Under the Queen’s Umbrella Episode 13 Recap
The episode starts with Queen Im Hwa Ryung stunned by news about his son, Grand Prince Muan.
Courtesan Cho Wol whom the riyal have been seeing came to the palace with a child. She wanted to leave the child to the Queen and explained that she couldn't bear the thought that her daughter would live a hard life if the public knew that she is a daughter of a lowly courtesan.
Instead of taking the child away from her mother, the Queen let Cho Wol live in the palace as one of the courtesans.
On the other hand, Grand Prince Muan promised to raise his daughter on his own but admitted that he finds it challenging. However, the Queen saw how eager he is to raise her daughter, and with that, she revealed that Courtesan Cho Wol is working for her.
Interestingly, one of the highlights of episode 13 is the Crown Prince’s relationship with the newly hailed Crown Princess.
Rumor sparked that they did not sleep together after the wedding ceremony. What’s worse is that the Crown Princess was seen leaving at one of her brother-in-law's quarters.
From the royal’s marriage, the Queen and Seongnam found something about the late Crown Prince’s death.
Seongnam unexpectedly found a piece from his medical records stating that he started to cough blood after receiving acupuncture treatment from Royal Physician Kwon.
With this, the Queen and Seongnam think that Royal Physician Kwon might have a connection with the Crown Prince’s death.
As for her plan, the Queen reinstated Kwon’s position in the palace and returned as one of the royal physicians.
In addition, Seongnam found out that master Toji, the one he got the medicine to treat the Crown Prince, is the assistant of the physician who looked after the late Crown Prince Taein. He said that he vanished because he was afraid that the palace would kill him but insisted that there is nothing wrong with his prescription.
On the other hand, Seongnam was stunned at Master Toji’s revelation upon seeing the autopsy report of his brother. He said that it is too similar to the report of Crown Prince Taein, hinting that the method of killing was also the same as his brother.
