(man) Although your diplomas

are equally specific, remember:

you are all going out

into the world as individuals.

l now proudly present

this year's Woodrow Wilson School

of Public and lnternational Affairs

graduating class.

Go, go, go.

- Bye. We love you.

- You have to write.

- Thank your mom for all the cookies, OK?

- l'm very proud of you.

(Mia) Dear diary.

Well, it's me. Brand-new

college graduate-slash-princess.

Oh, I can't believe it's been five years

since Grandma told me

that I was a princess.

Me? A... a princess? Shut up.

And right after that,

my mother surprised me

by marrying my high-school teacher,

Patrick O'Connell.

It must be going well,

because they are now expecting a baby.

Lilly's remained the same,

as she continues to cause turmoil,

but now as a graduate

student at Berkeley.

Which she calls ''Berserkeley. ''

''How's Michael?''you may ask.

Well, we're just friends now, as he

went off to tour the country with his band.

Princess Mia.

Look out the window,

and welcome back to Genovia.

Oh, there it is. My beautiful Genovia.

Of course, I'm completely excited to be

going back, but I'm also a bit nervous.

(man) Genovia One has landed.

(Mia) Grandma Clarisse will step down

by the end of this year as queen,

and I'll be taking over, since I'm now 2 1.

Mira, la princesa Mia.

lt's the princess from America! Hi.

(man) Viva la princesa.

I know I studied diplomacy

and political science at school, but...

there is no course in ''Queen, ''

or ''How To Run A Country 10 1. ''

But Grandma's going to help me, and

I'll take over when she thinks I'm ready.

Of course, I wonder... will I ever be ready?

In the meantime, I'm going to live

in a beautiful palace like in a fairy tale,

and eventually sit on a throne

and rule the people of Genovia.

Is that scary or what?

Well, maybe Fat Louie

can give me some help.

Her Royal Highness Princess Amelia

Mignonette Thermopolis Renaldi

has arrived.

Welcome home, Princess.

And her royal pussycat, Sir Fat Louie.

The one downer in my fairy tale

is I've never been in love.

Countess Puck of Austria.

However, this evening

is my 2 1st-birthday party,

and our tradition says I have to dance

with all the eligible bachelors in Genovia.

So maybe I'll meet

my Prince Charming tonight.

(woman) The queen is coming.

Here she comes. Look alive.


She'll have a double-door entrance.

The eagle is flying.

Repeat, the eagle is flying.

She's in the foyer.


But you're late, Your Majesty.

A queen is never late.

Everyone else is simply early.

Of course.

(man) Her Majesty

Clarisse Renaldi,

Queen of Genovia.


Greetings, good friends.

l am delighted

to welcome you here this evening.

(? chamber music)

- Thank you.

- l hope they have string cheese.

Ah, good.

Many of you will remember King Rupert's

and my granddaughter, Princess Mia.

(all) King Rupert. May he rest in peace.

Will you please

raise your glasses in celebration

of Princess Mia's 21 st birthday.

Presenting Her Royal Highness

Amelia Mignonette Thermopolis Renaldi,

Princess of Genovia.



To Princess Mia.

(all) To Princess Mia.

- lt happens all the time.

- Oh!

- And happy birthday.

- Thank you.

(speaks Greek)

- Oh, l don't speak Greek.

- (speaks Greek)

- And you obviously don't speak English.

- (speaks Greek)

One, two, three.

One, two, three.

One, two, three. One, two, three.

- One, two...

- Ow!


(muttering in French)

- Have you met the princess yet?

- Briefly. But she wasn't very friendly.

l got a hello and a goodbye.
