Every day, girls are told that they cannot be princesses. They are reminded that they are not allowed to have dreams.
Well, National Princess Day’s goal is to let girls know that they’re always princesses, whether they’re wearing the crown or not. It’s about embracing everything girlish inside of them & living life to their fullest potential!
So, forget about your problems, stress, and anxiety for just one day. Enjoy yourself and feel free to do and be anything that makes you happy. Whether it’s wearing a tiara or playing dress-up in a princess costume – it doesn’t matter!
When is the Princess Day?
National Princess Day will be celebrated on November 18th, 2021.
National Princess Day History:
Snow White was the first Disney princess to debut on television screens when she first starred as the main character of 1937’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Since then, many other Disney princesses have followed in her footsteps, including Cinderella, Belle, Ariel, Jasmine, and many more.
Each princess had her unique personality, style, and special talents and represented a different type of girl and has helped empower teenage girls worldwide.
In real life, the Princess Royal tag was first given to Princess Mary (born in 1631), daughter of King Charles I.
Currently, Queen Elizabeth II is the longest-reigning current head of state globally, with the current record set by her mother, Elizabeth I. She’s also the longest-reigning monarch, having surpassed the reign of her mother, Elizabeth I.
