The Princess Diaries Guide To Life

After seeing "The Princess Diaries" for the first time at the age of 6, I always hoped that one of my grandmothers would reveal that I was actually a secret princess. Sadly, I never did get my surprise tiara, but "The Princess Diaries" did teach me that if you wanna be royalty, you gotta act like it.

1. Expect the unexpected rise to the throne.

Hey, life can change in a heartbeat. I mean, we might think we're doomed to be invisible forever, but then our formerly estranged grandmother visits just to tell us that we are the heiress to the throne of a small European country and suddenly, we can't even walk to school without being bombarded by the paparazzi. Talk about a game changer.

2. Good posture leads to success.

She's has impeccable manners and perfect posture, and she's played by Julie Andrews? Queen Clarisse is a straight up goddess who knows the value in standing up straight. After all, *Julie Andrews voice* royalty doesn't slump.

3. You can have brains and beauty.

Sure, Lilly isn't always the greatest best friend to Mia, but she does come in clutch with this witty comeback when Lana and her little minions rag on Mia's princess makeover. Remember kids, you can care about what's in your head and on it. (But hey, school always comes first.)

4. But some mornings, hair (and everything else) will just do what it wants.

One day, you look like a princess prepping for her coronation and the next, you wake up in dire need of Paolo's help. Sadly, we can't all have a hair and make up team at our disposal. Whelp. It is what it is.

5. Always pack a healthy snack.

If Mia can remember to pack soy nuts on the way to her undoubtedly stressful first meeting with her royal grandmother, you have no excuse.

6. Take time for YOU. Other people can wait.

Treat yourself like the royalty you are. That means letting yourself have all the time you need to get ready for certain events and social gatherings. Who cares if your friends and loyal subjects have to wait? They just happen to be early and for that we commend them.

7. And know when it's time to take a break.

Falling out of your chair could be an indicator that you need a little afternoon tea pick-me-up (literally).

8. Your true friends will ALWAYS see you.

...even when you think no one else does.

9. This little essential piece of life advice.

Enough said.

10. If all else fails, remember that "miracles happen, once in a while."

"...If you believe."
