A brand-new new adult instalment of the most popular YA series in all the land! Princess Mia is engaged to be married, but since when in Mia's life did anything go to plan?! Fall back in love with Mia in this new book for older readers.From Meg Cabot, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Princess Diaries series, comes the very first new adult instalment, featuring the now grown-up Princess Mia!Royal Wedding 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 centre, being madly in love, and attending royal engagements. 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 royal oui.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?
Reading this made me realise how much I miss this girl! Royal Wedding was like seeing an old friend again, comfortable and very exciting.
I did feel like I should have read the rest of the series, I think I stopped at book six originally, because I ‘was too old’ – I know better now! So that would have helped in the reading of this for all the little things, like what happened to Lana and Boris? Frankly those things shocked me most because I wasn’t prepared!
Despite being a decade older, Mia is exactly as I remember her – with her hypochondriac ways, her head-on nature and quirky personality and way of thinking. Basically she is awesome!
Can I just say that with the ending I was left on I at least need a sequel? Pretty please 🙂 because I can not be left there! Also I’ve been made to fall in love with the Princess Diaries all over again. Which means I obviously need more!
Royal Wedding made me wish for my teen years, and like the other Princess Diaries books, this is bound to make you laugh, for all the fans of The Princess Diaries out there this is the book for you. And for those who have yet to read, go read, you will not be disappointed!
