With its impressive story, cast, locations, costumes, and musical score, the royal teleserye topbilled by Kathryn Bernardo, Daniel Padilla, Enrique Gil, Khalil Ramos, Albert Martinez, and Gretchen Barretto, quickly became a hit not only among the young viewers but also among families. Loyal fans were hooked with the funny adventures and lesson-filled misadventures of a simple young girl named Mikay (Kathryn), the long lost Princess Areeyah of the Kingdom of Yangdon.
From its consistent high national TV ratings, “Princess and I” truly conquered the nation as proven by its top trending topics on Twitter almost every night; jampacked mall tours; best-selling official soundtrack and merchandise; numerous magazine covers; and its three major Royal Fairs that filled Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City, Ynares Center in Antipolo City, and Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.
With the show’s phenomenal success, Gretchen and Albert became royal household names for their roles as Ashi Behati and King Anand, respectively; Daniel, Khalil and Enrique were crowned as their generation’s young superstars; and Kathryn was hailed as the country’s newest teleserye princess and the ‘teen queen’ of primetime TV.
Now that the royal ending of Princess Areeyah/Mikay’s fairytale draws near, one question keeps everyone at the edge of their seats—Who is “I” in “Princess and I?” Will it be Mikay’s prince charming Jao (Enrique) or her knight in shining armor si Gino (Daniel)?
