The Duchess of Cambridge

In my desperation to resolve the daily issues of getting dressed for Gan in the morning, and of choosing pajamas in the evening, I had written a letter to Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge;  I had requested that she tell Raphaela that Princesses are not forbidden to wear pants, and that they retain both their royalty and their ability to dance no matter what they are wearing.

Today, I received a response:

"...in connection with your daughter Raphaela, who has decided to live her life as a Princess. I can appreciate that her insistence on wearing only skirts and dresses can cause difficulties at times.

Please let her know that real life Princesses have to dress sensibly for the weather, to make sure they don't catch a cold or get ill. It would be very difficult to do all the things that Princesses have to do every day if they got ill."

As well, Her Royal Highness sent Raphaela a children's book written by Prince Charles and translated into Hebrew.

This letter will be laminated and placed on the wall of her room, right near her dresser, a reference and a preventative measure for the trauma that is choosing clothing each day, as befits a Princess of course.

Wow amazing! I'm very impressed that Prince Charles' book is translated into Hebrew. What a lovely reply.
