The Princess Diaries Turns 15! See Anne Hathaway's Perfect Tribute

Erin Fitzpatrick

Can you believe it’s been 15 years since The Princess Diaries came out? That’s right—the now cult flick with Anne Hathaway, Julie Andrews, Mandy Moore, and other lovable stars is officially older than your teenage niece. Raise your hand if you still say “princess of Genovia” in Andrews’s accent and have memorized some of the movie’s most quotable lines, like “Just in case I wasn’t enough of a freak already, let’s add a tiara.”

In honor of the 15th anniversary today, Hathaway took to Instagram to post a sweet tribute—and a hilariously nostalgic GIF. “It’s been 15 years (say it with me) SHUT UP!!!!!” she captioned the photo. “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 finished the caption with a touching note to the movie’s late director, who passed away last month. “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.”
