(So no heir to the throne.) Shock of the Century: Like it or not, Mia Thermopolis is prime princess material.

Well, her father can lecture her until he's royal-blue in the face about her princessly duty -- no way is she moving to Genovia and leaving Manhattan behind. But what's a girl to do when her name is Princess Amelia Mignonette Grimaldi Thermopolis Renaldo?
