Fifteen years ago, we were introduced to Mia Thermopolis in The Princess Diaries. Though awkward, she overcame her fears, and became the compassionate leader of Genovia. To celebrate the film’s milestone anniversary, Anne Hathaway, the actress behind the beloved protagonist, posted a nostalgic image on Instagram. Check it out below:
In the image description, Hathaway said:
“It’s been 15 years (say it with me): SHUT UP!!!!! To all the fans who have loved Mia, Louie, Lily, Joe, Michael and, of course, Queen Clarisse, thank you from the bottom of my heart!”
She continued, “And to Garry Marshall, thank you for making me a princess. I love you always my beloved friend and teacher, and I miss you every day xx”
The only thing left for us to do now is go home and rewatch The Princess Diaries.
