Miss A Columnist

Emily Meier is a recent transplant to Charleston. It became clear to her a few years ago that Charleston, with it’s amazing people, culture, and proximity to the water, had her by the heart. She realized this on the way back to Michigan after a visit with friends and she started to cry. She just didn’t want to leave Charleston. The lady at the airport gift shop thought she was crying about leaving a guy. When Emily realized she was crying about leaving a place, she knew she’d be back. A graduate of Denison University she also holds an MFA from Bennington. Currently, she teaches college English (writing and literature) and works as a freelance editor helping potential MBA and law school candidates prepare their essays. With friends and family all over the states, Emily enjoys traveling and is always up for a trip in support of a cause.

Princess Prep: Summer Camp for Girls Who Want to be a Princess like Kate Middleton

Did you ever feel that perhaps you were adopted and your real parents were royalty? Or maybe you believed that you were just one chance encounter away from marrying a royal? Did you cut your hair like Princess Di? (I did. Not a good look on a gangly girl of ten.)

Jerramy Fine, author of Someday My Prince Will Come: True Adventures of A Wannabe Princess believed that she was destined for royalty (specifically, she believed she and Prince Peter Phillips would one day marry). There was just one problem: She had to meet him and he lived in England while she lived with her hippie parents in the boonies of Colorado. Want to know what happens? Pick up a copy of this book. It’s a fun read.

But this is not a book review. It is, instead, about what Fine has created since the publication of her book. Princess Prep is a summer camp for girls, ages 8-11, that takes place in the heart of all things royal: London, England. But this isn’t like any old sleep-away camp. For seven days your little princess in training will live in a luxury flat in the heart of posh Kensington and Chelsea with seven other girls.

During their week they will be exposed to all things royal. Daily activities include:
• Etiquette lessons
• Tea at Kensington Palace
• Horse riding in Hyde Park
• A day at Hampton Court Palace
• Visits to the Crown Jewels and Buckingham Palace
• Featured talks on specific princesses
• And a Royal Wedding walking tour

All the meals are freshly prepared and served by a butler named Jeeves (not kidding). And the girls are supervised 24 hours a day by a Mary Poppins-like nanny.

Can you feel the Blue Blood in the air? The count down to Prince William and Kate Middleton’s big day (April 29th) has started, in case you have missed the weekly magazine coverage or endless television documentaries, and yes, even the lifetime movie.

The spotlight on all things royal has made Princess Prep an exciting option for any little girl who believes she may have a royal future awaiting her. Despite three different sessions being offered this summer, slots are quickly being filled. If ever there was a time to attend a princess camp in England, this is the summer.
