What could be so important? Elizabeth? Prince Arthur? After all these years, we finally meet.
I must say, your pictures don't do you justice.
Either do yours.
You're very kind.
I see you've met Jessica.
Yes, I have.
Well, Elizabeth, I couldn't come to America without visiting my longtime pen pal.
Hey, what's going on? Arthur, this is my boyfriend.
Todd, isn't it? I understand you're the star basketball player at Sweet Valley High.
Elizabeth writes about you all the time.
Prince Arthur Castillo.
From Santa Dora.
Oh, nice to meet you, Arthur.
Prince, I mean.
Your Majesty.
Arthur is fine.
Elizabeth, my schedule only permits a little time.
Are you free for lunch? Absolutely.
Wow, this is really something.
Arthur, do you always rent out the whole restaurant? Well, as a prince, precautions for my safety must be taken.
That explains Mr.
Muscle.
You mean Paulo.
So many times, I thought of the day that I would meet you.
And now I don't even know where to start.
What brings you to Sweet Valley? The king has sent me to meet a business group about investing in Santa Dora.
Then I'm off to Washington to address your Congress.
Whoa.
That doesn't sound like you're gonna have much fun.
My first obligation is to my people and their well-being.
Well, if you have time, I'd love to show you all the places I've written about.
You mean we can show him.
I'd love to.
Your Highness, your schedule is very full.
What's his problem? Paulo doesn't like last-minute changes.
Nobody asked him to come.
But unfortunately, where I go, he goes.
Oh, no, please don't get up.
Hands off the Armani.
Paulo, she's our friend.
Nice to meet you, too.
Your Exaltedness, welcome to Sweet Valley.
My name is Lila Fowler.
Our resident princess.
I just stopped by to invite you to a private party in your honor at my family's estate.
It's very elegant.
You'll feel right at home.
That is kind of you, but unfortunately, I don't think I will have time.
Oh, you must come.
I know all the right people.
I promise, it'll be an evening you never forget.
Come on, Arthur, I'll be your date.
It'll give us a chance to get to know each other better.
Why would he wanna do that? Paulo, we're going to a party.
Well, you and Arthur certainly hit it off.
What did you think? He is sort of cute, but he's awfully stiff.
Jess, you have to understand, his life is totally different from ours.
All his obligations, official duties.
Not to mention that bodyguard.
Tell me he isn't kind of scary.
I know.
Having someone like that hang around all the time, no wonder he's uptight.
Maybe we should find a way to, uh loosen him up.
Winston, Friday night, 8:00.
Dress is formal.
You're actually inviting me to one of your parties? Of course I am.
Why wouldn't I? Usually I have to climb in through the bathroom windows to get into your parties.
That's how you got in.
Well, feel free to come through the front door this time.
Great.
I'll be there.
One more thing stick to Jessica like glue at the party.
Don't let her out of your sight.
Works for me.
Jeez, did he rent it out for the whole week, or what? I never should've told him it was our favorite place.
Shh! Here they come.
Over here.
Like it's not obvious.
Hello, my friends.
What is this? Consider it a token of our friendship.
It's very nice.
Put it back on.
I didn't know it meant so much to you.
Oh, I'll get it.
Hello? Should we order? Better hold off on that.
Get it to go.
Paulo, it's for you.
King Armand.
His Majesty? My father.
Your Majesty, yes, sir.
Now.
What is going on? Shh! OK, Prince Arthur and Jessica.
Todd and I are gonna cruise.
Bye! Like a hawk, sir.
Yes.
In fact, I'm looking at him right now.
You know what we do to you if you fail.
OK, gotta go.
Ciao.
Alone at last.
Ciao? Who says ciao? I was improvising.
Oh.
Hi, Paulo.
This is incredible.
I'd love to see the look on Paulo's face.
It's about time you have a life, even if it is for only one afternoon.
Come on.
Say, isn't that the prince of Santa Dora? Let's get his autograph.
They went down here.
I don't see them anywhere.
Where are they? Where'd they go? They couldn't just disappear.
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh Oh-oh-oh Come here.
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh I wasn't lookin' for love When I saw your face And now I'm prayin' for you To come my way 'Cause when you stared into my eyes Somethin' went right through me And everything you said seemed somehow You already knew me Then I knew my prince had come To stay Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh Aah! Then I knew my prince had come Prince had come My prince had come To stay Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh My prince had come to stay I want you to have this.

It's a small piece of the wall that once surrounded our island.
I've had it since I was a boy.
I'll never take it off.
This has been the best day of my life, Jessica.
You've given me something I've never experienced before a day of freedom.
I think I'm falling in love with you.
I'd like to help you, Paulo, but I don't know where they went.
Don't worry.
Arthur's in good hands.
Did I just say that? This is so like Jessica.
If she wasn't my best friend, I'd hate her guts.
Lila! For all we know, they're in Mexico getting married.
Impossible.
You don't know Jessica.
But I know the prince.

Yes, milady.
Oh, and, Lila What milady? We need to talk.
It's about Arthur.
Isn't he the best? Oh, Liz, we had such a great time.
It's like a fairy tale.
Jess, it's not a fairy tale.
It may not have a happy ending.
I know you think it's happening all too fast, but it's not.
It's like we're meant to be together.
He loves me, and I love him.
Nothing will ever change that.

It would break her heart.
I'll tell her after the party.

A princess? I've gotta go and tell everyone.
No, Patty, wait! Jess, aren't you jumping the gun? Jessica's marrying the prince? What's he got that I don't? A kingdom.
Great party, Lila, but I have to go.
It's my parents' anniversary, and I'm meeting them at the club.
Anniversaries happen every year.

Attention, everyone.
I am so thrilled to be the one to do this.
It is my deepest pleasure to announce a wedding engagement this evening.
No.
Our prince, Arthur Castillo of Santa Dora, is going to be marrying the very beautiful and elegant Lady Isabelle Randavi.
Arthur, what is she talking about? Lady Randavi is my fianceé.
How could you? Jessica, wait.
Jessica, let me explain.
Explain what? That you've been lying to me, that you've been leading me on and making a fool out of me in front of all my friends? It's not like that.
No? Then tell me you're not engaged.
It's true, but it's an arranged marriage, a very old custom in my country.
I've only met Lady Randavi three times.
I don't wanna hear any more.
Please, listen to me.
I don't want to go through with it now that I've met you.
Why didn't you tell me? Because I didn't think you'd understand.
Our worlds are very different.
I'm not free like you.
But you're a prince.
I belong to the people, Jessica.
Do the people tell you who to love? No, not anymore.
I'm going to talk to my father, tell him how I feel, but I need time.
Will you give me that? Yes.
Let's go somewhere private.
There's not a chance I could fool him again.
Come back inside.
I can't go back in there.
Then meet me at the pier, tomorrow night, seven.
You got a hole in my heart Ooh, it's true As I surrender to that look in your eyes The search is over now that I realize You are my answer to love Took me so long to see You were there for me I should've known from the start Jess! How could I have believed him? I'm so stupid.
It's from Arthur.
It came right after you left.
"Jessica, "I am truly sorry I cannot be with you tonight.
"An emergency has called me away earlier than planned.
"Forgive me.
You have every reason to be upset, "but know that you have made me see there's much more to life "than royal obligations.
"For that, I thank you.
"I can't say what the future holds, "but remember, I will always love you.
"Yours forever Arthur.
" There's something else in here.
He really is a prince, isn't he? Yeah.
After dating royalty, how will I ever go back to common men? Oh, I'm sure you'll find a way.
