All Little Girls are Princesses

Just yesterday afternoon, I overheard my daughter telling her nanny that she is a princess. Every time she has a chance to announce it, she would tell me and her Daddy that she is a princess. In fact, she adores princess dolls (Sleeping Beauty is her favorite), Disney princesses, princess games and all things princess.

I am reminded of the beautiful movie released in 1995- A little Princess. The conversation below would always remain in memory:

Miss Minchin: Don’t tell me you still fancy yourself a princess? Child, look around you! Or better yet, look in the mirror.
Sara Crewe: 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. All of us. Didn’t your father ever tell you that? Didn’t he?

Don’t you believe that it too?
