National Princess Day
History of Princess Day
Snow White from 1937’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was the first princess to appear on our television screens. It was also the first full-length traditional animation film and the first Disney animated feature film, and it was based on a fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm. Mulan and Xena: Warrior Princess, which were both released in 1998, demonstrated to everyone that a princess is capable of more than just donning a gorgeous outfit. Children all throughout the world learned from these two legendary heroines that a princess may also be a fierce and daring warrior. Elsa from Frozen and other new-wave princesses like Moana demonstrate that being a princess without sacrificing your independence is possible. Princesses, both animated and real-world, helped us all navigate life as children. When we consider our favorite princesses, Disney immediately comes to mind. However, Disney played a very small role in the creation of National Princess Day. A musical adaption of Swan Lake, The Swan Princess, was produced in 1994 by Rich Animation and Nest Family Entertainment, a Texas-based entertainment firm. National Princess Day was established because the studio wanted people of all ages to have a day to celebrate like royalty while exhibiting the grace and generosity that we all associated with princesses at the time.
Princesses are always being redefined. Princesses were supposed to be saved by a prince and live happily ever after from the 1930s through the 1990s. Nowadays, princesses save the prince, write their own happily ever after, and immediately place him in the “friend zone.” In essence, portraying a princess on National Princess Day entails embodying what the young refer to as the G.O.A.T. (greatest of all time).
How to celebrate National Princess Day?
- Give your guests a princess party invitation. Stick to a princess-themed party for children with delicacies that are inspired by castles, thrones, and princesses (cupcakes, cookies, brownies, cake). For adults, emphasize pink beverages and sparkling furnishings. Want a simpler choice? Bring your pals together for happy hour and add a fun, festive touch by giving each of them a princess tiara.
- Let National Princess Day serve as a helpful reminder to pay attention to your personal brand. For instance, princesses are renowned for the manner in which they sit, stand, stroll, and eat (to name a few examples we can remember from The Princess Diaries). Be the leader you were meant to be, even when perhaps the princess you’re representing is Xena.
- Indulge in a treatment fit for royalty. When one thinks about a princess, a few words that come to mind are fashionable, perfect, and fabulous (real or fictional). Treat yourself to something that will make you feel like a princess on National Princess Day. Whatever you decide to do, we hope you feel and appear stylish, perfect, and beautiful by the end of the day. Book a facial or massage, get a manicure or pedicure, go shopping, or schedule an appointment with your hairstylist.

Importance of National Princess Day
It honors positive character attributes. Princesses are role models because they frequently have attitude while maintaining poise, self-assurance, and kindness. However, it’s not always simple to feel and exhibit those qualities. Fortunately, National Princess Day serves as a reminder for us to reconnect with the princess within who is eager to dominate the world. It’s a chance to experience being extraordinary. National Princess Day encourages those of us who are not royalty to deviate from the norm. Thanks to this day, you can dress up, assume leadership, and be the heroine no matter how you choose to celebrate. It’s a justification to reward yourself. National Princess Day is the ideal opportunity to break the cycle if your daily life is like Cinderella’s before she meets the prince (you know, chores, having a boss like her terrible stepmother, wearing outdated, unflattering clothes). Put on your glass slippers and give yourself something.
