Ahhhhh… To be a Princess

Disney and Diana had it all wrong! The NEW royalty is all about elegance shmelegance, as Princess Beatrice demonstrated Sunday during the 2010 Virgin London Marathon!

Princess Beatrice of York joined in with other celebrities who were all wearing fluorescent green hats with matching tutus as well as headbands, wristbands and leg warmers of a slightly different shade of bright green over black polo shirts and leggings. To finish off the look, the celeb athletes wore sponsor logos and had their names printed boldly in black across the front of their hats:

But, as glorious as Chartreuserella looked, future Prince David Clark looked even gloriouser wearing the same thing! You can see him in the background:

If you’re wanting to look past the royal pomp and circumstance to the actual runners of the marathon, Ethiopian athlete Tsegaye Kebede won the men’s race, with a time of 2:05:18, while Russia’s Liliya Shobukhova was the leading woman, clocking 2:21:59.

I’m American, which means I’m pretty ignorant when it comes to other cultures, so I’m not sure if it’s okay to stare at the south end of a north bound princess (if it’s not would that mean it was “tabooty?”) so I’ll post this next image at my own risk.

In case it is offensive to our pals over the pond, I won’t make a “Princeass” or “derriheir” joke.
