meghanDear Princess Meghan by Sophie Siers & Katie Wilson. Pub. Millwood press, 2019.

You could see this picture book as satire or you could see it as the hopes and dreams of a little girl who is in no hurry to meet her prince but has ideas about what it will take based on Princess Meghan’s wedding.

Emma is a young girl who is impressed that a girl just like herself “becomes a famous actress, falls in love with a Prince and becomes a true, real life princess”.

She is determined to follow Meghan’s path a gets the role of Anne Boleyn in the school play. She starts acting the way she thinks a princess should act in front of her family and class mates. It doesn’t go down well.

She writes to Princess Meghan in a series of letters asking her concerns “how did you learn to give orders?” Do you really have to let your maid brush your teeth?”.

Emma has a lot to learn but finally realises “luckily I’m not in any hurry to find my Prince!”

Love the letter writing and the illustrations are suitably royal and multi cultural.
