As the holiday season approaches, Crown Prince of Christmas narrates the story of a traditional monarchy country that finds itself at a crossroads. The current king, who is tired and unwell, is considering stepping down, leaving the throne to be taken over by his son, Prince Jack (Jilon VanOver). Jack, who is known for being irresponsible and impulsive, is unsure about taking on the position of king but decides to grab the opportunity to show his father and the entire nation that he is capable of fulfilling the duties of the throne.

Jack arrived in the small town of Trenton, where he meets a charming and lovely baker named Meridith (Cindy Busby). The two takes an unexpected liking for each other, starting a swoon-worthy Christmas romance. Meridith is unaware of Jack's position because he introduces himself as JJ, a simple businessman, not revealing his true identity. The two enjoy each other's company, bonding over their love of Christmas and mutual appreciation for holiday traditions.

As Jack gets to know Meridith's family, he learns about the importance of family, friendship, and love. The interactions with Meridith's younger sister adds a sprinkle of humor to the film, allowing audiences to lighten up from the typical seriousness that is expected in royal films. However, with the reveal of Jack's true position, things undoubtedly become complicated.

Meridith is hesitant to become involved with a prince and have a role in the spotlight. As the new king will need a queen, the prince's parents and security guard urge him to make a choice for a spouse soon. This part of the movie raises the question of whether one should keep their responsibilities separate from their happiness. Love and duty coexist, but sometimes the line between the two is uncertain.

As the story progresses, viewers witness the incorporation of traditional practices, such as the boxing day ball that is often associated with monarchies. The setup provides the right charm and elegance to the movie, with the costumes, music and set design capturing the essence of royalty.

The Prince's mother, Queen Emily (Nancy Harding), plays a significant role in urging her son to embrace the upcoming transition and reminds him of his duty to his country. However, the movie also introduces an aspect of challenging tradition, as Prince Jack navigates the expectations of his family and the expectations he has of himself. Should he continue with the pre-established traditions, or should he pave his path?

Crown Prince of Christmas incorporates themes of family, loyalty, love, and duty, creating a perfect blend of holiday cheer and the seriousness that comes with royal responsibilities. It has a charm that makes it appealing to all age groups, offering a romantic and heart-warming take on a fairy tale story. Cindy Busby and Jilon VanOver's performances are outstanding, portraying the perfect chemistry and naturalistic acting to add to the film's authentic appeal.

In conclusion, Crown Prince of Christmas delivers a well-rounded family film, making it a must-watch for fans of both holiday and monarchic movies. The film approaches the idea of love and royalty without being too obtrusive, spreading a message of compromise and understanding. The plot isn't too complicated, allowing viewers to follow along and be immersed in the film's trappings.
