SCORES OF PRINCESSES AND PRINCES DESCEND ON CARDIFF’S CITY CENTRE TO MARK THE LAUNCH OF RAKUTEN TO THE UK
Local princes and princesses got dressed in glamorous get-up in Cardiff to celebrate the launch of Rakuten.co.uk, the new online marketplace.
Congregating by Rakuten’s Superbag on Cardiff’s Churchill Way on Saturday, the revelers were joined by a video transmission of pop star ‘Princess’ Natasha Hamilton who geed up the crowd for a mass sing-a-long to Let It Go from Disney’s Frozen. Shortly afterwards princes and princesses settled down to watch the film on the big screen, courtesy of on-demand streaming service, Wuaki tv, part of the Rakuten family.
Natasha Hamilton commented, “I’m so happy to be a part of the launch of Rakuten.co.uk –the day provided plenty of fun for all involved and was wonderful to see so many gorgeous girls and boys turn up…who doesn’t love a bit of fairytale magic!”
Natasha continued, “But the fun doesn’t end here in Cardiff, Rakuten’s Superbag will be visiting Glasgow next Saturday 22nd November when we hope to see hundreds more pretty princesses and handsome princes descend upon St Enoch’s Place from 11am to do the same again!”
Mike Bishop, UK MD of Rakuten Group, “It was fantastic to see so many princesses and princes all in one place, marking the launch of the Rakuten Group to the UK. As a brand who has entertainment at our heart, what better way to treat the princes and princesses of Cardiff than to a free screening of Frozen with an energetic sing-a-long.”
