A Princess for Christmas (2011)
At the invitation of an estranged relative, a young woman travels with her niece and nephew to a castle in Europe for Christmas, where she unwittingly falls for a dashing Prince.
Christmas and royalty and romance, a combination I’m only now realizing I enjoy.
Snow and pretty horses, check.
Snobby, grasping blond, check.
Cheesy dialogue, longing glances, and a complete castle transformation for Christmas, check.
Last, but not least, a misunderstanding that almost ruins it all, check.
I love the predictable nature of these movies. I don’t even mind the fact that the actress occasionally lost her American accent. Or that the teenage boy had a really creepy/pervy look several times throughout the movie. It was exactly what I was looking for and I hope I’m able to find more.
Oddly enough, or maybe not, it’s really very similar to A Christmas Prince which I watched earlier. Honestly, it might end up making my yearly rotation, I don’t know why I liked it just a little bit more than A Christmas Prince, even though Rose McIver was really great in that version.
