A princess is more than just the daughter of a monarch. She’s more than just the castles she owns, the estates she lives on and the courts she has to attend. Being a princess is about holding your life to a certain standard, exceeding all expectations and remaining graceful and elegant in the face of adversity. No matter how far away she may go, how lost she may become or how difficult her situation is, a princess still knows exactly who she is.
When she is cast from her land, disgraced and exiled, she does not stoop to the level of those who threw her out - instead she maintains her dignity and holds her head high.
As she wanders into the dark forest, scared by low hanging vines and croaking bullfrogs, she does not slouch or cower. As she makes a fire for herself and sleeps alone in the dark, she pulls her woollen cloak and mittens closer.
And when she returns, clad in white and velvet, confident in herself and ready to take on the world and rule with compassion as her father always inspired her to do, there’s never any question about who she is.
She’s beautiful and sensible, undeniably stylish but still practical in her fashion choices: she wears warm wool, durable cotton and a touch of luxurious velvet.
Being a princess is eternal. No matter what happens, in her heart, a princess will always be a princess.
