My favorite Princesses are the ones who got stripped from their titles

"Diana" and "Megan" thank you both for teaching us what real Princesses do.

“Diana” and “Megan” thank you both for teaching us what Princesses do.


Speak their truth
They know when its time to quit
Walk away from toxic environments that don’t serve them
Put their mental health first
They trust their intuition
Put their immediate family first
Care more about their wellbeing than a title
Don’t lose their independence when they love a man deeply
Give time to charities
They know that just because something is tradition and has been done for years if it’s wrong… it’s wrong
Help others
Become financially independent
Speak up to in the face of injustice for themselves, their families and for others

I used to shield my daughter from the falsehoods of Disney Princesses and their false fairytale lives however these two Princesses I can really get behind. What amazing role models.
