Princess Livia

Her Royal Highness, the Princess of Ottawa
My nephew recently posted some photos of his daughter, Livia, that reminded me so much of the Audrey Hepburn film classic Roman Holiday, that I had to share with you!

Do you remember the story?

The young princess is on a tour of Europe and is exhausted from a life of all work and no play.  While in Rome, she manages to escape the confines of the castle and is able to spend a couple of days being an ordinary girl.

Along the way she is helped by a journalist, played in the film by Gregory Peck.  He takes her off on a wild motorcycle ride!

Of course, the Princess finally has to return to her real life.  She holds a press conference to say how much she has enjoyed visiting Rome.

Okay, so it wasn't actually a press conference.
Livia is singing her rendition of "Old MacDonald" in this photo!
Our little two year-old pumpkin is quite the actress!  Don't you think?

Heavy hangs the head that wears the crown!
