    More than a thousand years before the first European explorer reached Korea’s shores, the Persian Empire was writing love stories about Korean princesses. Recently, historians took a second look an old Persian epic written around 500 AD and realized that, at the center of the tale, was the unusual story of a Persian prince marrying a Korean princess. It’s an incredible discovery. Up until recently, we weren’t sure that the Persians of that time even knew Korea existed. This new revelation shows Persia didn’t just make contact with Korea – these countries were intimately connected. The story is called the...

    Someone call Child Protective Services. We have yet another example of moonbat child abuse: Hayley McLean took to her parenting blog, Sparkles and Stretchmarks, to voice her outrage that Disneyland Paris initially told her that “it is not possible to book Princess for a Day for a boy,” when she asked about booking the activity for her 3-year-old boy, Noah. Young Noah enjoys dressing up as Disney princesses, especially Elsa from the critically acclaimed film Frozen. His mother wanted to give him an early Christmas present by taking him to the nearby Disneyland Hotel to enjoy the Princess for a...

On Tuesday, after having been denied permission, she wrote an open letter to the firm, demanding to know what “terrible awful fate may befall” her son if he was allowed to wear a dress....

    Sometimes a woman's deepest thoughts are best left unsaid, but the Princess Royal has never regretted once describing herself as 'not everyone's idea of a fairytale princess'. It was a deliberate message and the moment she laid the ground rules for her life as a professional royal. But everyone knew what she was getting at all those years ago. In a celebrity-besotted world inhabited by pretty people endlessly proclaiming the message that physical beauty brings instant happiness, Anne was having to deal with being a real princess who is not blessed with chocolate-box prettiness.

A friend of the Prince’s reportedly said: “This the first time that Meghan and Harry have socialised so openly as a couple and is a significant step up in their relationship. “Make no mistake, he is heads over heels about her.

    The American media’s heir apparent to the presidency, Princess Hillary Clinton, has had a hissy fit because that cad Donald Trump slipped a pea under her mattress. She’s all a flutter because he used a sexually oriented word that 99% of Americans have never heard of. Princess Hillary seems to believe that women should be protected from such language like they were in the 1950′s. Or,maybe she’s been so protected she doesn’t know some women use more well known words with a similar meaning. I’ve even heard teenage girls use such terms in church.

Ms. Nagy further "limited her screen time and tried to introduce a variety of stimuli...

    Yesterday, I had the chance to say farewell in my heart to "little kid sister" Princess Azadeh at a memorial service held for her in Los Angeles and felt my heart well up when I saw her face live on in the features of her tall, elegant son Kamran. She was Prince Shahriar's kid sister but as he and I were best friends at the time back in Iran, she was also mine by association and I always thought of her as such.
