This is a little tricky. There are three named female characters; Judith, Lisbeth, and Marguerite, the princess. (The princess is, in the credits, only referred to as "the princess"; however, in a letter she sends her name is stated as being Marguerite). Marguerite asks Lisbeth "do you know who I am?" who replies "my father says 'majesty'" (I.e. my father addresses you as "majesty"). I don't really think this counts as a conversation, so I'd say it doesn't pass.
