The maid further extorts a vow from the real princess that she will never tell a living soul what has happened, on threat of death. Once they arrive in the prince's kingdom, the false princess says that Falada was a very ill-tempered mount and demands that he be executed so he can't speak up and reveal the truth. She also wants the true princess nowhere near her, and says that the king can make her whatever sort of servant he pleases.
The true princess, grieving for Falada's death, manages to persuade the groom to have the horse's head mounted above one of the palace gates where she can still see it every day.
The true princess is so lovely and delicate that no one can bear to give her hard work, so they send her out with the goose boy. In the morning and in the evening, she sighs over her horse's head and it responds. During the day, she tries to comb her hair, but it looks so much like real gold that the goose boy is convinced that it is , and tries to steal some; she uses a little rhyme to summon the wind to blow the goose boy's cap away, making him chase it and letting her comb her hair in peace.
After three days of this, the goose boy complains that he won't work with her any more, and his report catches the ear of the king who is not at all impressed with the false princess. He approaches the goose girl, but she is bound by her promise not to speak of her misfortunes to any living creature - so he kindly suggests that she unburden herself to the iron stove in the palace kitchen.
While she does that, the king sneaks up to the roof and listens at the chimney in order to hear the truth.
Now aware of the deception, the king sends the true princess to the royal household to be dressed properly, and then he brings her to a great banquet. She makes so fine an appearance that even the false princess does not recognize her. The king asks the guests what sort of punishment would be fitting for someone who has deceived everyone around them, and proceeds to describe the situation in a way that does not reveal anyone's identity.
