A little over a week ago, my family and I attended a “VIP Media Night” at the Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament in Lyndhurst, New Jersey. We had visited the show back in 2016 which you can read about on the post, Medieval Times NJ Transports You Back in Time. The reason that we went again is that the show has changed in one major way – a queen reigns for the first time in its 34-year history! The Knights now battle to impress Her Royal Highness, Dona Maria Isabella instead of a king. As modern-day women march to advocate for women’s rights, it’s good to see a woman play the more powerful role of tournament host in this production.
Representation matters so I think that it’s a great thing to see the Queen as a type of leadership role model. If watching it can encourage just one little girl to show up in a more powerful way in life, then it’s worth the change. The knights in the show also have brand new helmets and costumes. The rest of the show is the same or similar – six knights battle – jousting and sword-fighting; horses perform; a falcon flies around the audience; and birthdays and special events are celebrated.
