Welcome to The Royal Library of Genovia, TheFanlistings.org‘s approved fanlisting for Meg Cabot’s book series The Princess Diaries.
The Princess What?
The Princess Diaries are a series of young adult books authored by Meg Cabot. As of October 2018, the series includes the following books (in chronological story order, rather than publication order; alternative titles are listed in parentheses):
- Volume 1: Princess Diaries
- Volume 2: Princess in the Spotlight (Take Two/A Royal Disaster)
- Volume 3: Princess in Love (Third Time Lucky/Princess in the Middle)
- Volume 4: Princess in Waiting (Mia Goes Fourth/Royally Obsessed)
- Volume 4.5: Project Princess

- Spin-Off Series (Middle Grade), Volume 1: From the Notebooks of a Middle School Princess
- Volume 11 (for Adults): Royal Wedding
- Spin-Off Series (Middle Grade), Volume 2: Royal Wedding Disaster (Bridesmaid-in-Training)
- Spin-Off Series (Middle Grade), e-short: Royal Day Out
- Spin-Off Series (Middle Grade), Volume 3: Royal Crush
- Spin-Off Series (Middle Grade), Volume 4: Royal Crown
- Volume 12 (for Adults): The Quarantine Princess Diaries (expected March 2023)
Some books were collected into special omnibus editions. These are:
- Volumes 1-2: Mia Tells It Like It Is
- Volumes 3-4: The Highs and Lows of Being Mia
- Volumes 5-6: The Princess Diaries
I have been unable to find whether or not the 2-in-1 omnibus editions ever finished publication to include Vols 7-8 and 9-10. I do not believe Vol. 11 would be included in this omnibus series even after Vol. 12 comes out, since it’s for a difference audience.
Other books inspired by The Princess Diaries but are not part of the official chronology include:
- Princess Lessons
- Perfect Princess
- Holiday Princess
- Ransom My Heart (a book written “by” Princess Mia)
Um, So What’s a Fanlisting?
A fanlisting is a place where fans (that’s you) gather to show their pride, their devotion, their love of– a character, a pairing, anything!

Why the Royal Library of Genovia?
Genovia is the fictional European principality that protagonist Mia Thermopolis finds out she’s destined to lead one day. Since the series is a book series, I opted to combine the two elements—books and Genovia—to name the site the Royal Library of Genovia. Of course, actual libraries often have a great deal of content beyond books, so the Royal Library of Genovia will also include information on the movies and other related content.
Might You Wish to Expand Upon the Princess’ Presence?
I’m working on making sure all of the fanlistings across the Seventh Star Network have fresh content, so to that end, I’m adding RSS feeds to eligible fanlistings for the latest fanfics from the Archive of Our Own (AO3). Below, a small sampling of the latest fics for The Princess Diaries, which includes the books and the movies!
The list below unfortunately does not include author information or other pertinent data (I’m working on formatting the RSS feed so it can include it in the future, though), like summaries, tags, etc. So please read—and hopefully enjoy—at your own risk!
