Prince Derek is a supporting character in Barbie in The 12 Dancing Princesses. He is voiced by Shawn MacDonald. Derek was the royal shoe cobbler and he had romantic feelings for Princess Genevieve.


When Derek arrives at the castle, the princesses rush to meet him and receive their new ballet shoes. When Derek, awkwardly, gives the new shoes to Genevieve and she starts to dance, it becomes clear that Derek is in love with her, but he can't say it to Genevieve. By Genevieve's request, Derek finds the apothecary and asks him about Rowena. He gives the apothecary his horse, instead of his bird for Queen Isabella's silver goblet. After, he sneaks into the princesses' bedroom and discovers magical stones. He finds the princesses in the pavilion and tells to them about Rowena's plan.

When Desmond breaks magical stones, golden pollen tells them to escape from the pavilion. Fallon, the most romantic princess, says that Genevieve and Derek should dance together. It helps, and the princesses return to their castle. In the King's apartment, Derek trips Desmond in the process of Genevieve luring him into a trap, and he helps Genevieve defeat the armored knights that was resurrected by Rowena's wish. Genevieve and her sisters appear in the castle's garden at the end of the film, and King Randolph leads Genevieve to the altar; Derek and Genevieve are getting married. Derek takes her hand, and the family all dance in the garden as Derek became a prince and a member of the family.

Physical Appearance

Derek has light skin, blue eyes and short brown hair. He wears a black top, brown pants and black boots.


Derek is a pleasant person with a sense of humor, but, before he and Genevieve got together, he was shy and awkward around her. He's a courageous man.
