I feel like the royal-themed movies hold a special place in viewers’ hearts and they are truly some of the best Hallmark movies in the lineup. These films, often set against the backdrop of picturesque castles and amazing landscapes (Often of other countries!), offer an escape into a world where love and royalty intertwine. Let’s dive into our royal movie checklist!

​My Top 5 Hallmark Royal Movies:

Here are my top five absolute favorites of the Hallmark royal movies. or the “Gems” in the crown… if you will. (I got a good chuckle out of that, I hope you did too!)

1. Crown for Christmas

Starring: Danica McKellar and Rupert Penry-Jones

My number one Hallmark Royal movie, and one of the best Hallmark Christmas movies of all time. Starring Danica McKellar and _______. The King falls for his daughter’s (a young girl that’s very mischievous!) nanny, who has shaken up his dull and dreary household after only a few weeks time, all the while with the backdrop of the magic of Christmas. Set against the picturesque backdrop of a snowy European castle during Christmas, the movie weaves a tale of love, family, and the spirit of the holidays. Allie not only finds love in an unexpected place but also helps to bridge the gap between King Maximillian and his daughter, bringing warmth and joy back into their lives.

2. Royal Matchmaker

In “Royal Matchmaker,” a struggling New York City matchmaker named Kate Gleason gets an unusual opportunity.  King Edward of Voldavia hires her to find a suitable wife for his son, Prince Sebastian, in time for a national celebration.

Prince Sebastian is known for his carefree personality, making finding him a compatible match a challenge.  As the royal wedding deadline approaches, Kate manages to find a perfect candidate for the Prince. However, in the process, she discovers her own feelings for him blossoming.

Will Kate prioritize her duty as a matchmaker or follow her heart? The movie explores themes of love, duty, and finding happiness in unexpected places, all wrapped up in Hallmark’s signature feel-good style.

This is a gem of a movie. I adore it.
