It’s prom season, which means the stories of heartwarming dates, prom-posals and shared celebrities dresses are coming out in full force. But sometimes it’s the simplest prom moments that are the most magical.
That’s what North Carolina native Kwani Taylor discovered recently, when she and her date were posing for prom pictures in the park (as you do when you’re all decked out for prom). Apparently the high school student was so dolled up that a little girl walking by with her dad stopped in her tracks to stare at Taylor, believing her to be a real-life princess.
No, Taylor wasn’t exactly wearing a tiara, but with her full-length sparkly dress, beautiful curls pinned to the side, makeup and corsage, she was definitely regal. And when she got down on her knees to hug the shy little girl, she definitely showed the actions of a queen.
Now don’t stories like this make you believe in the magic of prom despite all of the stress and hoopla surrounding it?
The cool part is that the impromptu meet-and-greet was all caught on video, and it even made the local news. Now the story is going viral; a Facebook post sharing the clip has already been shared more than 71,000 times.
Okay, so maybe prom is “A Night to Remember” after all. Especially when it involves a cute little girl and her wonderment at fairytales, sparkly dresses and real-life “princesses.”
