Do you like liv­ing here? It’s a lit­tle dif­fer­ent from where you grew up.

Yes, it is rather grand, isn’t it? I still get a bit lost some­times, but ev­ery­one here has made me feel so wel­come that it truly feels like home.

How do you like to spend your time, now that you do not have to take care of your step­sis­ters or step­mother?

Well, the Prince and I love to go horse­back rid­ing. The fields around the palace are so beau­ti­ful, es­pe­cially when the wild­flow­ers are in bloom. And I al­ways like spend­ing time with my an­i­mal friends, sewing clothes for them and mak­ing their favourite things to eat.

Do Gus and Jaq, the mice, like get­ting to live in a great big palace?

They do, es­pe­cially dear lit­tle Gus. Some­how he al­ways finds his way to the kitchen when­ever the chef is pre­par­ing a meal.

Do you have any spe­cial hol­i­day tra­di­tions at the palace?

Ev­ery year, the King has the ball­room dec­o­rated with beau­ti­ful gar­lands and can­dles. And this year, we’ll be hav­ing a feast for ev­ery­one in the vil­lage.

I also thought it might be nice to dec­o­rate the gar­den and have a spe­cial cel­e­bra­tion for all the palace an­i­mals.

That way they can share in all the warmth and hap­pi­ness of the sea­son.

Do you still have the glass slip­per your fairy god­mother made you for the Royal Ball?

Of course. It’s one of my great­est trea­sures. I’ll al­ways keep it to re­mind me of that mag­i­cal night.

Princess Cin­derella, do you have any words of wis­dom for our read­ers?

Well, I think it’s very im­por­tant to be un­der­stand­ing and kind. And never stop dream­ing.

You never know when the most won­der­ful wishes will come true.

Charm­ing... Cin­derella and her Prince love it here in Perth.
