As King Edvard and Queen Paige prepare to leave Copenhagen on their honeymoon, Eddie, to please Paige, changes their destination from a Caribbean island to the fictional crown protectorate of Belavia; shortly after they arrive, a henchman (Oliver) for the ambitious Danish prime minister (Polonius) sees the couple, and Paige recognizes Scott, now a journalist, previously a high-school boyfriend. Soon the king and queen discover Oliver, machines, and a crew, about to start clearing a forest preserve to make way for an oil pipeline; the king orders them not to begin. The royal couple make progress with the prince of Belavia, but Polonius does his dirty tricks. Edvard and Paige learn that Scott has secretly taken part in the evil work of Polonius and Oliver. Many hijinks abound, but, predictably, good and right prevail, so Eddie and Paige win, as does Belavia. The Danish parliament follow the leadership of their king, thereby defeating Polonius.
User Reviews: New Queen Paige (Kam Heskin) has just been married to her handsome, Danish King Edvard (Chris Geere). The romance between the American medical student and her prince-turned-king is finally fully committed. Now its time for the honeymoon, of course. But, the original plans to travel to a warm island has Paige in some sadness, for its near the holidays and she, from Wisconsin, is used to a white Christmas. Sensing her mood, Edvard surprises her by whisking her off to a fictitious, unspoiled little Scandinavian country instead. It’s heaven. There is skiing, tall fir trees and togetherness. Alas, the new prime minister under Eddie is secretly wicked and has been planning to spoil the tiny country’s landscape with mining. And, no one informed him of the honeymoon’s changed venue, either. Afraid that the king will find out what he has been up to, the PM sends a former, Yankee boyfriend of Paige to the country to distract them. It works, in part, for Scott talks up a storm and turns up wherever the couple goes. But, is it too big a deception to hide? Maybe! Then, too, Ed gets somewhat concerned that Scott may be trying to woo his bride away from him! Is he? Maybe again! Ho, ho, ho, what have we here? This is a nice third installment to a truly wonderful series. Heskin is a spunky beauty and Geere, who replaces the original Ed for the first time, has a nice look and manner. The rest of the cast is also quite wonderful, especially the gentleman playing the evil minister. Then, the scenery is so gorgeous that you want to hop on a plane while the costumes, story and direction are absolutely worthy of praise. Are you a big fan of the series that began with the Julia Stiles original movie? You are in for a royal treat, then, as you will undoubtedly take a shine to film number three.
