‘A ROYAL QUEENS CHRISTMAS’: A BETTER ROYAL ROMANCE ADDITION

More royals and romance plays out in this New York set romance.

A Royal Queens Christmas (2021) Hallmark TV Film Review

Looking for “what’s next” isn’t easy for Daphne or “Dee Dee” (Megan Park). She’s working with her cousin, Zoe (Nicola Correia-Damude) at the bakery she owns, but she does want to find her thing after years in the army. Busy helping prepare a local children’s choir for Christmas, when her dad is unable to play piano for their normal practice, Dee Dee takes advantage of her surroundings and on a whim, she asks a hotel lobby piano player to help. Colin (Julian Morris) is more than a little fine with helping Dee Dee.

Visiting New York from a small European country, it would turn out that Colin has more than just musical talent. He’s really a prince here on business ahead of his parent’s arrival. This is something Dee Dee doesn’t know and so, she becomes a kind of tour guide as they enjoy discovering the city together…

Of the 2021 Christmas Hallmark movies I’ve seen, I did enjoy A Royal Queens Christmas more than Christmas at Castle Hart, which is Hallmark’s other “royal romance” this year. In fact, I probably like this one better than any of Hallmark’s recent(ish) royal tropes. It’s way better (SADLY) than Megan’s prior role falling for a prince and it’s better (meaning the feeling it invokes and less “silly” antics, too) than last year’s royal comedy as well. Sad saying this since this one has flaws.

While I like Megan Park fine, she’s not a favorite actress though this is probably the best role I’ve seen her play. However she does a terrible job keeping her (early scene) New York accent intact. It’s cute when she nails it, but more often than not she forgets to use it. If Julian Morris sounds like a name unfamiliar to you, you may have seen him in the 2017 BBC adaptation of Little Women or recur in the TV shows Once Upon a Time and New Girl. The rest of the cast is pretty good.

Though this is also one of the titles (so far) that is all about the traditional scenes. Still, it’s got a feeling of warmth and charm. If you want to visit Queens and see a softer side of the city (through movie magic) you’ll enjoy A Royal Queens Christmas.
