Julia struggles between medicine & royalty The Prince & Me: A Cinderella Story Reinvented

Prince Edward, despite his royalty, is by most standards your average twenty-something guy. He enjoys racing cars and beautiful girls, a pastime that earns him unwelcome publicity in his native Denmark. Yet despite having what would appear to be the perfect life, Edward yearns for independence; he has a desire to understand what it is like to be a common person. More importantly, he yearns to find a common girl � not merely someone of royal lineage who he may or may not actually love.

Prince Edward, despite his royalty, is by most standards your average twenty-something guy. He enjoys racing cars and beautiful girls, a pastime that earns him unwelcome publicity in his native Denmark. Yet despite having what would appear to be the perfect life, Edward yearns for independence; he has a desire to understand what it is like to be a common person. More importantly, he yearns to find a common girl � not merely someone of royal lineage who he may or may not actually love.

However he has no idea of how to make his dreams a reality until he stumbles upon the infamous American video series, �Girls Gone Wild� where drunken college girls expose themselves in front of cameras. Na�ve, Edward believes that if he travels to an American college campus, in this case one in Wisconsin he will be able to meet loose girls like those in the video. This leads Edward to beg his parents to send him to America and fend for himself the following year; his mother sternly objects, but his father believes it would be a good experience for the pampered prince and sends him on his way.

Accompanying Edward on his trip is Soren, the prince�s personal secretary. Upon arriving at the university the two accidentally strike Paige with their fancy car. While Paige does not get a glimpse of Edward (who has now adopted the nickname �Eddie�), he does get a clear gaze of her, which would in turn lead to an obsession.

Eddie eventually sees his love again at a local bar and makes a rather obnoxious pass at her. Rather than respond similarly Paige has the prince ejected from the building. Yet Eddie will have another shot when the two are assigned as lab partners in their chemistry class.

With time, Paige begins to enjoy Eddie�s company and they soon become a couple. Unbeknownst to Paige, and indeed the entire campus is that the foreign exchange student is a prince. Naturally Paige discovers Edward�s fib and is less than thrilled, especially after her photo is plastered across international tabloids while in lip lock with him. Even if the small town girl should decide to forgive Eddie, would she be willing to forfeit her career as a doctor and accept the title of princess, and eventually queen?

�The Prince and Me� was nominated for a Teen Choice Award.
