Why Elsa Not Having a Prince in Frozen Is Actually a Problem
And of course she couldn't explain any of this to Anna. Elsa had to have been undergoing training for her future rule as queen, whereas Anna spent most of her isolation going stir-crazy with longing for human affection. It all makes sense!
Then I realized that even though there was dancing and a party, likely specifically held to help her begin the process of finding a husband to continue the royal line, Elsa does not seem to consider any responsibility to attend to visiting royalty for that purpose. No, not every woman needs a man or vice versa, but every monarchy does need babies. Yet neither Elsa nor the majority of her guests pursue this basic function of their ruling class.
I understand that none of this is what the movie is about. And hey, you could also take the whole plot where Elsa reveals and masters her powers to be an act of establishing even more independent power for Arendelle despite nothing like that being hinted at in the film. I'm happy to see a string of Dinsey films empowering young girls by having heroines that do not require romantic counterparts to complete or define them. That's very much progress.
On the other hand, I do wish they'd quit making their points using outdated systems of government where this stuff is simply unfeasible. It would make the adults goaded into over-analyzation through repeated viewings a little less twitchy. At least it would me.
