A herald and his entourage with a proclamation sent from King Harold and Queen Lillian arrives at Shrek\'s and Fiona\'s house. With fanfare blast, he reads from a scroll that invites Shrek and their daughter to a royal ball in Far Far Away.
Shrek (Mike Myers) and Fiona (Cameron Diaz) return from their honeymoon. A letter from Fiona\'s parents, the King (John Cleese) and the Queen (Julie Andrews) invites them to dinner. A problem surfaces in that the King and Queen haven\'t a clue that their daughter is now an ogre. Also, Fairy God Mother discovers Fiona and Shrek are married and reminds the king about an old deal they had that Fiona should marry Prince Charming (the FGM\'s son). The king then hires Puss-in-Boots (Antonio Banderas), a sword fighting cat and ogre slayer, to kill Shrek.
