A Princess for Christmas
By Peter Zelasko

By Peter Zelasko

“A Princess for Christmas,” is a fun, family film starring Katie McGrath (“Merlin”) as Jules Daly, a frenetic 20-something who becomes guardian to her young niece Maddie (newcomer Leilah De Meza) and nephew Milo (Travis Turner) when her sister and brother-in-law are tragically killed in an accident.

Jules loses both her job and her nanny, and the approach of Christmas only reminds the inexperienced “mom” and her two charges of the loved ones they lost around Christmas the previous year.

But all hope of a happy Christmas is not lost.

Enter Paisley Winterbottom (Miles Richardson, “Midsomer Murders”), with an invitation for a family reunion with the children’s paternal grandfather Edward, the Duke of Castlebury Hall played by Sir Roger Moore, and his lone surviving son Ashton, Prince of Castlebury (Sam Heughan).

The Hallmark Channel original movie “A Princess for Christmas,” is a great film for the entire family to watch together during the Advent season. The story of family healing reminds us that sometimes we just have to believe. That belief renews our hope, and allows us to find love once again.

Catholic husband and wife Michael and Janeen Damian (“Flicka 3”) co-wrote the script and produced the film with Michael also directing.

“A Princess for Christmas” airs Dec. 3 on the Hallmark Channel.
