Celebrating National Princess Week with Julie Andrews
This week, Julie Andrews of Sound of Music, Mary Poppins, and Princess Diaries fame, partners with Target and The Walt Disney Company to celebrate and declare National Princess Week. With much media attention surrounding Princess Kate Middleton and the timeless characters of Disney Princesses remaining a favorite in families, little girls now more than ever have great role models to look up to.
In meeting Julie Andrews at a recent event, she proclaims, “Why not dress up as a princess?!” Princesses often get a bad rap but they contribute so much time and charitable resources—it can’t always be easy, to her point. Her granddaughter Hope, helped reiterate this point, when asked why she likes princesses so much she answered “because they’re kind”.
To mark National Princess Week, Target will showcase the 10th Anniversary release of “The Princess Diaries” and “The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement,” Julie Andrews’ “The Very Fairy Princess: Here Comes the Flower Girl!” co-authored with her daughter, Emma Walton Hamilton, and various other themed merchandise from many popular Disney movies such as “Beauty and the Beast,” “Tangled,” and “The Princess and the Frog.” Check out the full selection at Target.com/Princess.
To celebrate National Princess Week, you can practice a royal wave, watch a princess movie, have a princess tea party, or make your own family crest.
