Last week at the Kensington Palace in London, Disney officially welcomed Rapunzel as the 10th Disney Princess in a high-profile, star-studded celebration. Rapunzel was welcomed into the Disney Princess royal court by Ariel, Aurora, Belle, Cinderella, Jasmine, Mulan, Pocahontas, Snow White, and Tiana.
An estimated 10,000 Disney fans lined the parade route waving flags as Rapunzel and the other Disney Princesses arrived in horse-drawn carriages and made their way through Kensington Gardens. Disney chose Kensington Palace as the perfect location for this magical ceremony because it has been home to many real-life princesses for centuries.
More than 100 little girls dressed as princesses from more than 25 countries joined the festivities and witnessed the crowning of Rapunzel by Fairy Godmother and Flynn Rider from Tangled. The celebrations continued with a fun-filled afternoon, including lantern making and storytelling.
Tangled is now one of Disney’s top 10 grossing movies of all time ahead of Toy Story, Beauty and the Beast, Cars, and Toy Story 2.
