Box set containing two popular feature films. In 'The Princess Diaries' (2001), San Francisco teenager Mia Thermopolis (Anne Hathaway) just wants to get through the rigours of high school unharmed, avoiding as many of life's petty embarassments as possible. However, when her long-lost grandmother Clarisse (Julie Andrews) appears out of the blue, Mia gets the surprise of her life; it seems she is the princess of a tiny principality called Genovia, and is in fact next in line to the throne. Angry that this news has been kept from her, Mia nevertheless agrees to embark on a crash course of princess lessons. But when she begins to get lost in a comic flurry of bungled state engagements and over-eager media attention, the prospective princess begins to wonder if the royal life is really the right life for her. In 'The Princess Diaries 2 - Royal Engagement' (2004), American high school graduate Mia Thermopolis has just turned 21, and is being groomed to succeed her grandmother as Queen of Genovia. But it materialises that an ancient Genovian law decrees that unmarried women cannot take the throne, and the bitter Viscount Mabrey (John Rhys-Davies) and his cronies oppose her coronation. When Queen Clarice (Julie Andrews) asks that Mia be given 30 days to find a husband, Mabrey is reluctant to allow it - but little does he know that his own nephew, the young and handsome Nicholas (Chris Pine), has caught Mia's eye.
