Starring:

Rose McIver

Ben Lamb

Alice Krige

Plot:

A year after helping Richard get to the throne, Amber is about to become his wife. But is she really made to be queen?

Review:

Holy shit I was excited to see this was coming out. I love when they take Christmas movies and continue on with the story after the normal happily ever after.

Amber, Rose McIver, is still blogging away while her prince, now king, Richard, Ben Lamb, rules his country. Young and ambitious nothing seems to be going as planned for the couple. This is the first test of their relationship and things don’t go as planned, both have their failings, but hopefully they’ve learned some lessons for the future.

Lots of returning characters, tons of pairings off, and a dorky Christmas tree. The romance was a little bit lacking this time around, but it was understandable considering the story that did play out. Still, it was missed and I hope any future movies play more into the romance of the couple and less into the supporting characters. Give them their own movies!

The Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding was a faithful sequel. It hit all the expected notes and was full of holiday cheer.

My Christmas wish is that this because a yearly series. Next year can be Royal Honeymoon, then Royal Heir, Royal Spare, etc.… If everyone was willing to do it I see no downside!

5/5

Director:

Alex Zamm

Starring:

Rose McIver

Ben Lamb

Alice Krige

Plot:

When a reporter goes undercover as a tutor to get the inside scoop on a playboy prince, she gets tangled in some royal intrigue and ends up finding love – but will she be able to keep up her lie?

Review:

I was not expecting to see a Netflix Original Movie like this one, though, I should have been. Cheap Christmas movies are perfect for Netflix, they should make more because this one seemed like it had a slightly larger budget than a Hallmark movie and Rose McIver was a much better actress than we normally get. However, it still had all the things I love about cheesy Christmas movies.

Sweet romance, check.

Snow and Christmas decorations, check.

Misunderstandings that lead to an almost horrible ending, check.

A sweet child and an American woman that saves Christmas and an entire countries political future, um, check.

Really enjoyed this movie, though, I don’t think it’s going to become a yearly tradition. I might end up watching it again though. If you’re a fan of Hallmark Christmas movies then you’ll love this one.

3.5/5
