19 LOL Moments From A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding
The unexpected viral hit of 2017, A Christmas Prince, is back for a second zany instalment…
We’re putting a SPOILER ALERT out there right now, but chances are you’ve already watched A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding, arguably this year’s most anticipated sequel.
Having dropped on Netflix on Friday 30th November, the movie follows hero ‘journalist’ Amber Moore as she prepares for her wedding to King Richard of Aldovia, and it’s every bit as ridiculously brilliant as the first A Christmas Prince.
While sadly Amber’s not taking any meme-worthy notes this time around, there are plenty of LOL moments – these are our faves:
1. Amber’s passport
Barely a minute into the movie we get a flash of Amber and Richard’s passports to symbolise their long-distance love over the past year. Pause on Amber’s document and you’ll see she was born in ‘Ney York, U.S.A.’ Is that some suburb in New Jersey we’ve never heard of or…?
2. The magazine covers
Her newfound celebrity means Amber has covered fictional mags DCi News, Entertainment Social, and the delightfully titled Rashed, labelled ‘A Journalist Queen’. Where’s my cover? Helloooo?
3. The new dad
For some reason Daniel Fathers, who played Amber’s dad Rudy in the first A Christmas Prince, doesn’t return to play him in the second instalment. John Guerrasio steps in and, to handle the fact that he looks NOTHING like Daniel Fathers, the writers threw in a few lolzy jokes.
First up, when he and Amber arrive at Aldovia Airport and Amber is hiding in a hat, scarf and sunglasses combo: “I don’t need a disguise. I feel like a brand new person. Must be this fresh mountain air in Aldovania.”
Then, when Rudy meets the inimitable Princess Emily: “He looks different in person. I thought he had a goatee?”
Amber: “He shaved it for the wedding.”
Well played, writers. Well played.
4. Cousin Simon’s return
Remember black sheep of the family, Simon, who tried to steal Richard’s crown in the first movie? Well he’s back and the scene where he re-emerges has to be seen to be believed. Also, he’s gotten into cryptocurrency, so that kind of says it all.
5. The first wedding dress
If wedding designer Sahil had his way, Amber would walk down the aisle in “Jimmy Choo Choos” and a frock that resembles an extravagant toilet roll cover.
6. The running Converse joke
On unveiling Princess Emily’s dress for her school play Amber hands her a pair of glittery blue Converse sneakers to wear. Then, while walking down the aisle, Amber lifts her dress to show off a sparkly pair of her own – just like when she wore them under her party gowns in the first film. Because she’s not a regular queen, she’s a cool queen, amirite?
7. The plot of Princess Emily’s school Christmas play
Every bit as outrageous as the plot of A Christmas Prince itself… and apparently a true story.
8. Emily’s crush, Tom Quill
Great name, even better hair.
9. Amber’s Blog drama
First of all, the fact that her blog is literally called ‘Amber’s Blog’ is brilliant. But then when Mrs Averill starts censoring it and pushing for its closure, A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding suddenly becomes VERY Harry and Meghan. Wonder if HRH will be watching?
10. Richard’s use of the phrase “keep calm and carry on”
We’re not at war here, Dickie.
11. The fart joke
“I would be exuding something else if this dress was any tighter,” says Amber during the royal photo call. That’s a fart joke, right?
12. Amber’s dodgy archery
Reminiscent of her toppling the Ming Dynasty vase in A Christmas Prince, Amber manages to shoot her arrow right through a fancy statue in the palace grounds, shattering it and narrowly avoiding her mates who have appeared from New York for the wedding.
13. The pub in Aldovia
Resembles your hometown local on Christmas Eve, naturally.
14. The revelation that Princess Emily is a low key hacker
Somebody grab the domain Aldoviahallofrecords.com before it’s too late. Also, forgot your password? Just hammer the keyboard with your fists and you’re BOUND to get it right.
15. The bachelorette party
Tiaras for all.
16. Celebrity Tattle
Move over Page Six; Amber’s pub antics have her on the front of Celebrity Tattle, much to Mrs Averill’s dismay.
17. The hidden message in King Richard’s address
Look closely at the news ticker and you’ll see the headline “US Pres Insists Earth Is Flat And Round Earth Stories Are ‘Fake News’”. Cough. Should out to AST, too – that’s Aldovian Standard Time, duh!
18. Queen Helena catching the bouquet
I smell a romance between her and royal aide, Louis Zabala. How very Princess Diaries.
19. Wedding DJ Emily
Is there anything this kid CAN’T do?!
