Princess Rosie’s royal day out

Eleven-year-old Rosie was born with Tetraplegic Cerebral Palsy and needs 24-hour care.  Starlight granted Rosie’s wish to be a princess for the day and ride in a horse drawn carriage.

After a magical Cinderella makeover in the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Harrods, Rosie and her proud mum, Jo, travelled in style through London in a Cinderella style glass carriage drawn by two white horses.  Dressed in her Cinderella dress and tiara, Rosie couldn’t stop smiling as passers-by stopped and waved at her.  Jo said, “It was really emotional and a bit surreal. The crowds cheered loudly and were taking photos, like she was famous. Rosie was really smiling, and was very happy. It was such a lovely day. I couldn’t sleep last night thinking about it; it was like a wedding day, when you don’t want it to end.”
