Be Royal for a Day on January 9th
I know I'm not the only one interested in royalty. There are plenty of fictional books and movies on becoming a princess. The most famous is The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot. You probably have seen the popular movies with Anne Hathaway and Julie Andrews. (Sidenote: Meg Cabot just started a new spinoff series of The Princess Diaries called From the Notebooks of a Middle School Princess featuring Mia's half sister.) Oh, and let's not forget about The Tales of a Frog Princess series by E.D. Baker where our heroine princess kissed a frog and suddenly become one herself. Even Shrek married into royalty when he married Princess Fiona.
If you want to learn about real-life monarchs (and not the butterfly kind), check out our biography section. We range from current monarchs all the way back to the infamous Cleopatra.
What I'm trying to say is that people are always curious about royalty. Did you know that Roselle has it's own royalty? Yep, it sure does. Every March, Roselle high school women can have the opportunity to compete in a pageant where they can win a college scholarship and be the Queen of Roselle for one year. During this time, the Queen gets to ride in the annual Rose Parade float as well as make appears around the town to promote events. Why, she was just here with Santa for Celebrate the Season.
