The King of Naples was almost as much astonished at the beauty and excellent graces of the young Miranda, as his son had been. “Who is this maid?” said he; “She is the daughter to this Prospero, who is the famous Duke of Milan, of whose renown I have heard so much, but never saw him till now: of him I have received a new life: he has made himself to me a second father, giving me this dear lady,” said Ferdinand.
“No more of that,” said Prospero: “let us not remember our troubles past, since they so happily have ended.” And then Prospero embraced his brother, and again assured him of his forgiveness.
Prospero now told them that their ship was safe in the harbour, and the sailors all on board her, and that he and his daughter would accompany them home the next morning.
Before Prospero left the island, he dismissed Ariel from his service, to the great joy of that lively little spirit.
The King of Naples was almost as taken aback by Miranda's beauty as his son had been. When the King of Naples saw her, he inquired who this attractive lady was. Ferdinand later revealed that she was the daughter of Prospero, the famous Duke of Milan. Furthermore, he stated that he had previously heard of him but had not had the opportunity to meet him. Later, he stated that this gentleman had given him his life back. Prospero had become his second father by giving his lovely daughter to him.

Prospero then stated that there is no need for them to recall previous events. Furthermore, he stated that everything had come to a happy conclusion. Prospero hugged his brother once more, assuring him of his forgiveness. Prospero later informed them that their ship and all of the sailors on board were safe at the harbour and that he and his daughter would be joining them in the morning.
Before leaving the island, Prospero dismissed Ariel from his service. He dismissed him because Ariel had played an essential role in bringing his brother and the King of Naples to this island. Prospero released Ariel with great gladness, and the little spirit joyfully left the place.
