No, unless they’ve bowed to realism in the fairy tale biz, and have changed “lived happily ever after” to “split with intense acrimony after mutual infidelity and humiliating scandal.” Also, probably not a great idea to include Prince Albert and Princess Charlene of Monaco, what with those pesky rumors that she’s miserable and tried to run off to her native South Africa before the wedding.
But include them they did! So, this week’s question is this — if Charles and Diana somehow prove that fairy tales come true, what other complete real-life disasters can be spun as fairy tales, so long as you leave out important bits?
