Christmas is right around the corner; and Jules Daly (Kate McGrath) is doing her best to create a loving home as new guardian to her mischievous niece and nephew. But when she loses her job and an exasperated nanny on the same day; a mysterious and unexpected invitation arrives a travel to Europe and spend a royal Christmas with the childrenas distant grandfather a the Duke of Castlebury Hall (Roger Moore)! Itas a new world for Jules and the children as they discover their new prim and proper surroundings in the castle; but soon laughter begins to echo in the once quiet halls; filling everyone with renewed hope and joy for the season. And when Jules captures the heart of the dashing Prince Ashton (Sam Heughan); both of their lives begin to change inunexpected ways! Featuring a faraway land; an enchanting romance; and the unbreakable bonds of family; this inspirational tale is sure to become a new holiday tradition!?
Raising two children on your own isn't easy, but Jules Daly is discovering that being the sole guardian of her deceased sister and brother-in-law's children is doubly difficult. As if dealing with the kids' first Christmas without their parents isn't hard enough, Jules loses her job, the nanny quits, her teenage nephew Milo steals a video game, and Milo and his 7-year-old sister Maddie are constantly bickering. A knock on the door brings an offer of a holiday abroad at Castlebury Hall, the mansion owned by the children's grandfather Duke Huntington. Jules hesitates because the Duke previously wanted nothing to do with her sister or his grandchildren, but eventually decides the threesome has little to lose. When they arrive, the Duke is not exactly bursting with goodwill and holiday spirit, and Jules's outspokenness combined with the children's wild ways threaten to make a bad situation even worse. But surprisingly, disrupting everyone's routines proves a powerful catalyst for positive change. The opulent mansion and breathtaking countryside provide a beautiful setting for the film, and Katie McGrath, Sam Heughan, and Roger Moore portray their characters well. While the family's difficult situation is fairly believable, the resolutions come far too easily. Nonetheless, the sentiment that the bonds of love and family can overcome even the strongest adversity resonates at any time of the year. (Ages 7 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

Characters were not all engaging, though. Katie McGrath was cute as could be and believable as the girl with no money. But there was little if no chemistry between her and Heughan. Roger Moore was stiff most of the way through the film. Was he chosen for the name? Did he need a paycheck? Best characters in the movie were the service staff. Loved them!
I would love to see this movie become a holiday standard along with Home Alone and all the others.
This movie, A Princess For Christmas is a wonderful movie! Katie McGrath did a wonderful job playing the Aunt to a couple of children who lost their parents in a car accident at Christmas time the year before. She is the sister who lost her sister. Her brother in law happened to be a son of a Duke who had nothing to do with him because he married a commoner. Time went on, after a year the Duke wants to see is grandchildren. The grandfather being played by Roger Moore. He other son is played by Sam Heughan who carries a British accent very well. I think he is British in real life. I really don't know. This is a must see movie. I won't give away any spoilers. Let's just say it is Hallmark and it does have a great ending. This being shown on Hallmark surprised me. Hallmark isn't very good at ending movies well at all. This one, they did a great job!
It stars Katie McGrath as the aunt of a pair of kids who lost their parents and now, as Christmas approaches, she is about to lose her job. It doesn't pay much anyway, but times are tough and she's out the door with few prospects.
But help is on the way: the father of the two children was the son of a Duke, who invites them all to spend the holiday at the family castle in Europe.
This is a very pleasant love story, with good acting, some lovely scenery and characters that it is very easy to like (most of them -- you don't want it to be TOO easy for them, do you?)
It does adhere to more or less the usual formula of Christmas romances but it's the details that always win me over. I liked the fact that her job was in antiques and that she could fix mechanical things and had a true love for Christmas in a place where Christmas was not very welcome. The other characters too were interesting and I find the whole business very entertaining.
emerges with soft edges so that it takes a
moment this little sweet person has just
challenged a powerful duke used to having his
way. When she's forbidden to bring a Christmas
tree Iinto the castle because "it Will drip sap all
over the mahogany", she buys one and puts it up
so her niece and nephew will have a joyous
Christmas. Her quiet courage is housed in a
person of beauty, compassion and love for her
sister's children. She gradually wins the hearts
of the castle staff and wins an ally in the Duke's
son, Ashton. This is a fairy tale rooted in the
nourishing love, wisdom and courage of a young woman from Buffalo.
