When you think of the Grandma from the Princess Diaries, is this who comes to mind?
How sweet. Add a cigarette, sidecar, and tattooed eyeliner, and then you have the REAL Grandmère. I’m biased because I grew up with the books before seeing the movie, but books Grandmère is a QWEEN (see what I did there?). She doesn’t take anyone’s shit, calls people on their crap, and kicks ass as the Dowager Princess of Genovia. Grandmère is my favorite part of the books because she always had a vicious one liner hidden up her sleeve. I’ll always hold a special place in my heart for Clarisse Grimaldi.
