I think we all are happy the Royal Wedding has come and gone, as nice as it was. I believe in not waiting for other people to call us queens and kings and choosing to be royal. I was also excited to interview a woman who officially had Princess as her title for my Love Jones column at Jones Magazine.

Princess Keisha and her story with Prince Kunle  sounds straight out of “Coming to America.” And as the queen of saying “I got a man” when I didn’t and being Miss Independent, Keisha was all on my toes with her tale.

It goes a little something like this . . .
It was the busiest time of the year for model Keisha Omilana: New York Fashion Week. On the heels of her national Pantene ad, she was trying to find a casting and chatting away with her Ford Models agent in 2004.

Prince Kunle Omilana watched her and waited half an hour. He then introduced himself, said she was the most beautiful woman he’d ever seen and asked her out. She declined, made up a fake boyfriend and went down the train station stairs.
“My woman’s intuition said go back,” she says. “And when I did he was there waiting and told me ‘This is the best decision you have ever made.’ ”

And it has turned out to be just that. “I knew he was special on our first date. He had rose petals that led to our table and looked in my eyes the whole night.” Now the two are happily married and run the Wonderful Brand, which features fashion, television and online properties. Along with business, their style is also in sync.

Nigerian Prince Kunle came to New York from London to find his bride, a la “Coming to America.”  Princess Keisha had no clue he was royal, until meeting his family shortly before he proposed. She was happy to find a man who celebrated her success. “The first thing he loved about me is that I was driven, independent and a career girl.”
