Two of my family’s favorite movies are “The Princess Diaries” and “The Princess Diaries 2.” In the first movie, a teenager named Mia Thermopolis finds out that she is a real princess. Her grandmother, Queen Dowager Clarisse Renaldi, is portrayed by Julie Andrews. The queen transforms the rather plain and clumsy Mia into a princess. At first Mia wears dumpy looking clothes and has glasses. She sheds the glasses, changes her hair, and becomes elegant.
I think every little girl would love to find out that she is a princess dressed to perfection in a rare editions dress or an evening gown. Even if Mia’s story can’t come true, there is no reason that a girl of any age can’t act, dress, and behave like a princess. In the second movie, Mia tells a group of children that all each little girl in the group needs to do is believe she is a princess and act like one. What wonderful advice!
