In <b>THE PRINCESS DIARIES 2: ROYAL ENGAGEMENT</b> Mia (Anne Hathaway, “<i>Ella Enchanted</i>”)
is ready to assume her role as princess of Genovia. But no sooner has she moved into the Royal Palace
with her beautiful, wise grandmother Queen Clarisse (Julie Andrews, Academy Award® winner Best
Actress “<i>Mary Poppins</i>” 1964) than she learns her days as a princess are numbered – Mia’s got to lose the
tiara and immediately take the crown herself. As if getting ready to rule wasn’t enough, the stakes for
Mia have never been higher- with Genovian law stating that princesses must be married before being
crowned, Mia’s in for a parade of suitors who’d all like to be her king. The sparkling cast includes
