Once upon a time, a girl sat sad in her bedroom. “What is the matter?” her worried mother asked after seeing her daughter’s teary eyes. “Why I can’t find my charming prince, Mama?” asked the early 21 year old beautiful girl. The mother sat at the edge of the bed beside her daughter and held her hands but kept quiet without uttering any word. After a moment of silence the girl looked at her mother and asked “Why are you quite Mama, is there something you are not telling me? Please Mama tell me, is there something wrong with me?” Her mother was silent because she was hiding a secret. A secret she didn’t want to tell her daughter about until she celebrates her 25th birthday. But when she found how sad her daughter was she decided to reveal the secret to her.
“I will tell you how to find your charming prince, my dear love” said the mother. “You need to kiss a frog!” she added hesitantly after a moment of silence. The daughter got annoyed and reproached her mother “why do you make fun of me, Mama? Don’t you see I am not in the mood?” The mother knew that her daughter will not believe her so she told her about the Frog Prince story. The mother overheard this story when she was working as a housekeeper for the Duchess of Dreamshire. One day while performing the daily chores, she eavesdropped on a conversation between the Duchess of Dreamshire and her daughter. The secret conversation she overheard was of course about the frog prince.
The story of kissing a frog to find the charming prince was kept secret for a long time among the nobilities of England such as the Duchesses, Countesses and Baronesses. No middle class girl would ever dream of marrying a prince. Until of course the housekeeper revealed the secret to her daughter who eventually told her girl friends. Since then some of the middle class girls who believed in the Frog Prince story and in miracles actually got married to princes. Here are few of those girls:
Engaged to: Prince William of Wales
Worked as: Assistant accessories buyer with clothing chain Jigsaw
With the above in mind, there is another significant secret that is still unknown among the middle class boys; how a boy can find his royal princess? Why we don’t hear in the news of a middle class man marrying a princess? Why such news is not worthy of our invaluable time as of when and where is Kate Middleton’s wedding? Who is invited and what would be in the menu? The question is why when a non-royal woman marries a prince it is big news but when a non-royal man marries a princess it is not news?
