Tiaras at the ready - Anne Hathaway says a third instalment in the Princess Diaries film series is in the works. 

In an appearance on Watch What Happens Live, Hathaway was asked if The Princess Diaries 3 would go ahead since the author of the book hinted of another screenplay. 

"There is a script for the third movie, there is a script," Hathaway announced.  

After a 15-year absence, Hathaway appeared pleased to confirm she may be returning to the big screen as Amelia Mignonette Grimaldi Thermopolis Renaldo, AKA Princess Mia. 

The 36-year-old The Devil Wears Prada actress said Queen Clarisse Renaldo, played by Dame Julie Andrews, has also expressed interest in the project going ahead. 

"I want to do it. Julie wants to do it. Debra Martin Chase, our producer, wants to do it. We all really want it to happen." 

She added that the team has been reluctant to pursue another movie unless "it's perfect" because they love it just as much as fans do.  

"It's as important to us as it is to you, and we don't want to deliver anything until it's ready, but we're working on it."

In a previous interview with BuzzFeed News, the Queen of Genovia said: "I would very willingly and happily do it."

The Princess Diaries kick-started Hathaway's career in 2001 when the Disney movie captured the hearts of audiences around the world. 

A second movie was released in 2004, depicting Princess Mia's new life in Genovia and finding her Prince Charming.
