Igor and His Princess

A nice little puzzle.

RAY: ... Here it is. I didn't change much. The beautiful young princess had a dilemma. She was in love.

TOM: Now, you think I didn't remember this.

RAY: I knew you remembered. Of course, I did. She was in love with Igor, a blacksmith's son and a hunchback, but she wanted to marry him anyway. However, she knew that her father, the King, would not approve. Moreover if the King knew of their love, he would surely have the young man executed. Wouldn't he?
