Princess Beatrice's days of enjoying the regal life are numbered unless her only daughter, Princess Alexandra, makes a good impression on a distant cousin when he pays a surprise visit to their palace. Prince Albert has searched all over Europe for a bride and he's bored by the whole courtship routine. He is more interested in the estate's dairy than Alexandra's rose garden. And then he starts playing football with the tutor and Alexandra's brothers. Invite the tutor to the ball that night and watch how gracefully Alexandra dances with him. Written by

[very perturbed about Prince Albert spending much of the day observing mechanized milking machines in the estate's dairy barn]

Excellent romantic interlude film, with shining performances of a wonderful, witty, and intelligent story and script. Sad and funny.
Guinness is perfection as the gentlemanly "fish" prince, and Jourdan and Kelly convince as lovers separated by circumstances of birth. Realistic, somwhat perplexing conclusion with a lovely soliloquy delivered with style by Guinness. A delight!
