Snow White Prince Age
The Snow White Prince is the love interest of Snow White in Disney’s 1937 film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. He is voiced by Bill Shirley.
The Prince is first seen at his coronation, where he dances with Snow White.
He later appears at her cottage, offering her a single red rose as a symbol of his love for her. When the Evil Queen sends out a huntsman to kill Snow White, the Prince follows him into the forest. After finding Snow White unconscious, he fights off the Huntsman and gives Snow White true love’s first kiss, reviving her.
The two finally get married in front of all their friends (including the Seven Dwarfs) and live happily ever after. Although never given an actual name in the film, merchandise refers to him as “Prince Florian”, while The Walt Disney Company officially identifies him as “Prince Charming”.

How Old was Sleeping Beauty in the Movie?
In the original Sleeping Beauty film, Princess Aurora is seen as a baby, toddler and young adult. Her age is never explicitly stated in the movie, but she appears to be around 6 or 7 years old when she is first cursed by Maleficent, and 16 or 17 years old when she finally meets her prince.
How Old was Snow White When She Kissed the Prince?
When Snow White kissed the prince, she was either 14 or 15 years old. The original story does not give her an exact age, but later versions of the story have her as being 14 years old. This would make sense, as she is still young and naïve enough to believe that a kiss from a stranger will break the curse placed on her by the Evil Queen.
Who’S the Oldest Disney Princess?

Sleeping Beauty was a popular fairy tale for many years, and the story has been retold countless times. In most versions of the story, Sleeping Beauty is put into a deep sleep by an evil witch or fairy, and she can only be awakened by true love’s kiss. But how old was her prince when he finally arrived to save her?
The original version of the story, written by Charles Perrault in 1697, doesn’t give an age for the prince. He’s simply described as “handsome” and “charming.” However, later versions of the story often depict the prince as being much younger than Sleeping Beauty.
For example, in Disney’s 1959 animated film Sleeping Beauty, Prince Phillip is only 18 years old. There are some who believe that Sleeping Beauty was intended to be much older than her prince. After all, she is sleeping for 100 years in most versions of the story.
This would make sense from a historical perspective, as it was not uncommon for young women to marry men who were much older than them. Regardless of their ages, Sleeping Beauty and her prince always end up happily ever after.
