Rapunzel's Royal Celebration: The Inside Scoop

Rapunzel officially became the 10th Disney Princess this past weekend, with a royal celebration at London’s Kensington Palace. My daughter and I were lucky enough to attend Rapunzel’s inauguration, and it would be accurate to say that the ceremony was the highlight of Scarlet’s three and a half years on this earth. All 10 princesses were in attendance, and the Disney magic was in full effect. Check out the crowd and some of my behind the scenes pictures after the jump…
