ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED IN MARCH 2010:
On the new BBC reality show Undercover Princesses, three princesses visit the UK and “go undercover as ordinary people with the hope that they meet a man who will love them for who they are.”
(Note to BBC editors: Maybe you should say, “Each hopes to meet a man who will love her for who she is.” Or are you planning a sequel called “One Husband, Three Princesses”?)
Here’s an excerpt from the show. One of the princesses is nicknamed Cinderella — naturally, I approve of that.
