Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.
Mia is a tall, socially awkward teenager who was raised by her liberal artist mother Helen in Greenwich Village, Manhattan. Her parents had a brief fling and separated before she was born; she sees her father Phillipe Renaldo, whom she is told is a Genovian politician, mostly when she spends every summer at her grandmère (grandmother) Clarisse's French chateau, Miragnac.
Mia's world is thrown upside down when her father, who recently underwent treatment for testicular cancer, finds out he cannot have any more children--because he is really Prince Artur Cristoff Gerard Grimaldi Renaldo of Genovia, and he informs her that since he cannot produce another heir, she is now AmeliaMignonette Grimaldi Thermopolis Renaldo, Her Royal Highness, the princess of Genovia.
Mia does not adjust to this news easily; but she certainly objects when her father informs her she must now move to Genovia to learn to be a princess. Eventually, Grandmère decides to come to America to provide "princess lessons, " which her father offers to pay her for. Mia declines, but asks instead that her father donate a hundred dollars a day to Greenpeace.
