A 6-year-old girl who lives with a rare genetic disorder was all smiles Saturday as the Tournament of Roses and Make-A-Wish teamed up to make her wish of becoming a Rose Princess a reality.

Rose suffers from a disorder called Sanfilippo syndrome, which mainly affects her brain and spine, according to Make-A-Wish Greater Los Angeles. She is also autistic and has cognitive developmental delays.

The energetic young girl loves people, princesses and celebrations, so it seemed a natural fit to coronate Rose as Rose Parade royalty for the 2020 Rose Parade, volunteers said.

Her special day included a makeover,  including a custom princess dress, a carriage ride through Pasadena hosted by a Pasadena police officer as her "Prince Charming," a royal tea party and greetings from adoring royal subjects.
