The Princess and the Pea

Fairytales. Can they exist in real life?

Once upon a time . . .

The story tells of a prince who wants to marry a princess, but is having difficulty finding a suitable wife.

Something is always wrong with those he meets, and he cannot be certain they are real princesses because they have bad table manners or they are too fat or not beautiful.

One stormy night a young woman drenched with rain seeks shelter in the prince’s castle. She claims to be a princess, so the prince’s administrator decides to test their guest by placing a pea in the bed she is offered for the night, covered by 20 mattresses and 20 feather-beds.

In the morning, the guest tells the hosts that she endured a sleepless night, kept awake by something hard in the bed. The prince rejoices.


Only a real princess would have the sensitivity to feel a pea through such a quantity of bedding. In fact, the princess is close to the Father’s heart that He tells her His secrets.

Now the princess tells the prince there are dark peas that need to be taken out of his life before they can be married. The prince agreed and was amazed how the princess knew it to be.

She was indeed a real princess and a real daughter of the Sovereign King.
