A very funny version of this story. The Prince and his parents are searching for a bride but there are problems. One princess turns into a mouse at night and another princess is a shopaholic airhead!

So what’s to be done? Well, the Palace Fairy has to sort things out, so she embarks on a tour of the country to find a suitable girl, which proves to be rather difficult. Eventually she finds one but the Queen insists that the girl undergoes a “princess” trial by placing a pea under several mattresses. Anyone who is truly a princess will find the pea uncomfortable and be unable to sleep.
