crisis that the Ducal guests take them by surprise and come in through the backdoor, which happens to be more imposing than the front...
