Mia Thermopolis (Anne Hathaway) is a high-school girl who lives with her artist mom in a renovated fire station. Though she isn't the most popular girl at school, she has a good time with her best friend Lily. Lily's brother Michael is also a good friend, but little does Mia know that he has a big crush on her. Mia comes home from school one day and learns that the father she never met is the king of a tiny European country called Genovia, and she is the heir to the throne. Her grandmother the queen (Julie Andrews) comes to visit her, and proceeds to give her lessons in etiquette and royal charm. With the help of the royal stylist and her prim and proper grandmother, Mia is transformed from awkward teenager into gorgeous princess. The popular crowd at school starts to take notice of Mia, and her newfound fame starts to change her. She starts neglecting her old friends and starts to date the most popular boy in school. However, as Mia becomes closer to the crown she realizes that this behavior is anything but princess-like, and she tries to fix all her mistakes.
