Camilla Parker Bowles’s Christmas Party Was so ‘Frozen 2’

Camilla Parker Bowles’s title may be the Duchess of Cornwall, but today she lived her very best Princess Elsa life.

The 72-year-old duchess hosted her annual children’s Christmas party at the humble London abode she shares with Prince Charles, Clarence House, today. But this was no average holiday party. There were reindeer and gifts and important causes, to boot.

The Duchess of Cornwall, who is patron of the Helen & Douglas House and Roald Dahl’s Marvelous Children’s Charity, invited terminally ill children to enjoy a day of fun festivities such as Christmas tree decorating and—you guessed it—hobnobbing with reindeer. Casual, right?

Looking at photos shared by Rebecca English of The Daily Mail, we couldn’t help but notice that the event shared some similarities to Frozen 2. First off, there was the reindeer, who struck a strong resemblance to Sven (voiced by Frank Welker in the film). Then there was IRL Sven’s handler, who was dressed an awful lot like Kristoff (voiced by Jonathan Groff in the film). Sure, there was no snow on the ground, but Parker Bowles was wearing a cape, just like Anna (Kristen Bell) and Elsa (Idina Menzel) do in the hit Disney franchise. It’s likely that the symbolism was unintentional, but kids do love Frozen, so who knows?

Frozen 2 Easter eggs aside, the Duchess of Cornwall also served the children a beautiful holiday lunch inside her home while parents looked on. There were also plenty of Christmas cookies to nibble on and ornaments to hang on the massive tree.

If only there had been snow, Camilla and friends could have pulled an Anna and Elsa and built a snowman.
