The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement is a sequel of The Princess Diaries which was released in 2004.

Anne Hathaway, Julie Andrews, Hector Elizondo, and Heather Matarazzo return to portray their characters from the first Princess Diaries film, Princess Mia Thermopolis, Queen Clarisse Renaldi, Joe and Lilly Moscovitz accordingly. Garry Marshall also returned to direct the sequel.

New characters include Viscount Mabrey, played by John Rhys-Davies, the evil nobleman who tries steal the throne from the House of Renaldi. The viscount's nephew, Nicholas Devereaux, who eventually turns against his uncle is played by Chris Pine, who previously had never appeared in a film. Andrew Jacoby, the man whom Mia is supposed to marry, is played by Callum Blue.


In the film, Mia Thermopolis journeys in Europe for vacation before taking up her job as princess of Genovia. She continues her royalty lessons and prepares herself to take up the throne as queen of Genovia, when Viscount Mabrey, who wants his nephew to rule as king, brings up a little known--and rarely enforced--law that a princess must marry before taking the throne. The Genovian Parliament therefore gives Mia thirty days to marry.

Mia, with her romantic fantasies of true love, is aghast to discovers the only way to prevent Genovia from falling into Nicholas Devereaux's hands is an arranged marriage. After seeing a list of choices, Mia chooses Andrew Jacoby. Mabrey is furious and decides to have his nephew to woo Mia, so she falls in love with him and dosen't marry Andrew. However, Nicholas starts to have second thoughts about his uncle's deceitful plans.

Nicholas travels to the wedding on an old-fashioned bicycle in order to stop the marriage (though he has apparent plan for doing so.) However, Mia changes her mind about marrying Andrew at the last minute, making the interference of Nicholas unnecessary. Mia asks Parliament to change the law and, to Mabrey's chagrin, they agree.

Rather than letting all the wedding preparation go to waste, Queen Clarisse and Joe, who have been having a sort-of romance since the death Clarisse's husband, decide to marry. This is often seen as an example of fan service, since the pairing of Clarisse and Joe was extremely popular among fans of the first film.
