Hey you beautiful creature,
Hopefully, you won’t find me too stuck up for the title above but I have a couple of old family friends with me and one of the family friends asked me if I remembered when I used to call myself Princess Alexandra of Genovia? Straight away my mother remembered the entire scene of that day wearing princess gowns that my aunt made me of purple tulle and a white bodice since I could never wear a child dress up costume which was berserk because I was a tall child.
Even though Harry Potter Series by J.K.Rowling moulded my childhood but also The Princess Dairies by Meg Colbot made my childhood too including all the princess movies.
I got so into the princess diaries books and the entire movie franchise that I wanted to become Princess Mia, that I had a skirt suit thing that was pink that matched Princess Mia’s in The Princess Diaries 2 : Royal Engagement. I still try to match my style like to Mia to this day where I am still second guessing about having purple hair because she is my style icon even though I am plus sized. I even had a cat called Lady fat Louise (I thought she was a bloke and neutered) then I am really close to my grandmother too.
Anyway, we watched it with the two younger girls that the family friends have and they both went how much they wanted to be a princess and I remembered a line from another princess book called A Little Princess which went like and quoted to them “I am a princess. All girls are. Even if they live in tiny old attics. Even if they dress in rags, even if they aren’t pretty or smart, or young. They’re still princesses.” They both smiled even though the three-year-old had no idea what I was talking about. Either way, Frances Hodgson Burnett is one of my favourite writers.
Anyway, back on topic, I gave the 9-year-old daughter in hoping she knows that she’s a princess. Every girl is.
Loads of love,
