The prestigious title of ‘Princess Royal’ dates back to 1642 when Queen Henrietta Maria, spouse of Charles I, wanted an Anglicised version of the French title ‘Madame Royale’.
The current Princess Royal is Anne, only daughter of the current Queen. The second child of The Duke of Edinburgh and The Queen was born at Clarence.
Because we have been learning all about English royalty this week, we spent one day discussing princesses and their origins.
To help us interact with this concept in a physical way, we created our very own princess sand!
Using salt, glitter and jewels, students manipulated the material along with their very own princes and princesses!
