It’s that time of year for sappy love, Christmas movies.  You know… the ones we all call “Hallmark movies.” Well if you’re looking for a new one, you’re in luck because I have it right here.  “A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding”, starring Rose McIver as Amber and Ben Lamb as King Richard is a Netflix original released this past week!  The popularity of this movie is skyrocketing, and I can see why. The plot behind the movie is that Amber and King Richard have gotten engaged and now, a year later, are planning the wedding, buutttt it isn’t quite what Queen-To-Be Amber had in mind for her own wedding.  Through the movie we see the struggles between Amber and the things that come along with a royal wedding, missing her mom, and maybe even a little bit of struggle in the royal relationship too!


This is a great movie and I couldn’t stop watching it!  Honestly it just popped up on my “Watch Next” section of Netflix, and I am so glad I clicked on it.  Honestly, I didn’t even know there was a first movie to the series. But, this one was so good that I had to go watch the first!  (Also go watch that one. It was really good too. It’s about how they became a relationship).

While it is clique in parts, it truly is a great movie.  It encompasses everything you would hope for in a Christmas movie: love, humor, mystery, and even a little bit of tension.  I would give this movie 4.5/5 stars. Rose McIver and Ben Lamb are fasniating in the film, and honestly made me believe that they were actually together. Wonderful acting. Beautiful set and costume design.  And a great storyline.


This is a must watch Christmas movie before the holiday arrives!  Who knows maybe you will find your Christmas price soon after watching it.
