The Plot of Once Upon a Prince
Sussana, the commoner, is happy to accept help from Nate, who is a stranger to her. She met him at her family’s store in Georgia. Romance buds between these two but things take a turn when their photo gets leaked in the press. Susanna is left heartbroken when Nate’s mother calls him back, and guess what! He is called back for the ceremony of his coronation. Yes, he is the future King of Cambria!
There’s a highly romantic scene shown in the movie. It is the first dance just before the coronation. Although it is old-fashioned, everyone’s heart will flutter seeing this scene. Those who have ever read the novel and have not watched the movie yet, just hurry and grab your seats to witness this beautiful romance. It’s a cute TV adaptation of a lovely novel.

Once Upon a Prince is a Hallmark Channel Original Movie. It is rated 6.4/10 on IMDb and 4.5/5 on Vudu. It can be viewed on the Hallmark network. There’s a slight difference between the novel and the movie. The way in which the novel portrays Sussana’s state after her differences with the prince is quite heartbreaking. This makes an emotional impact on the readers and sets the tone for her future. Second thing that is missing is Stephen, Nate’s brother. Despite all these differences, the film is just fabulous.
