You know, it just occurred to me that Cedric wasn't invited to Rosella's wedding. It would be trivially easy for Shamir the Genie to teleport the bird to the Green Isles. You'd think that with helping* Graham save Rosella and the rest of the family that he would have a really close bond** with them and would often fly over to Daventry to visit***
The royal family must have been so disappointed he didn't come. But they hid their emotions well and didn't seem to miss him.
*By "helping", we obviously mean sitting around "thinking deep thoughts", abandoning Graham whenever he goes somewhere remotely dangerous
, getting captured, warning Graham that he's going to die when it's too late, and pointing out brutally obvious poiiii-sonous snakes
**By "close bond" we mean "annoying relationship testing Graham's patience and sanity.
***By visiting, we are referring to the time he came to Daventry's court
