So many girls dream of being a princess, of being born in a royal family. Every Disney movie watched will always bring that wish in a girl’s mind again. We might be the princess in our families’ eyes but we all long to be a real life Royal Princess with a King and Queen for parents. Unfortunately though, we just have to push it into the deepest corners of our mind since it’s a really impossible dream to realise.
The existing real life Princesses are placed above mere mortals in our hearts and minds. Admittedly, we all think of Princesses only in terms of their looks or the clothes they wear. However, there is much more to them than just being “Princesses”. Here we not only look at what kind of duties they perform as Royals but we also celebrate them as the world’s richest and wealthiest Royal Princesses.
