Prince Po is the wealthy son of the Emperor. They keep a constant eye on him; he has many guardians, nannies, servants, and teachers. His fame and wealth did not go to his ego; he remains a grounded, good hearted young man. Sometimes his large palace is like a prison, and he just wishes he could run the streets of humble Panda town, play his lute at the clubs with the local musical group.
His love for music helps him to discover the humble beauty and grace of KG, as she plays her melodic flute one summer night. There is such a thing as love at first sight, and when KG meets Prince Po, he becomes the object of her love and affection.
