Merida’s Royal Coronation: Disney Princesses Show Their Support

With the entire Disney Princess Royal Court and other dignitaries in attendance, Princess Merida’s Coronation took place on Saturday, May 11, 2013, at the Magic Kingdom in the Walt Disney World Resort.

Merida’s entrance was true to her character. She rode in on her black steed, Angus, and, approaching both determined and confident, made haste to the ceremonial stage.

Olympian Gabrielle Douglas and her mom welcomed all attending and each of the Disney Royal Princesses was introduced.

Merida’s mother, Queen Elinor, did the honors saying to her daughter, “I see the best of our past and the best of our future. I am proud of all that you are and all I know you will become, I am proud of you, my daughter.” And with that, Queen Elinor placed the crown on Merida’s head. Merida responded,”I am strong, I am brave, I am Merida, I am a princess.” She then took her rightful place among the other members of the Disney Princess Royal Court.

You are cordially invited to view the photographs from the celebration (and all the princesses in attendance!) in the gallery below.
