When Nicholas is throwing pebbles at Mia's window, he is whistling the famous "Flower Duet" from Delibes's opera "Lakme". See more »
In the scenes where Mia is reviewing the troops, there is a shot where Lily and Nicholas introduce themselves across Andrew ("Best friend of the queen-to-be. I don't like you.") In a later, related scene, Nicholas has followed Mia to the tack room. His necktie changes between the two shots. The director says (in the special features part of the DVD) that this was actually a shot taken from another scene: the pear tree scene (which is in the deleted scenes), and put into this scene instead.

To be a princess, you have to believe that you are a princess. You've got to walk the way you think a princess would walk. So, you gotta think tall you gotta smile and wave, and just have fun.

How refreshing to attend a non-animated, G-rated movie and enjoy it! As a 41-year-old woman attending with an 82-year-old friend, I expected a light, pretty, romantic fairy tale, and that's exactly what I got. Never saw the first movie, but the "catch-up" work at the beginning made that a non-issue.
Surely, no one would go to this movie expecting to find the meaning of life portrayed on the screen. Come on, folks, this is a Disney princess flick with Julie Andrews and a G-rating; is anybody expecting deep philosophy?
Chick flick? Of course! Especially appealing to young (under 18) chicks? Definitely! Enjoyable to other adult women and men who just want a happy trip to fantasy land with no worries about sex, blood, or blue language? Absolutely!
Take this film at face value and you'll enjoy it. If you can't do that, don't bother seeing it. There are plenty of other "profound" movies out there to inspire, teach, or depress you! Go for a good time and you'll have it.
