However, the three have been awarded exciting opportunity to tour the Houses of Parliament, alongside their noisy Headteacher.
Thereafter, during the visit, something peculiar happens when Sufiya’s phone transports her and her new friends to 1911. They seem to arrive ahead of the coronation of George V. In fact, the three have coincided with a time of protest, as suffragettes like Emily Davison. protest for voting rights for women.Then again, Sufiya is surprised to find protestors with brown skin, Indian like her, amongst the crowd, including Lolita Roy. What is this history into which they’ve fallen? What’s more, could it be that this time is more welcoming to her than 2024? Furthermore, could it be true that amongst the suffragists is Queen Victoria’s goddaughter,  Princess Sophia Duleep Singh? Finally, how might the three new friends find a safe way to avoid police detection and return to 2024 before their deadline?
