Katherine Duchess of  High-haven  (CR 10 Pahtfinder)

Katherine was bought up a commoner, however, her exceptional singing voice got her noticed, and as a young 9 year old girl she was apprenticed to the High-haven school of dance and song. She became a prominent actress, dancer and bard. When she was 17  Prince William visited one of her shows and became smitten with her beauty and her voice. Later that year they were wed. A little to hasty for some to believe appropriate.

Katherine sometime visits the city incognito with her husband the prince using the disguise skills she learned on the stage.
