Today I want to talk about Princes. From a young, young age, little girls are taught about the Princes. “Someday My Prince Will Come.” “Kiss a frog, you might find a prince.” I just want to ask, where are all these Princes?
Obviously America is not a monarch nation. So we don’t actually have any of the Princes over here. And while we know they do exist, what is the point of dreaming of Princes? Yes, if you dream it it can happen. Believe all things. Dream all things. I don’t believe in limiting the imagination. But I just wonder about this Prince thing. Is it purely an invention of the House of Mouse? Or have girls been dreaming of Princes for far longer than we know?
In Europe and many other nations, dreaming of Princes is definitely a valid thing. They have them over there. They’ve had them over there for a very long time. So it makes sense that little girls and little boys might dream of handsome princes. I’ve never been one to dream of Princes. Sure, I have my favorite Disney Princes (we’ll get into that later.) But it was never an actual dream of mine to marry a Prince. If the Princess Diaries and The Prince and Me taught us anything, it’s that Princessing is really hard work. I’d have to fall hard for a Prince to want to take up a crown.
But, just for fun, let’s take a look at the Princely options today’s world has to offer. These are the, as yet, unmarried Princes.
Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid al Maktoum of Dubai
Hussein Bin Abdullah, Crown Prince of Jordan
Prince Philippos of Greece and Denmark
Prince Wenzeslaus of Liechtenstein
Prince Sebastien of Luxembourg
Prince Albert of Thurn and Taxis
Prince Nicholas of Romania
Prince Joachim of Belgium
Prince Lorenzo Borghese
Prince Harry of Wales (Hubba, Hubba, if I’m being honest!)
Prince Azim of Brunei
Prince (Farewell!! We miss you so!)
Personally, I’d pick Prince Royce out of all the Princes on this list. Which Prince would you let steal your heart?
