All girls love princesses, just ask Pippa

Pippa Middleton Meets Outspoken Little Girl Who ‘Hates Princesses’

Huffington Post, 10/26/2012

An outspoken little girl has put Pippa Middleton in her place, reminding the British socialite that not every 10-year-old girl likes pink and princesses.

According to Gawker, Middleton was hanging out with a bunch of children in London recently while promoting her new party planning book.

Captured on camera by the Telegraph, the younger sister of the Duchess of Cambridge is heard telling a 6-year-old “tomboy” that she will “love pink and love princesses” by the time she turns 10.

But a feisty little girl, adorned with a fiery set of devil horns, soon pipes up with a damning objection to that stereotype.

“I hate princesses,” the child announces matter-of-factly, adding that she prefers vampires.

We’re thinking this spunky little girl would do well joining forces with 8-year-old Olivia Steger and little Riley Maida, both of whom have vocally rallied against gender stereotypes in the past.

Why do all the girls have to buy princesses? Some girls like superheroes, some girls like princesses. Some boys like superheroes, some boys like princesses. So why does all the girls have to buy pink stuff and all the boys have to buy different color stuff?” Riley, then 4, asked her dad in a toy store last year.
