Being a Princess is not about having a Queen or King for a parent (although that can be a fun role for the parents to play!) Rather it is all about attitude, manners, poise, and grace. These are things anyone can have, with a little practice. So our Princess party games will center around using these skills – make practice acting like a Princess a part of your Royal Whispers game.
So what about the game? Well I’m glad you asked. Royal Whispers is game of Princess tea party whispers. You may remember a similar game called Chinese whispers.
Sit your Princesses down at the Royal table, encouraging them to practice their tea party skills. Firstly their Princess voices, which should be measured, slow and articulate. Naturally one will talk in the third person! Another fun tip is to hold their cups while extending the pinkie (or little finger) in a very obvious manner. Once they’ve had a short time to practice these – the Princesses are ready to start the game.
To start a game of Royal whispers you need a message - suitably royal, of course. Use a message like : “Princess [party girl's name] requests the pleasure of your company on tuesday next at the Royal Pony Club.” Of course you may write whatever you want in the message, but do keep it as Royal as possible, this is a Princess party game after all. This message is then passed down the line, from one Princess to the next via a whisper, so no-one else can hear it.
At the end of the line the final Princess speaks the message out loud as it has arrived, in the style of a Royal proclamation. The rest of the Princesses are to reply “Yes, your Highness” – no matter how strange the message may sound! As soon as this happens, the Princesses will want to discover who heard what and just how the message was changed as it passed down the line, which is where the real fun lies.
So there you have it – Royal whispers is one of those Princess party games that you can pull out with a moment’s notice. Best of all it needs no setup or equipment at all!
Enjoy the party!
