Rapunzel will be officially welcomed as the 10th Disney Princess at an invitation-only star studded celebration at Kensington Palace, London on 2 October 2011. On this pink letter day, Rapunzel will join the Disney Princess royal court, which includes Ariel, Aurora, Belle, Cinderella, Jasmine, Mulan, Pocahontas, Snow White and Tiana, along with VIPs, celebrities and little princesses from across the globe. Kensington Palace is the perfect location for this magical welcoming ceremony of Rapunzel as it has been home to many real life Princesses over the centuries.

Before the start of the event there will be a Disney Princess horse drawn carriage procession through Kensington Gardens which everyone can attend for free and without a ticket. This is the very first time a Disney procession will take place in central London so make sure the date is in your diary. The procession will start at 1pm at Queen’s Gate and finish at 1:30pm at Kensington Palace. The best place to stand to watch the Disney Princesses is along Mount Walk, near Kensington Palace. Everyone is welcome!
