King Harold from Shrek

King Harold is a supporting character in the Shrek movies. He is the king of Far Far Away and the father of Princess Fiona. Inspired by “The Princess and the Frog,” Harold was born a frog, and a kiss from Queen Lillian turned him human. In the second movie, it’s clear the king doesn’t like Shrek, prompting a fight at the dinner table. He conspires to kill Shrek with the Fairy Godmother because she wants her son, Prince Charming, to marry Fiona. When he sees his daughter’s unhappiness, the king feels guilty, and makes a last minute decision not to use the magic potion against her. He makes the ultimate sacrifice by jumping in front of her wand blast towards Shrek, which kills the Fairy Godmother but turns him back into a frog. He apologizes to Shrek and gives his blessing to marry Fiona. In the third movie, on his deathbed, Harold tells Shrek to find Arthur Pendragon if he doesn’t want to be the next king. King Harold was voiced by comedian and Monty Python member John Cleese. Use the white face paint to color your brows and draw on a goatee.
