Welcome To Ask Meg about Princess Diaries Characters!

Here you can Ask Meg about our favourite characters from Princess Diaries!

PLEASE NOTE: If you are refering to a character situation in a particular book, please post it in the thread designated for the book



:spinstar: PLEASE read the FAQ before you ask a question in the forum. This will save time and space.

:spinstar: PLEASE use the SEARCH BUTTON and the Princess Diaries forums FIRST.

:spinstar: PLEASE do not chat in this thread! This is for asking questions, and Meg will answer. If you would like to chat about the book, go to the book forum HERE

:spinstar: PLEASE be respectful if you answer a question in this forum!

:spinstar: And as always, PLEASE, adhere to the Meg Cabot Message Boards rules!




FREQUNETLY ASK QUESTIONS! (Psst! Read this before posting!):

:spinstar: Who inspired Grandmere?
Actually she IS based on someone I knew, a lady my mom was friends with! Not my grandmother--well, maybe one of my grandmothers, but not the one who is still alive! I have to be careful what I say here....for obvious reasons! I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings. Grandmere isn't very likable, although I do like her.

:spinstar: Is Mia based off of anyone you knew?
Mia's character is influenced at times by Meg's past.

:spinstar: When are the character's birthdays?
Michael Moscovitz
January 5

Grandmere
March 4

Mia Thermopolis
May 1

Rocky Thermopolis-Gianini
May 10

Kenny Showalter
July 29

Lily Moscovitz
July 30

Tina Hakim Baba
October 7

Fat Louie
November 4



Thanks for your attention!

Enjoy!

I actually noticed that the other day, too! However, when you clicked "Read More" on that particular caption on the homepage, the link took you to Meg's most recent diary entry, but that entry did not match the caption being shown on the homepage. I figured it out, and the caption that was appearing on the homepage was for an older Diary post (http://www.megcabot.com/diary/?p=701) and was not related to Meg's most recent Diary entry, as it usually is.

It must have just been a technical error (possibly while Meg was updating her blog?), as now the homepage shows a caption relating to the most recent (September 8) blog entry.

Hope that helps!

One Meg's main website, go to the heading that reads "Cool Stuff" under that heading should be listed Princess Mia's Blog...You'll just have to check it once a week or once every few weeks to see if it's updated. Princess Mia (Meg) is pretty busy right now, so just pop in every few weeks to see if she has updated.

Dear Meg,

I can't believe that you visit Curitiba (Brasil) and I wasn't there to ask you in person.

So I came here, because I really need to know!!!

Is it Michael real?!

If he is...is he with someone, happy now?

Thanks, and congratulation!! :)

I'm pretty sure they stay friends.. isn't it really implied ? And I believe she mentions her in her new blog but don't hold me to that.

Meg I know Mia mentions Sailor Moon a lot in the fifth book. Did part of the character from Micheal come from Tuxedo Mask at all?

Oh and I was also wondering in the creator of Sailor Moon, Naoko Takechui, influenced your writing at all.

Okay, I love Anne Hathaway and I think she does a fantastic Mia (both in the audiobooks and the films) BUT her physical description doesn't match with the Mia's in the books. So I was just curious, is there any actress (or model or singer) that comes close to how you picture her in your head? Also, is there anyone you thought of specifically for Michael?

Meg says she enjoys the movies for what they are. When you sell your rights as an author, it's kinda unwise to have a cast already in your head because things can be turned topsy turvy. Although, I really can't answer for Meg on this issue, other than she's said she loves Anne Hathaway.

No. To be honest, I just thought Mia would like Sailor Moon, but I've never really watched a whole episode of the show. Sometimes writers see things and think, "Oh, my character would like that!" Do you know what I mean? Just like Mia is a vegetarian, but I eat cheeseburgers almost every day. But I WISH I were more like my characters!

Dear Meg,
Does Mia have something like you when you were her age???Well, she likes cats and you have a cat.
Carroll :heartbeat:

Mia and I have very many similarities, but we are not totally alike. I am not a princess or a vegetarian, and I am not as nice as Mia is, although I would like to be (I would also like to be a princess and a vegetarian, too). Mia is taller than I am, too. But both our mothers married our teachers (fortunately mine did not have a baby with mine), and I flunked Algebra, twice, and I also dated a college boy when I was in high school, who left to go to Asia. We broke up, and later got back together. But he wasn't Jewish, he was Arab-American. We're still good friends, and he introduced me to my husband, who is really the one Michael is based on in the books. I loved theater and drawing in high school, not writing, when I was Mia's age, and I wanted to be an actress or an illustrator when I grew up, but fortunately those careers did not work out. I had friends who were all just like Mia's friends, and I am still friends with them now! Fat Louie is based on one of my friend's cats, Fat Henry, and my other friend's dog, Molly, who eats socks. That is where the term, "You look like you just ate a sock," came from.

Thanks for asking, Carroll!

Love, Meg

Yes, she wrote some tips for Kate Middleton! Unfortunately, a national newspaper got hold of them, so Mia has to wait for the paper to publish them first. Then, once that's done, she can post them. Being a princess is hard.

My friends and I are insanely curious- who do Ling Su and Perin end up with? You know, romantically? We've talked about the books at lunch since the seventh grade, and everyone is really unsure.

Thanks!

I'm not Meg, but this question has been brought up before. Ling Su and Perin are together as a couple by the end of the series.

I think you should dress however you feel Mia would dress. She's a character with whom YOU feel a personal closeness, so whatever YOU think she would wear, that's good enough for me, especially if you have a good argument for why she'd be wearing that. Keep in mind, on any giving day, Mia could pretty much be wearing just about anything, and have a strong argument for why. So you can't really go wrong. Thought I honestly can't see her in a skirt and heels.

LARGE PD FAN!

I watched the movies first, then almost 6 years later, I read the first book. I was like well maybe its good. Not realising that you had 10 books. Which got me hooked ever since!

Question one:

Why did you make it that Boris dated Tina? Sorry, I always found it a weird pairing!

Question Two:
I'm not really sure, but why is Kenny a bad ass? And Lilly pierced up? Again, I think of them as innocent dorks-excuse that inapporriate word.

Question Three:
Mostly EVERYON has asked this lovely question, and I will be too. Will you ever make book 11? About Michael and Mia in College? Well Mia in college? Because I love her and it's hard to believe I read 10 books in like...hmm...two and a half weeks?

Question Four:
If you were to write book 11, what would it be about? I know a lot of people have ideas, I'm curious in your opinion!

Alex~ :m:

hproker- Freshman year through senior year here is like your Year 10-13. Does that make sense?

Alex- Meg may write more books but it'll be a while before that happens if it does. She has many other ideas to get out first.

Hi Meg,
I think one of the reasons I loved PD so much was because of Mia's obsession with Buffy the Vampire Slayer. (I didn't know there were action figures til your books! I'm saving up for one. Fiesta Giles, of course!!!! And Faith, always loved her.)
I'm obsessed with BTVS, also.
Are you a fan, yourself?

Meg,
I know a couple other fans on here have sort of addressed this but I really wanted a confirmation of this. It seemed implied that Ling Su and Perrin were romantically involved in the later books, is this true? I was worried that I was wanting to think that because I was getting into that later part of the series while I was with my first girlfriend and it was what inspired me to hunt down books with more obvious teenage lesbian couples. Through this whole hunt I was inspired to come out and so the confirmation of a relationship between Ling Su and Perrin would mean a great deal to me as the implications of one were what began the ordeal. If there was a relationship between them I'm also wondering what inspired you to put them together and if you would ever consider writing a story about them, even just a short one? Thank you for taking your time to read this if you do I love all of your books I've read and when school starts I hope to read even more since our library has a large collection of your work. I'm really such a huge fan so thanks again.

I can't answer all the questions, but yes, Perin and Ling Su are definitely a couple. I can't remember where, but Meg has confirmed this in the past.

Also, a lesbian book that I enjoyed was Sister Mischief by Laura Goode that was released last year. Also, I've heard wonderful things about The Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily M. Danforth.
