The Rose Court: They’re just like us — except royal.

Princess June says, “I’m sort of a joker. … And it’s great that everyone else on the court is like that, so we have great interaction with each other. Michelle, especially — we like to make creepy faces at each other.”

On her family, Princess Kinsey says, “They kind of make fun of me … especially my grandmother. She says, ‘Even though you’re a princess, you’re still under my roof, and I’m the queen bee.’”

Queen Natalie is actually the youngest court member. “All the girls are like my big sisters and my moms,” she says. “They help me with everything.”

Princess Lauren shares the court’s strategy for dealing with stage fright: “We recently learned with our speech training that you can breathe through a straw to calm you down. Before the President’s Dinner, when all the court was presented for the first time, all the girls were doing a breathing exercise with the straws.”

Princess Ashley says, “I love to read. When I was little, when I’d get into trouble, I’d have to go to my room, and I wouldn’t be allowed to read — that was my punishment. I had to sit and do nothing.”

Princess Katherine says, “Princesses like to eat as much as anybody else. … We can be tired after a long day of training, but the second anybody mentions food, everyone lightens up.”
