Anne Hathaway celebrates 15 years of The Princess Diaries PERFECTLY

It’s hard to believe it’s been 15 years since Anne Hathaway first played Mia Thermopolis in The Princess Diaries.

And while the film’s anniversary has left us feeling both nicely nostalgic and bloody ancient, it seems to have given its lead some grateful feels.

Yesterday the 33-year-old actress took to Instagram to mark the occasion with a dancing Princess Mia gif and a few heartfelt words.

She wrote: “It’s been 15 years (say it with me) SHUT UP!!!!!!  To all the fans who loved Mia, Louie, Lily, Joe, Michael and, of course, Queen Clarisse, thank you from the bottom of my heart.”

Anne continued her message by paying tribute to the film’s director Garry Marshall who died last month at the age of 81.

The star said: “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 Alice in Wonderland star made her film debut in The Princess Diaries in 2001.  Three years later she reprised her role as Mia for the The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement.

Earlier this year it was rumoured that a third movie could be added to the series, but as of yet no progress seems to have been made on that front so for now we'll just have to wait with fingers crossed.
