His Royal Highness, Prince Paul, has never known the real joys of childhood, and is ignored by his father, the King. He is hated by his uncle, the Duke, for Paul stands between him and the throne, but his aunt, the Princess, is kind to him. One day when the Prince is riding with the Princess, they stop near the stand of a little flower girl, to have the shoe of one of the horses fixed. The Princess sees Rose Marie, the flower girl, and is startled by the resemblance of the little girl to Prince Paul. Paul also sees Rose Marie and catches the flower she throws to him. Some days later through the machinations of the Duke, Prince Paul is kidnapped and brought to a gypsy camp. Upon discovering the Prince's disappearance the King and the whole court are disturbed. News of the disappearance of Prince Paul reach the populace, and they storm the gates of the palace, demanding that the Prince be found. The Princess remembers the flower girl and tells the King of her. Men are sent to bring Rose Marie. She is dressed in Paul's clothes and taken before the people, who are now satisfied. The King soon comes to care for her as does the Princess, but the Duke is furious. The King's messenger, returning from a distant city, passes by the gypsies' camp and see Prince Paul, who is happy in his new environment. The messenger rides to the palace to inform the King of his discovery and men are sent for Paul, who pleads in vain with them to leave him with the gypsies. Rose Marie now feels that she is no longer needed and steals from the palace. The Duke sees that he has lost his chance to become King. Paul sits on the throne, a look of sorrow and longing in his eyes, while Rose Marie returns to her flowers.

Polly Vance is at a loss as to where to get the next day's food. The children scream, "Polly, put the kettle on," but she finds only a few tea leaves. The kids are disappointed when they find no jam. Polly, though only eighteen, has been mothering these children a long time. Polly enters her father's workroom, where he is poring over the plans for the invention which he is confident will bring them riches. He becomes irritated when Polly reminds him of their poverty, and she leaves the room. Polly obtains a position with Johanna Webb, a spinster. Chester Creigg, Miss Webb's nephew, has completed his preparations for leaving home. He is returning to college, this being his finishing year. Chester is impressed with Polly's good looks and there seems to be a mutual attraction. After some weeks Polly is overjoyed to learn that Chester is coming home. Chester has been awarded a prize at college for writing the best play. In the meantime Vance, Polly's father, has completed his invention. He takes the model to a well-known manufacturer, only to be told that the invention is already on the market. Chester has a tilt with his aunt because he will not submit to her arrangement for him to enter a bank, as he has chosen play-writing for his profession, and she disinherits him. Polly comes in with some wool and the old lady finds it is not the right color. Chester listens as the spinster scolds Polly. Polly is told to leave, and they go off together. Chester cannot convince Polly that it is the proper thing for her to allow him to help her until she gets another job. As he walks aimlessly on he is attracted by an excited crowd. He finds a man has fallen and been injured. He takes him home and has the doctor called. Polly comes home and finds Chester at her father's bedside. She is overcome with emotion at his goodness. Later Chester prevails on Polly to allow him to send her to the hospital for training as a nurse. While she is there Chester takes care of the family, though he is hard up, not having sold any of his plays. On a visit to Polly's house he finds a fire started accidentally by one of the children. He is overcome by an explosion of the father's chemicals and is taken to the hospital, after risking his life in rescuing the children. One of the neighbors comes to the hospital and tells Polly she will care for the children if Polly will nurse Chester. Chester is made blind by the fire. Polly feels it is incumbent upon her to help him, so she secretly goes to the old aunt and tells her of her nephew's plight. She says that Chester has sworn not to touch a cent of hers. They hit upon the plan to tell Chester his aunt has suddenly died, leaving all her wealth to him. In this way he is brought to her old home with Polly as his nurse. Polly in the meantime has sent his finished play to a play-broker. A friend of Chester's, Pendleton, a famous oculist, comes rushing in his old boyish fashion and brings the newspaper speaking of the great new play, "Polly Put the Kettle On," and of the mystery surrounding the identity of the author. Of course, it is Chester's play, and he bemoans the fate that makes it impossible for him to see his first play. Pendleton suggests an operation. Polly takes care of the patient. Her sweet face is the first thing that greets Chester's restored vision. He is too overcome for words. But he finds the speech when he sees his aunt Johanna. Her spirit has been refined in the fires of adversity, and there is a happy reunion.
