Shy San Francisco teenager Mia Thermopolis (Anne Hathaway) is thrown for a spin when, from out of the blue, she learns the astonishing news that she's a real-life princess! As the heir apparent to the crown of the small European principality of Genovia, Mia begins a comical journey towards the throne when her strict and formidable grandmother, Queen Clarisse Renaldi (Julie Andrews), shows up to give her princess lessons.
The two instantly clash - Mia has no intention of leaving her normal life to become the ruler of a far-off country, while Queen Clarisse insists it is her duty. Clarisse is determined to do a complete makeover of this sparkling - if not polished - diamond in the rough, in order that she take her rightful place in the royal line of succession. Now the reluctant princess must make the biggest decision of her life - whether to remain with her family - or leave everything behind to accept the royal responsibilities that comes with being the Princess of Genovia.
