(CBS) A new princess is being crowned in London this week, but it has nothing to do with the House of Windsor.

The house of Disney is holding the "coronation" at Kensington Palace - the London home of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, among other royals - on Sunday to welcome Rapunzel, star of the animated movie "Tangled," into the Disney Princess royal court.

Celebrities such as Nicole Richie and her family and Naked Chef Jaime Oliver will be on hand for the festivities which begin with parade of all 10 Disney princesses from the Queen's Gate through Kensington Gardens to the palace.

The other Disney princesses are Ariel, Aurora, Belle, Cinderella, Jasmine, Mulan, Pocahontas, Snow White and Tiana, all characters from Disney animated films.

Also attending the "coronation" will be selected "princesses" from around the world including the Senio family from Centreville, Va., who entered and won a "Princess Moment" video contest. The prize was a trip to London for Laurie Senio and her three daughters, Allie (age 8), and Sammie (age 7) and Katie (age 3).
