Chloe’s magical day out with Cinderella

LIKE many little girls, Chloe Green has always dreamed of becoming a princess.

But this week, not only did the three-year-old get to be one, she also got to meet one too.

Chloe, who has Wilms’ Tumour – which is a type of kidney cancer that affects young children – was treated on Monday to a day of pomp and pageantry with none other than Cinderella in the fairytale setting of Norwich’s Dunston Hall.

Her wish to be and to meet a princess was granted by Make-A-Wish Foundation UK, the charity that grants magical wishes to children and young people fighting life-threatening illnesses.

Chloe, from Redgrave, near Diss, who is undergoing chemotherapy and is frequently in and out of hospital, was in need of a special day out.

Together with parents Tracey and Marcus, her brother Luke, six, and sister Eloise, four, Chloe was whisked by limousine to Dunston Hall, clad in a pink dress and tiara, where Cinderella was there to greet her.

Cinderella showed Chloe the art of glitter make-up and colouring-in before a horse and carriage rolled up to the mansion to take them on a regal tour of the grounds.
