Premieres Saturday, April 7 at 9 PM ET/PT on Hallmark Channel
Landscape architect Susanna (Park) just found out her boyfriend isn’t ready to settle down and now she’s stranded with a flat tire and no jack. But lucky for her handsome Nate (Keltz), complete with a British accent, pulls up. While he’s never changed a tire, she has, and as they work together under the “Lover’s Oak” she finds out he’s in public relations in a country called Cambria. What Nate doesn’t mention is he’s actually Prince Nathaniel and about to be crowned King Nathaniel.
Though there’s a spark between them, he must find a Cambrian bride. Nevertheless, the two fall for each other and their intimacy is caught on film. His secret out, a sad prince must leave his sweet Susanna behind and head home to appease his mother. Determined to prove her son’s “American” can’t handle royal life, the Queen arranges for her to apprentice with a landscape architect in Cambria but her plan backfires when the two grow even closer. Telling Susanna if she loves her son she’ll let him go, the Queen leaves Nate’s American sweetheart with a painful choice.
Distraught when Susanna suddenly disappears during his coronation, Nate confronts his mother, explaining his love for his country and Susanna are both equally true. Now he must find a way to be Susanna’s Prince Charming as well as Cambria’s loyal King. “Once Upon a Prince” is a Annuit Coeptis Entertainment film. Maura Dunbar and Tracy Andreen are the executive producers and Oliver De Caigny serves as the producer. Alexander J.F. Wright directed from a script by Tracy Andreen, based on a novel by Rachel Hauck.
