Harry responded to that with a smile, genuinely appreciative of the prince's offer; yet, at the same time, inevitably distracted by the movement around them. Harry's eyes flickered from the prince to a point behind him, the smile only barely stiffening up back into politeness.
The two young men had crossed the across the courtyard on their on, yet, as they approached the gate, Harry became witness to what was undoubtedly a practiced dance.
The royal advisor, now on his horse, and a guard fell into line with them, the horses at a relaxed walk; behind the prince, another man flanked them, and Harry had no doubt in his mind that another was behind him as well.
Doing some attempt into softening the gesture, Harry turned slightly to glance between him and the prince, meeting the eye of two other guards kicking their horses to a walk. When one acknowledged Harry's gaze with a nod, Harry returned it with a smile.
The smile remained on his lips as his eyes finally found the prince's, as they exited through the gates. "How often do you visit the city, your Highness?"

Being unable to leave the castle without at least two armed guards with him at all times had been a part of Draco’s life for as long as he could remember. It wasn’t something he actively thought about anymore and while he was pretty good at ignoring the fact that he was as guarded as he was, it was still something that bothered him most of the time.
The conversation with Harry helped distract him further though and he was deeply thankful that the Greek seemed very keen on talking. It was pleasant and Draco could feel himself relax when he could focus on their guest, rather than the guards surrounding them.
“Not as often as I’d like,” he said with a warm smile, deciding to just focus on talking with their guest for now. “As you can tell, it’s quite a show when I have to go to the city.”

There was some comfort in knowing that the prince was aware of the severity of his escort; whether or not he found it excessive, Harry couldn't tell, but even if the comment was only added for Harry's sake, he still appreciated the gesture.
"Do you feel like that affect it?" Harry asked, interested enough to tread lightly around what was possibly a sensitive subject. There was a soft and reassuring smile still on his lips. "The way you experience the city."
Harry had knowingly skipped the first half of their conversation, not seeing the point in pretending they had been raised under comparable circumstances. Harry knew well enough that monarchies tended to shelter their heirs from harm, and seeing as the King and Queen only had one son, Harry wasn't bold enough to disagree with their decision to have the prince escorted when he left the keep.

Despite the heavy surveillance Draco was under, he still felt like he could talk slightly freer with Harry than he was usually able to. He still made sure to keep his tongue, not wanting to accidentally let anything slept in the company of his father’s advisor, but he still wanted Harry to know the truth.
“I can’t see how it couldn’t,” was what he left it at, not talking too loudly. He knew that it would be frowned upon if he made it too clear that he didn’t enjoy the escort, but Harry seemed to have picked up on it on his own, so he just had to hope that they were actually on the same page.
“I do what I can to come out and meet my people where they are anyway, but it is not easy.”

Harry only nodded at that, having figured as much. He hadn't dared assume whether or not the prince was aware of the inevitable distance armed guards created to the prince and his people; Harry was pleasantly surprised to hear that the prince kept that as part of his considerations.
"How about your father, His Majesty the King?" Harry continued. Around them, ordinary buildings took shape. It was only a matter of time before Harry's attention was caught by the foreign architecture and people, turning to look as they passed.
"How often does he visit his people?" Harry added after his distracted pause, eyes darting back to the prince, wanting to still encourage and engage in conversation.

Draco did find that question to be one that was tough to answer. He didn’t think very highly of the king himself, so it was difficult for him to just not write him off in wrong of their guest, but he also knew that that would be a bad move from him and very out of tone, so he was going to have to find a more diplomatic way to put that.
“He doesn’t enjoy the show,” was all he managed to say, knowing that Bartholomew was right in front of them and was probably hanging on to every single word that Draco was saying. He loved to find any way to punish the prince.

Harry hummed at that, able to patch together a sufficient answer. Harry hadn't found the king to be much involved with the tending of his guests, and the notion that he wasn't one to visit his people didn't surprise Harry.
However, he also noted as he turned to glance down another far more interesting sidestreet, Harry knew that that didn't necessarily mean he was an unfit ruler.
As they advanced through the city, the street began to widen, eventually leading into a paved plaza. Here, the striking beauty of the cathedral was undeniable, though the grandiour of the architecture still felt foreign to Harry.
"My prince, sire -" Bartholomew called ahead of them. He turned his horse, urging it to circle around itself in order to flank the prince. "The Cathedral of Jean Baptiste."

The cathedral was a very familiar place to Draco. It had been one of the few places he had been allowed to go as a child and teen and it had been a kind of a safe space for him while growing up and it was a nice idea that he would get to share that with a foreign guest, even if he knew that it wouldn’t be quite the same to Harry as it was to him.
“Thank you, Bartholomew,” he said with a polite but curt smile. He wasn’t much interested in having Bartholomew around more than what was absolutely necessary, but he knew that his presence was a necessary evil on this trip.
“This is one of my favourite places,” he told Harry, his tone much softer and sweeter when talking to Harry.
