Harry and Meghan, step aside, the world has a much more important Royal Wedding to celebrate this year.
After Netflix released A Christmas Prince last winter, we have fallen head over heels in love with Amber (Rose McIver, iZombie), an ambitious journalist and Richard (Ben Lamb, Divergent), the Prince of Aldovia and the object of her investigation. Amber cons her way into the palace by pretending to be Richard’s sister’s tutor. After many ups and downs, which include scheming ex-girlfriends and a paternity scandal, Amber and Richard share a passionate kiss and declare their undying love for each other. Come what may.
The movie has won over audiences all over the world in no time with three-dimensional characters, surprising twists and turns, and an ending so unexpected it brought tears to our rom-com-convention-loving eyes.
In all seriousness, A Christmas Prince was everything we needed for Christmas last year: a sure-fire happy end, for comfort. But what happens after the happily ever after?
Amber has agreed to marry the Prince, but that comes with a whole lot of responsibilities. Netflix has released a first trailer for the upcoming sequel A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding, and preparations for the big day are underway.
With an event this big come expectations that Amber may not be ready for quite yet. Assisted by a sassy gay wedding planner (who else, really?) and a pushy mother-in-law (who else, really?), Amber finds herself questioning not only her new family’s choice in wedding attire, but also whether she truly fits into their world. Her commitment is tested when the Queen asks her to give up her writing and to rework her public image.
Will Amber and Richard’s love survive? Either way, we cannot wait to find out. Royal Wedding is sure to be filled with cheesy lines, rom com tropes left and right, and just the perfect amount of ridiculousness that made A Christmas Prince so much fun to watch.
McIver and Lamb reprise their roles as the happy couple in the film directed by John Schultz and a screenplay by Nate Atkins and Karen Schaler.
A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding will be released on Netflix November 30, 2018.
