One thing you didn’t know about the Princess is that she’s severely dyslexic. Actually, I didn’t even know this until well into my 20s, when my mother sent me a folder stuffed with my kindergarten assignments. More than half of what I spelled was backward, including my name, and not only was it backward, but some of the letters were written backward. This suddenly made a lot of sense to me.
