Princess FAQ

Q. Besides Kate Middleton, has any other American become a princess?
A. Well, besides every daughter who wrapped herself around a parent’s pinky, the accurate answer is, yes. Probably the most recognizable name on the list is Grace Kelly. The American Oscar-winning actress married Prince Rainier III of Monaco.

Another notable American princess is Lee Bouvier – yes, that Bouvier. She was the younger sister of Jackie Bouvier Kennedy and in 1959, she married Prince Stanislaw Albrecht Radziwill. While it was her second marriage, she and the prince had two children during their 15-year marriage.

Before Grace Kelly stole the scene, Rita Hayworth made a worthy effort at the role of princess. In 1949, she wed Prince Aly Khan, son of the Aga Khan and direct descendent of the Prophet Muhammad. Though Hayworth was the first American actress to become a princess, the marriage did not last very long.

Q. What are some of the best qualities of a princess?
A. Princesses (and princes for that matter) come in all varieties. Some are bold and fashionable while others like to take action. One might speak eloquently and in many languages, while another prefers to listen to what others have to say. No matter what their style, they are kind and helpful.
