"The Princess Diaries" was a breakout hit that made Anne Hathaway's name and introduced Julie Andrews to a whole new generation of fans. It tells the story of Mia Thermopolis, who lives in San Francisco as the daughter of a single mother and has no idea that she is anything other than an ordinary American teenager. Her world is turned upside down when it turns out that her deceased father was, in fact, the heir to the kingdom of Genovia, a European country - and her grandmother, the queen, has come to get her in order to groom her to take her rightful place in the line of succession.
Mia is initially skeptical and considers rejecting her destiny. She's never been one of the cool kids and can't take the scrutiny or the pressure. Maybe it's easier to just be ordinary. However, with the aid of Queen Clarisse, as well as best friend Lilly Moscowitz and nerdy rocker love interest Michael Moscowitz, Mia soon learns that accepting a position of such power will give her the opportunity to do great things for other people and for causes that she - and they - believe in. So let's find out which of the folks who help her destiny come to fruition you are most like!
