How to be a Princess: real-life Fairy Tales for Modern Heroines by Katy Birchall – Book Review by Liza from books.books.books
As Meghan Markle (now the Duchess of Sussex) once said: ‘With fame comes opportunity, but it also includes responsibility – to advocate and share, to focus less on the glass slipper and more on pushing through glass ceilings. And, if I’m lucky enough, to inspire.’
This book was inspired by the Royal Wedding on 19 May between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. It’s a beautiful collection of light-hearted stories which celebrates what it takes to be a modern princess – whether they are real or fictional.
