This weekend, Disney will officially welcome Rapunzel as the 10th Disney Princess character at a high profile, star-studded celebration, to take place in front of a global audience on October 2, 2011.
Little princesses from across the globe will watch Rapunzel be welcomed into the Disney Princess royal court by Ariel, Aurora, Belle, Cinderella, Jasmine, Mulan, Pocahontas, Snow White and Tiana. Celebrities such as Nicole Richie and her family, as well as chef Jaime Oliver will attend.
In a world first, Kensington Palace, London, UK, was chosen by Disney as the perfect location for this magical welcoming ceremony of a Disney Princess, as it has been the home of many real life princesses over the centuries.
Disney selected one U.S. family from Centreville, V.A., who entered and won a “Princess Moment” video contest, to go on a dream vacation to attend the event in London. Along with their mother, Laurie Senio, the three little girls, Allie (age 8), Sammie and Katie (age 3), will attend this weekend’s festivities. The family will also join more than 100 other little princesses from across the globe as they take part in all the festivities, including a procession through Kensington Park, party activities and a welcoming ceremony.
