Did you think the royal wedding happened in May? That may have been one royal wedding, but you're forgetting another—A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding, the sequel we have all been waiting for from Netflix, the follow-up to A Christmas Prince, last year's so-bad-it's-good holiday masterpiece that made Hallmark movies look like Martin Scorcese. This time, our intrepid New York Girl Reporter Amber, having already snatched the heart of the almost attractive Prince Richard, has to prepare to become the Queen of Aldovia, Richard's semi-British, semi-generic-Eastern European home country. In the new trailer, Christmas Prince has gone from The Princess Diaries to full Meghan Markle and we couldn't be happier.
From the two-and-a-half minute montage alone, we can already feel the warm glow of A Christmas Prince's inane dialogue and hackneyed plot lines filling our hearts with holiday joy. Richard's middle name, inexplicably, is Bevin. Amber, in the classic disguise of a beret and sunglasses, has to weather the paparazzi, and the antics of a kooky (and possibly insensitively) conceived wedding planner. There are more Canadians pretending to be American. And the major dramatic tension looks like it will come from the fact that Amber might have to—deep breath—give up her blog! Shades of Markle indeed! A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding drops on Netflix on November 30, thank goodness.
