The Princess Bride

...Princess Diana: The Life She Led Princess Diana’s life is one that impacted the world in a positive way and that will never be forgotten. Diana Spencer became a British princess and an international icon when she married Prince Charles the son of Queen Elizabeth. Even though her life may have seemed like a fairy tale, Diana had some rough patches in her life that molded her into the beautiful person she turned out to be. Diana was greatly loved by the people and referred to as “the People’s Princess” because of her genuine personality and endless compassion for the less fortunate. Her humanitarian acts were also greatly noticed by the world. Diana, Princess of Wales, led an inspirational life as a paparazzi chased international icon and humanitarian, and greatly influenced the world in all that she did. Born Diana Frances Spencer, she already had her fair share of ties to royalty. On July 1, 1961, Diana became the third daughter of John Spencer and Frances Ruth Burke Roche Spencer. Her father was a descendant of the Stuart kings of England and her mother came from a wealthy family as well. Diana’s grandparents also had the titles of Lady and Lord which Diana would one day receive and even surmount. Diana was born into a privileged British family that had grown exceedingly wealthy from sheep farming. Since they were so well off, Diana’s family often aided the royal family but were not considered a royal family themselves. Diana had two older sisters Sarah and Jane...

Princess Diana

...Thesis Statement The controversial life led by Princess Diana as well as her tragic death is a direct consequence of the pressures laid by fame and the pressures of royalty. A lot was expected of her as the Princess of Wales. Her elevation to royalty placed undue demands on a lady who could not bear being on the limelight. Her newly found matrimony did not help as her husband, Prince Charles became a philanderer. The Prince openly carried on his affair with an old flame, Camilla Parker. Any sensible woman should have deserted her husband but Diana was no ordinary woman. She was a mother to princes, one of whom was an heir to the British monarchy. Moreover, Diana had a public responsibility to the people of England to behave as the model princess and initially divorce was out of the question. Consequently she decided to put on a façade of happiness in order to fulfill her role as the peoples’ princess and proud wife. Beneath her superficial glamorous veneer, was a hurting woman who lacked an outlet to vent her gradually growing emotional turmoil. Unfortunately Diana had to live by the chauvinistic protocol of royalty. Just like the predecessors, Charles carried on with an affair in the full glare of the public and his wife was expected to tolerate his behavior. A good example is the infamous Tudor King, Henry VIII. Henry had numerous affairs but his wives did not object as it was indeed a man’s world. Apparently such norms are in play as exhibited by Prince Charles. ......

Princess Diaries - Character

...Princess Amelia "Mia" Mignonetta Grimaldi Thermopolis Renaldo Her grey eyes are her "only attractive feature", according to her outspoken best friend Lilly Moscovitz. Amelia struggles with her new role in the world as Princess of Genovia (a country loosely based on Andorra). For all of her childhood and a some of her adolescence, she prefers to wear combat boots and overalls (though she wears a uniform to school) instead of the designer wardrobe that is expected for her. She is fluent in English and is learning Spanish and French, though she sometimes humorously mistakes homonymous words for one another. Mia often does inappropriate or mortifying things, particularly when she is in public. She bites her nails, obsesses over her cat "Fat Louie" (whom she admits to loving the most in the world; over her mother, friends and boyfriend), is concerned about her life to an exaggerated degree, and writes in her diary whenever she can. After being formally recognized as a princess, she is assigned her own bodyguard, Lars van der Hooten. Her failure at self-actualization saddens and frustrates her. She was a dedicated vegetarian until book #9 of the series. She lives on takeout from Number One Noodle Son and other local Noho restaurants. [edit] Lilly Moscovitz Lilly is a slightly overweight feminist with an IQ of 210 (at last count). She has a "squished" visage (similar to that of a pug) and brown curls, although later in the series she dyes her hair blonde. She is......

Princess Frog

...impressionable minds of children. For example in Dumbo and The Princess Frog beautifully drawn characters and nature are opposed to some seriously disturbing images of monsters and demons, like Dumbo’s hallucinations or shadow monsters in The Princess Frog. In Dumbo, the mother elephant is beaten and incarcerated and little Dumbo cannot see her anymore, and in The Princess Frog, the evil Shadow Man, murders a heroic firefly by crushing him up with his foot. Describing the influence of Disney’s films on individual identities, Henry A. Giroux and Donald A. Gross and Todd G.Shields state, that “Disney’s animated films provoke and inform children’s imagination, desires, roles, and dreams while simultaneously sedimenting affect and meaning.”(91) Any good fantasy or a fairly tale contains the forces of good and evil, and inevitably reflect the realities of the world we live in. These and similar films and cartoons leave a heavy sediment in the heart of an adult, who understands the reality of this film, how much more in a child, who emotionally connects with heroes and starts empathising with their feelings. On numerous occasions I have witnessed, that when boys would play together they would shout a line from a cartoon like: “I am a mighty monster!”, and try to attack or kick, or pretend shooting their friends. Girls, on the other hand, will dress up, all as one, like princesses on the Book Character Day, and bring in a princess story. These role models obviously do not inhabit......

I am going to write an account of those times as told to me by my mother, Mazie Brewer Wilmer. The period I will cover in her life happens between 1963-1965.

Disney Princess

...Disney films is the value of physical appearance over wit or intellect. Secondly, the defenselessness and vulnerability worn by the princesses devoid of their significant other. And, thirdly, the domestic backdrop usually painted for each princess, in addition to the traits of other women surrounding the show. Disney – well-known for its legendary characters, the same characters that are simultaneously seen as models and idols for the children. The exemplary pink princesses of Disney – the quixotic and romantic princesses stooping over the windowsill, awaiting the arrival of the valiant and heroic, not to mention, ‘charming’ prince to rescue them for the dullness engulfing their lives. These princesses are rather defined by their need to get married and fall in love – their lives are pointless without tiptoeing their instincts into the waters of love at first sight and nuptials. Unlike the princes of the Disney world – the daring and handsome saviors of those helpless princesses, the Disney princesses are well-known for their habit to romanticize every situation, viewing their lives through a rose-tinted glass (literally, in Snow White). In many cases, such as Sleeping Beauty and Snow White, the prince is not only their savior of their pre-princess and dull contours of reality, but also a form of revival from death. Considering all of this, children watching such typical roles are subconsciously made to formulate identical ideas to where they stand as children in the......

Inexplicably, General Kane, the dictator of a neighboring country (Costa Estrella), is able to massively infiltrate her palace with his agents during her coronation rehearsal, and attempts to assassinate her while effecting a coup d'etat against her regime. Luckily, Joe Mason, an agent of the Princess Protection Program, a secret organization funded by royal families that looks after endangered princesses, is able to whisk her away to safety via helicopter because Gen. Kane’s agents failed to secure her rooftop helipad. They succeeded in capturing her mother, the Queen Sophia, but unfortunately for the general, his coup severely alienated him from the international authorities. To keep Princess Rosalinda hidden, the Princess Protection Program places her in Mr. Mason’s home in rural Louisiana because she refuses to trust anyone else.

She captured the world with her beauty, grace, and compassion. Millions of people could identify with her and, when she died, they felt as though they had lost a best friend. More than a year after the sudden end of her life, Princess Diana's charity work still motivates many others to donate their own time in hopes to help the lives of others.

Princess Diana Case Study

...Many people remember Princess Diana for her very fragile and loving nature, however during an interview with BBC, she often remarks “I am a very strong person,” an ironic statement for someone whose life was full of challenges and disappointments (Elliot& Pederson, 1995, p.62). Beginning with her birth on July 1, 1961 to aristocratic parents Viscount and Viscountess Johnnie and Frances Althorp, Princess Diana (then Diana Frances Spencer) believed she was a disappointment to her parents because she was not born a baby boy, the desired heir to the Spencer estate. Feelings of disappointment continued for Diana during her parent’s divorce at the age of six and her father’s second marriage to Raine (a woman she despised) when she was 16. Shortly after her father’s marriage to Raine, Diana failed her “O-levels” (or college placement tests), and was sent to a Swiss finishing school to develop her passion for skiing rather than focus on academics. It was based on this new sense of freedom that caused Diana to exhibit problematic behaviors, such as relentless stubbornness and lying, as well as early symptoms of an eating disorder (Elliot & Pederson, 1995). Thus, it is the purpose of this paper to examine how the events of Diana’s life in conjunction with psychological components contributed to her development of bulimia nervosa. Biological Component Eating disorders like bulimia are a significant public health problem for individuals across the lifespan (American Psychological......

A Little Princess

...A Little Princess (1995) I chose the movie ‘A Little Princess’ because it showed the perseverance of a little girl during her darkest times. She was faced with a disastrous situation, yet it did not change who she was, a kind and gentle person. Synopsis The movie takes place during World War 1. The main protagonist, Sara Crewe, is a fun-loving and kind hearted little girl who loved to hear stories. She grew up in India but was later enrolled in a seminary for girls in New York when her father, Captain Crew, decided to fight for British in WW1. He was quite wealthy and made sure that Sara would not have any sort of discomfort. Many other students liked Sara and her exciting stories, while others grew jealous over her popularity. The seminary’s headmistress, Miss Minchin, is very intolerant and narrow-minded. One day Sara gets the news that her father died in the battle and all his wealth and estate is seized by the government. Miss Minchin forces Sara to be a servant along with the other servant girl, Becky. Sara still continues being who she was. When taunted by her headmistress, she firmly said she believed that ‘every girl is a princess’. In the end, we find out that Sara’s father didn’t die but had severe amnesia and temporary blindness. When he regained his memory, he came for Sara. Miss Minchin got kicked out off the seminary and became a chimney sweep, working under a boy whom she mistreated in the past.

Diary

...January, 5th Dear Diary, I am extremely disappointed. I’ve just come back from the hospital where I do volunteer work. It was my first day. There I have to play with children who suffer from cancer, AIDS or other diseases that are not infectious. There are both boys and girls and they are so cute, so playful, and so happy you wouldn’t say they are ill. When I entered the room, I first saw a boy, a man, actually, which was solitary. The others were really cheerful. I made myself comfortable and I went to talk to him. He was a little bit surprised by my movement, but he gave me a shy smile. Then I found out that his name is Max and that he is 21 years old. Nothing unusual. I couldn’t understand why he is so reserved. So I summoned up my courage and I asked him. He sighed and his words were: „I have cancer and I am homosexual. Now you know. You are free to turn your back on me, as everyone else did”. Even though I knew where I was, I couldn’t say a word for a few seconds. And not because I didn’t know what to do and how to react, but I had this image stuck in my head, with all his relatives and friends walking away without a word. “People hit me, they cursed me, swore me, and I couldn’t do anything. They were too much. In a group of 30 people, 29 were against me”. A tear ran down his cheek. I couldn’t hear the voices and the noise around me. It was just the two of us. I took his hand and he calmed down. Not a word was said anymore. I just can’t believe. Is this the......
