Trailer: A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding finally arrives this November
James R | On 17, Nov 2018
“It’s been 349 days since I said yes…” writes journalist Amber on her blog, as she prepares for the most anticipated royal wedding of the year. Yes, Netflix’s A Christmas Prince is coming back, and Amber Rose and Prince Richard of Aldovia are officially tying the knot.
The seasonal rom-com sequel was announced earlier this year, after Netflix’s first festive original movie became a surprising hit.
“So cheerfully formulaic that resistance is futile,” we wrote in our review of the movie, which stars Rose McIver as Amber, Ben Lamb as the dashing prince, and Alice Krige as his disapproving mother.
The film picks up a year after Amber helped Richard secure the crown, with the two set to tie the knot in a royal Christmas wedding – but their plans are jeopardised when Amber finds herself second-guessing whether or not she’s cut out to be queen, and Richard is faced with a political crisis that threatens to tarnish not only the holiday season, but the future of the kingdom.
Will they successfully get hitched without a hitch? Find out on Friday 30th November, when A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding arrives on Netflix. Here’s the official trailer:
A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding is available on Netflix UK, as part of an £9.99 monthly subscription.
Netflix’s A Christmas Prince will return for a Royal Wedding
19th May 2018
Today sees the confirmation of the Royal Wedding the world has been awaiting for months. No, not the national ceremony that will see Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tie the knot, but the return of Prince Richard of Aldovia and Ms. Amber Rose. Yes, the stars of Netflix’s A Christmas Prince are officially reuniting for another seasonal romantic comedy, which will feature Netflix’s very own Royal Wedding.
The Netflix original film, which premiered last December, sees Christmas come early for an aspiring young journalist when she’s sent abroad to get the scoop on a dashing prince who’s poised to be king.
“So cheerfully formulaic that resistance is futile,” we wrote in our review of the movie, which stars Rose McIver as journo Amber, Ben Lamb as the dashing Prince Ricard, and Alice Krige as his disapproving mother. The result went down a treat with subscribers, with 53 people watching it every day for 18 days in a row, according to Netflix’s data.
Now, five months later, the streaming giant has commissioned a follow-up – and has invited us all to the big day.
“Hear Ye, Hear Ye,” tweeted Netflix, announcing the impending nuptials just in time to chime with Harry and Meghan’s own wedding. “Ms. Amber Moore and His Royal Highness Prince Richard of Aldovia kindly request the honor of your presence at their royal wedding later this year.”
A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding was announced alongside a teaser trailer, which gives us a glimpse of the couple tuning in to see Harry and Meghan’s wedding, with Amber hastily making notes about choosing a hashtag, as well as “Must found out what’s in Dad’s speech”, “15th century Ming porcelain really necessary for wedding breakfast?”, and “Make sure no jellied meat on menu”. Will she manage to answer her own questions in time? Find out later this year, when A Christmas Prince returns most likely in December.
