p> Part of Mia’s problem with accepting the crown is her belief that she can never really be a princess. In the film A Little Princess, attitude, not lineage, is shown to be what determines a real princess. For other Disney animated tales of princesses, try Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs or Pocahontas. Ever After is another live action princess story.
