A youngster was transformed into a princess for a day after winning a national competition.

Jasmine Gilbert, 4, of Daley Thompson Way, Battersea, was treated to a Disney themed day out around London on Thursday.

She was awarded the prize after entering a competition ran by Rubie's fancy dress who were on a mission to find a worthy princess.

Jasmine spent the day travelling down the Mall, past Buckingham Palace and around the Royal Parks in a horse drawn carriage.

She was then given £100 to spend in Harrods, as well as a personal tour of the toy department and a visit to Santa's Grotto.

The Disney mad youngster bought herself a Cinderella dress, and also let her five-year-old brother Hayden Gilbert buy a toy.

To round the day off Jasmine and her family were taken to Disney Headquarters to watch her favourite film Brave in a private screening room.

Claire Gilbert, Jasmine's mother, said: "Jasmine was over the moon when she found out she was going to become a princess for the day.

"It felt like a dream come true riding through London in such a magnificent carriage pulled by horses."
