The Princess Diaries

Synopsis: Mia Thermopolis is the average teenager - sweet, a little geeky and pretty much invisible to everyone with the exception of her mother, best friend Lilly and Lilly's older brother Michael. Making it through high school without throwing up is a challenge in itself for Mia, so it doesn't come as welcome news when her estranged grandmother shows up out of the blue and calmly informs her that she is in fact the heir to the throne of a European country called Genovia. Suddenly Mia's life is thrown into complete overload. She's being taught about scarves, waves and pears in order to become a perfect princess, she gets a makeover and a tough looking yet sweet bodyguard/limo driver called Joe. Things get out of hand when the media gets a hold of the story and suddenly Mia is thrust into the spotlight in both the newspapers and in school. On top of all that Mia has a choice to make. She must decide by Genovia's Independence Day Ball whether she longs to relinquish her claim on the throne or to

- No problem.


You sure you can't help me

with my spotted owl petition?

I told you. I'm meeting my grandmother

after school.


The school tours are on Saturday,

young lady.

I'm here for a meeting

with my grandmother.


Clarisse Renaldi.

Please come to the front door.

Thank you very much.

Get off the grass!

Welcome, Miss Thermopolis.

We've been expecting you.

Be careful.

Please don't crush my soy nuts.

Your soy nuts are safe.

- OK.

- Right this way.

Please, make yourself comfortable.

...Special food for their daughter.

She's allergic to peanuts.

And we need new pillows

for the Prime Minister's wife.

She's allergic to goosefeathers.

Hello, Amelia.

I'm Charlotte,

from the Genovian Attache Corps.

Hi. It's nice to meet you.

- Where am I?

- The Genovian Consulate.

You've got pears in your flowers.

Genovian pears.

We're famous for them.

Now, if you'll sit down,

she'll be with you in a moment.

I don't need a moment. I'm here.

- Amelia, I'm so glad you could come.

- Hi.

- You've got a great place.

- Thank you.

Let me look at you.

You look so... young.

Thank you.

And you look so...


Charlotte, would you go and check

on tea in the garden?

Please, sit.


My mom said you wanted to talk

to me about something, so... shoot.

Before I... shoot, I have something

I want to give you.


Thank you.


It's the Genovian Crest.

It was mine when I was young.

And that was my great grandmother's.

I'll keep this safe.

I will take good care of it.

What did you want to tell me?

Something I think will have

a big impact upon your life.

- I already have braces.

- It's bigger than orthodontia.

The tea is served, ma'am.

Amelia, have you ever heard of

Edward Christof Philippe Grard Renaldi?


He was the Crown Prince of Genovia.
