At the end of April 2017, we finally learned the name of Rose’s newest movie; ‘A Christmas Prince‘ as well as its release date which will be around the festive period. We also learnt that Joel McVeagh will play her best friend.
‘A Christmas Prince‘ is a Christmas movie as we love them. We discover Amber (played by Rose McIver), a young woman new to journalism, who is offered the reportage of her life because no one else is available to cover it. She flew to the city ‘Aldovia’ to find the next buzz about Prince Richard who is currently in the spotlight of the gossip press. After bad news for the work she has to do, Amber decides to shake her destiny and enter in the life of Prince Richard by jumping on the opportunity given to her in order to carry out her mission. One thing led to another, and despite the obstacles she encounters in her walk, Amber realizes that Prince Richard is not at all the one described in the press. We discover an endearing young man, very close to his family, who has many passions; and Amber will quickly like him the way she would not have imagined at first.
Throughout the film, we are dealing with a beautiful story around Christmas, with endearing characters and very good actors. We will not forget to talk about landscapes! The film was shot in Bucharest (Romania), in beautiful woodland landscapes filled with snow and that’s also all we love. Without revealing too much, ‘A Christmas Prince‘ is a movie about which we could say “we expected it“. But finally, like all Christmas movies, that’s what we like and that’s what we like. If you like Christmas spirit, Christmas movies, productions signed Netflix, you will not be disappointed!
