Yesterday was the big day for Rapunzel as she was officially welcomed as the 10th Disney Princess in a vibrant, fun and energetic celebration beginning with a procession through Kensington Gardens. Over 10,000 Disney fans lined the streets and waved flags as the Disney Princesses made their way through in horse-drawn carriages.
Nicole Richie, her husband Joel Madden and their two children Harlow and Sparrow attended the event as did other celebrities such as Peter Andre, Helen McCroy, Damian Lewis, Ticiane Pinheiro Justus and Laura Chiatti.
Rapunzel has become one of the most popular Disney Princess and it isn’t just due to her 70 feet of glowing, magical hair. Rapunzel has encouraged (and continues to encourage) girls to follow their dreams and to find their inner strength. Even though she lived her entire life locked up in a castle, this is one princess that is certainly no damsel in distress!
