The Princess Diaries

When a mother reveals to her shy daughter, Mia Thermopolis (Hathaway) that she is actually related to a member of the royal family in the small European country of Genovia, the 16-year-old girl is pressed into taking princess lessons from her grandmother Queen Clarisse Renaldi (Andrews). Clarisse is determined that Mia return to Genovia and take her rightful place as successor to the throne.

Not wishing to leave her normal life in San Francisco and a budding relationship with her best friend's brother (Schwartzman), Mia must make a decision between her desires and duty.
