We know, we know. You just remembered there's going to be a third installment of "The Princess Diaries."

So, will the whole gang be back or did anyone royally retire?

You can count on Héctor Elizondo to be there. He plays the royal security guard named Joe — never Joey.

Elizondo told The Huffington Post, "Joe has to come back no matter what. ... He's part of the family and we're looking forward to it."

We're imperially excited. Joe secretly drives the humor of the whole franchise.

When we last saw Joe, he and the queen finally got married.

We're looking forward to more of that "classic Joe" wisdom. But his wisecracks are always so much better.
