It was a tight shutdown for five-year-old Mila Sneddon. With strict stay-at-home orders placed on Britain last spring, Mila was undergoing chemotherapy in her battle with leukemia.
Her father still has to go to work, so the family made the difficult decision to distance Mila from her father to reduce the risk of her infection.. For seven weeks, Mila only managed to see her father from the window of their home in Falkirk, Scotland.
Mila’s mother snapped a photo of her little girl kissing the window during her first daily remote visit with her father and presented it to a community art project led by Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, for the National Portrait Gallery.
The picture is Chosen for “Stand Still” project. When the Duchess saw this, she contacted the Mila family. In the end, the Duchess spoke on the phone with the young man, and during that conversation Mila indicated that she would like to meet a real princess dressed in her favorite color, pink. Duchess Kate said she could make it happen.
On Wednesday, she kept her word.
During an official tour of Scotland this week, Prince William and Kate, Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, invited the Millas to their official royal residence in Edinburgh.
In a decorated reception room inside the Palace of Holyrood House, Mila – who also wore pink head-to-toe – was drenched on a large foam couch with Kate, also in pink, for a chat.
As she met the little girl, Kate said, “Hey Mila, I’m looking at you. I want to give you a hug. It’s great to meet you in person.” She asked Mila to “do a little turn,” so she could appreciate the effort put into her all-pink collection.
Aside from the private meeting inside the palace, the royal couple also hosted Mila and her family for a Scottish military uniform show. They all sat on a patio to witness the “Beating Retreat,” a historic military ceremony in which Macedon Pipes and the drums of the Common Cadet Force in Scotland played while local school dancers performed a traditional dance.
It was a day that little Mila might remember forever, and she might have her own handmade souvenir to remind her of the time she met a real pink princess.
When a reporter asked the little girl what she and the Duchess of Cambridge had discussed during their private meeting, Mila said, “Well, I was busy drawing a picture – a robot.”
