With the world in chaos around us, it’s no wonder so many people are bahumbugging all around me. With politics making my stomach queasy, gas and food prices on the rise, and the corner of my living room still bare without a Christmas tree, I needed something to spark my holiday spirit, and I found it.
Check out this trailer for A Christmas Prince
Now can you see why I’m in love with this movie? I was hooked right from the start as it kinda has a Princess Diaries, mixed with The Prince and Me, and First Daughter vibe to it.
A Christmas Prince is the story of Amber (Rose McIver) who is a go-getting but shy, introverted New York copy-editor waiting for her big break to become a reporter, and she gets it with her first assignment. She’s being sent to Aldovia- which is one of the most beautiful (fake) holiday Santa village towns I’ve ever seen. Amber is all set to grab her story on playboy Prince Richard (Ben Lamb) as he’s been going rogue and avoiding his responsibilities of becoming the next king. But when she’s accidentally mistaken for an American tutor the fun begins. Alongside the prince’s young sister (Honor Kneafsey) who knows who Amber really is, they set out to discover the true story behind how the prince really feels but what is undercovered are secrets that could either make Amber’s career or cost her the love of her life.
I loved loved loved this movie in all it’s cheesy dialogue, forced Christmas fun with the queen even wanting to go on a toboggan ride, and two evil plotters wanting to steal the prince’s throne. Not to mention Amber’s role as she tries to hide her identity while being herself, breaking priceless vases and muddling her way through the palace where she fits in more than she realizes.
With a Hallmark quality, this movie is tons of fun. It has a good story to it. Fuzzy and heartwarming moments between Amber and the young princess struggling with the death of her father. And something we can all relate to with Amber being an ordinary person who dreams of doing what she loves.
A Prince for Christmas is true holiday joy!
The best part is that it’s streaming on Netflix right now so you can watch it all season long, again and again, and if you are like me–again!
