Many people, especially young girls, love the stories about princesses – with their beautiful gowns, grandiose life and royal privileges. One of these stories is the story of Mia in the movie “Princess Diaries” wherein this clumsy and shy teen discovered that she is the princess of a small European state called Genovia!

But, what if there’s a real-life Mia? What will be your reaction if after being raised by your single mother as an ordinary girl; you later find out that you are actually a princess? 

This is exactly what happened to a Pinay whose story can be compared to the plot of “Princess Diaries.” At first, she thought that her mom just made the story up to make her feel that she’s a princess and so she will stop asking about her dad. But, she learned that she is actually a princess and this story of her mother was actually true!

Her story got viral when it was posted on the Facebook page of “Humans of New York” as part of their “#quarantinestories.” This half-Pinay, half-Malaysian princess shared her story which truly surprised the online community. 

She recalls that it was a day in kindergarten when she learned that her dad was a king. Because of their school activity where they supposed to bring their fathers to school but her mother told her that it was not possible.

According to her mom, “He’s too busy. He lives in Malaysia. And he’s a king.”

She felt sad when her dad would not make it to their kindergarten event, but learning that he is a king – it made her happy. If her father is a king, then she is a princess!

From the Philippines, they migrated to United States. She didn’t feel like she’s a princess because they were living in a rented apartment – and that’s not how a princess supposed to live (because ideally, princesses live in a castle or a magical kingdom, right?). When she asked her mom, her mother told her that she worked once as a nurse in Malaysia, and then she met the king in a party. That’s all she learned from her mom because she refused to tell the whole story to her daughter.

But then, she just thought that her mom made the story up.

“Then one night, when I was fourteen years old, the phone rang. There was a strange voice on the line. I’d never heard the accent before. It said: ‘I represent His Royal Highness, and we’ve received your letters.’ I quickly handed the phone to my mom and she spoke to the man for several minutes.

“When she finally hung up, she told me: ‘Your dad wants to meet you now.’ I took a week off school. We flew to London and stayed at the InterContinental hotel.

“We were greeted in the lobby by a lawyer, who gave us a wad of cash to go shopping, and told us that ‘His Royal Highness’ would be available for lunch the next day.”

Until she finally met her dad! But it was not an exciting reunion the she envisioned to happen. When they finally meet her father, it was only for one hour and he came with an entourage. But luckily, they were able to talk to her dad, with the King telling her that she looks like her older sister. 

Also, during this meeting, her mother told the King about her demands to obtain financial support. However, her father didn’t agree to her second request of paternity in writing. Yet aside from the child support and meeting her father two times more, also for just one hour, she was never “fully acknowledged” in the family.

The only evidence and remembrance that this unnamed Filipina lady got is a photo with her father, which was requested by her mother taken during their first lunch together at London.

But her dad is truly a king – he is the Sultan of Pahang, the king and the hereditary constitutional head of Pahang, Malaysia. Formally known as His Royal Highness Sultan Haji Ahmad Shah Al-Musta’in Billah ibni Almarhum Sultan Abu Bakar Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mu’azzam Shah, the king had a wife. The first one is his official and royal consort, Tengku Ampuan Afzan binti Tengku Panglima Perang Muhammad. In her passing, he had a second wife, Kalsom binti Abdullah.

A Muslim, the king could have taken the half-Pinay half-Malaysian princess’ mom, but for some reason he didn’t marry her. But, even if she wasn’t formally acknowledged into the family, her life appears to have turned out well. Because of this, many netizens praised her mother.

According to one netizen, “Your mum sounds like an amazing person. You’re the daughter of a queen as well as a king.” “You will always be a princess in your own right! And your mother seemed to make a wise choice to not chase your father more than she did. She picked her battles wisely,” another wrote.
