People all around the world are facing quarantine due to COVID-19 — even those in Genovia.

Meg Cabot, the author of the Princess Diaries series, is once again writing entries from Princess Mia Thermopolis’ diary to keep people entertained as they practice social distancing due to the coronavirus. “Mia” writes about her experiences of ruling a European principality during the pandemic and trying to keep her grandmother inside.

“If only I hadn’t started drinking wine as soon as I got home and saw the news,” she says in the first entry from March 24 — and honestly, same. So far there are three entries, and each says to come back the next day for more. You can read them all on Cabot’s blog.

Fans of the princess can also find the films based on the book on Disney+ — just in case you want to see Anne Hathaway break a brush and fall in a fountain.

As a kid, Nicole either wanted to be a professional toy player-wither or a writer. Somehow, as social media editor for The Toy Insider, The Toy Book, and The Pop Insider, she’s found a career as both. She's grateful to work somewhere that she can fully embrace both her love of teddy bears and her admiration for the Oxford comma. When she's not playing with toys at work, she's playing with her baby girl at home.
