Reality surpasses fiction. Always. If not, ask Chelita , a young woman from San Isidro (Buenos Aires) who one day met a prince and got married. That's right: Máxima Zorreguieta was not the first Argentine to become a princess (and, if applicable, then queen).
When the 1940s was coming to an end, Prince Birabongse Bhanutej Bhanubandh, better known as Bira , came to Argentina to participate in an auto race, the Eva Perón Grand Prix , which was ran in Palermo. He was the heir of the Kingdom of Siam , composed of three Southeast Asian countries: Thailand, Cambodia and Laos.
Celia “Chelita” Howard worked at the time at the Automobile Club Argentino. Her life was like that of any girl in Buenos Aires at that time. Until one day a common friend showed Prince Bira a photo of her: the man instantly fell in love and did not rest until conquering her. He asked his brother for his hand and finally crossed the ocean together by boat.
On December 18, 1951, they married at the Embassy of the Kingdom of Siam in Paris . Chelita lived several years between luxuries, cars and trips. They had a son, Biradej. But one day love ended. Prince Bira was unfaithful to him and Chelita couldn't stand it: he abandoned him , left Bangkok and came with her son to Buenos Aires. He tried to get her back, but it was in vain. She had a strong temperament and very clear ideas.
Chelita stopped being a princess, but that magical story still makes her gaze shine. Today, at 96, she is still a woman with whom any prince could fall in love with.
