A Christmas Prince: The Royal Baby is a 2019 American Christmas romantic comedy film directed by John Schultz which follows the 2017 original film and its 2018 sequel A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding. The streamer announced the news with a Twitter post of a sonogram that included a baby wearing a crown. The photo included the text “Baby makes 3” and teased that the film will come out during the holiday season this year. The Twitter account captioned the photo, “Some personal news…” The movie begins streaming on Netflix from 5 December.
In A Christmas Prince, American journalist Amber ended up in the royal household of fictional country Aldovia, masquerading as a nanny for Princess Emily and eventually falling in love with Crown Prince Richard. In the second installment called The Royal Wedding, you guessed it – they got married. Now, in part three it’s Christmastime (again) in Aldovia (we wonder what it’s like in summer?) and a royal baby is on the way!
An official description of the plot reads: “It’s Christmas time in Aldovia—and a royal baby is on the way! Amber and Richard host royals from a faraway kingdom to renew an ancient truce, but when the priceless 600-year-old-treaty disappears, peace is put in jeopardy and an ancient curse threatens their family!”
It looks like all our favorites from the first two films will be returning, including Rose McIver and Ben Lamb as newly-minted Queen Amber and King Richard. As for the royals from a faraway land they’ll be hosting? King Tai and Queen Ming of Penglia will be played by Kevin Shen and Momo Yeung. John Schultz, who directed A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding will also return.
While there isn’t an official trailer yet, Netflix did release a sneak preview of all its holiday fare. A clip from the movie shows Richard gifting Amber a tiny pair of blue Converse so that she and the baby can match. The super tease, titled “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Netflix,” also features footage from holiday movies including Kristin Davis and Rob Lowe’s Holiday In The Wild (November 1) and Vanessa Hudgens’ The Knight Before Christmas (November 21).
