It’s not a common occurrence for a prince to just suddenly arrive in your life, so join with your entire family and experience a refreshing and beautiful love story between a prince and a romance novel writer, as they overcome royal obstacles to live their dreams and find happiness of the heart.
Emily Miller (Danica McKellar) is stammering to explain to her publisher that she is on top of it and her second book is coming along well. Not true . . . and she will be in breach of contract if the first three chapters are not ready by the end of the month!
Emily’s best friend, Becca (Zarrin Darnell-Martin) is supportive and encouraging but can’t help with Emily’s severe case of writer’s block. But the property management company she works for just received an urgent call for a site manager for an empty chalet in the scenic mountains owned by a wealthy European family. And it’s the perfect, quiet place to unwind and write her romantic novel! Emily is in!
Arriving at the stunning chalet seems to be the ultimate answer, but try as she might, the words are not coming. A scary noise at the door in early morning brings Emily face-to-face with Prince Henry (Neil Bledsoe) who has unexpectedly arrived with his entourage and demands Emily prepare tea. And it gets more demanding as Emily is reminded of her contract to “assist with all reasonable requests made by the property owners or their representatives.” Emily is stuck with the duties, cannot quit, or Becca will be in big trouble.
When the Prince reads part of his speech and Emily calls it “stuffy” and gives him her version, he is intrigued and takes her suggestion. Much to Emily’s surprise, she is reprimanded by Ms. Tilson (Jennifer Wigmore), the Prince’s Chief of Staff and told not to speak unless spoken to which is a rude awakening for Emily as to her perceived role. As the Prince continues to prepare for his important upcoming speech a week before his coronation, he must also deal with selling the chalet as he cannot own property outside the kingdom. As Emily’s relationship with the Royals teeters on insubordination, Henry is beginning to appreciate Emily’s wit and outspokenness and is impressed with her knowledge and zest for fun.
As they are thrown together due to circumstance and must also prepare the chalet for sale by the end of the week, little sparks are beginning to fly. They are having fun and Henry is sharing his very personal dreams with Emily, knowing full well they will never be fulfilled, as ruling his country must come before his own happiness. Sensing something is dreadfully amiss, Henry’s father, King William (Tom Rooney) arrives at the chalet and demands Prince Henry take his responsibilities seriously. When damaging photos and the story of Henry’s engagement to Princess Beatrix are made public, Emily realizes falling in love with the prince is not an option and promptly leaves the chalet. With the coronation happening at the chalet in a few days, the future is pre-determined.
But when Emily must return to the chalet to retrieve her notebook, she is witness to Prince Henry’s coronation and the brave step he takes to free himself to follow his dream. A twist at the end of the story creates happiness for everyone!
The Dove Take: We have a choice in life “to carve out a life worth living or to be carved out by life itself.” Be sure to recognize the difference and be the sculptor that takes the plunge to attain forever happiness of the heart. Dove approved for all ages!
