Brave's Merida Officially Becomes Disney's 11th Princess with Royal Celebration

By Official Disney Store Blogger, May 13, 2013 11:14 AM

Celebrating her inner strength, bravery, determination, passion and confidence, Merida from Disney Pixar's Brave was officially crowned Disney's 11th Princess last Saturday, May 11 at Walt Disney World.

The royal celebration was hosted by Gymnastics Gold Medalist, Gabby Douglas, who was joined on stage by her mother, Natalie Hawkins. 


Sophia Grace and Rosie of the "The Ellen Show" were also in attendance and warmed up the crowd with an original rap. 


Merida’s mother Queen Elinor made a theme park appearance and crowned her daughter a princess, just in time for Mother’s Day.


As the first Pixar Princess, Merida was finally joined for the first time by all ten of her fellow royals, Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora, Ariel, Jasmine, Belle, Mulan, Pocahontas, Tiana, and Rapunzel.

What an exciting addition to the line of Disney princesses!

Welcome Princess Merida!
Thank you for being a great role model. My three year old loves you and has grown up so much by trying to be independent and brave like you! Disney has made a great movie and now a great decision in welcoming to be the 11th Disney Princess!

Welcome Merida! I'm so glad you have joined the Disney Princess Royal Court!
