From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Princess Diaries series, comes the very first adult installment, which follows Princess Mia and her Prince Charming as they plan their fairy tale wedding—but a few poisoned apples could turn this happily-ever-after into a royal nightmare.
For Princess Mia, the past five years since college graduation have been a whirlwind of activity, what with living in New York City, running her new teen community center, being madly in love, and attending royalengagements. And speaking of engagements. Mia’s gorgeous longtime boyfriend Michael managed to clear both their schedules just long enough for an exotic (and very private) Caribbean island interlude where he popped the question! Of course Mia didn’t need to consult her diary to know that her answer was a royaloui.
But now Mia has a scandal of majestic proportions to contend with: Her grandmother’s leaked “fake”wedding plans to the press that could cause even normally calm Michael to become a runaway groom. Worse, a scheming politico is trying to force Mia’s father from the throne, all because of a royal secret that could leave Genovia without a monarch. Can Mia prove to everyone—especially herself—that she’s not only ready to wed, but ready to rule as well?

Five years after college graduation Her Royal Highness, Mia Thermompolis has a lot on her plate. She runs a teen community center- well, when she can, still goes out with her high school sweetheart Michael and attends as many political engagements as she can to better Genovia. Even more is added to her plate with negative media attention and increased paparazzi when her father is arrested for speeding and his place in the Genovian prime minister polls drops. Media outlets also wonder when the heck Mia will ever get married while at the same time hounding her for the refugee situation in Genovia and the GMO Genovian oranges. Michael whisks Mia away from all this to their own private island getaway where he finally proposes. Mia is overjoyed until she finds out that fake wedding plans and even a date have already been leaked to the press in order to cover up an even bigger scandal of her father’s before she even returns home.
Princess Mia Thermompolis is back! I remember when the first book came out and I fell in love with Mia, her quirks and her transformation into a princess. Now, eleven books later, I feel like we have grown up together. Don’t worry if you haven’t read all eleven books though, you can jump right into Royal Wedding. I love that Mia’s core personality has not changed throughout all of these books; she has grown into an adult and a wonderful princess but is still the same Mia at heart. She still loves her dorky TV shows, has the same friends and a wonderful heart, but she is still nowhere near perfect and continues to make blunders that any normal person would make. Mia and Michael’s relationship continues to be super-sweet and Michael was super supportive, level-headed and hilarious. I’m so glad that Mia had a beautiful wedding and that I have had a chance to see her through adulthood. I don’t know how I feel yet about Mia’s little sister, but she sure seems awfully cute!
