She Wanted to Be a Princess, Dad Made it Happen
Seven year old Emily Heaton wanted to be a princess and dad, Jeremiah, made it happen. After doing an online search he found an 800 square mile unclaimed patch of land in the African desert and planted a flag, making himself king and Emily princess.
Heaton traveled there to plant the flag getting permission from Egyptian authorities to travel to the unclaimed land. He said he did it to show his three kids he would go to the ends of the Earth to make their dreams come true.
To claim the land legally he needs to be recognized by neighboring countries or the United Nations, he’s already looking into it.
