After a chance encounter with Princess Mira of the small country of Vespania, Ran finds herself at the center of a royal conspiracy. After exchanging places with the young princess – who is set to become the next queen following the death of her mother and elder brother during a hunting accident – Ran is drugged and whisked off to Vespania. Impressed by Conan’s quick thinking as he manages to sneak aboard their plane, Keith – the head of Mira’s security staff – decides to recruit the young detective to help him. Conan must now try to uncover the plot that threatens Princess Mira’s life and has been paired up with Jigen, who has covertly infiltrated the royal palace to find out information about Lupin’s latest target: the Queen’s Crown. Will Conan be able to find the proof he needs to protect both Mira and Ran and will Lupin be able to get his hands on the loot with both Zenigata and the world’s greatest detective under the same roof?
