Storyline

The Queen's youngest son is off to university, mainly because "I'm hopeless at anything else". Barry, his new bodyguard, has no time for the royal family and left school at fifteen. He certainly didn't volunteer for this job, and is damned if he's going to enjoy it. Yet he can't help liking the hopelessly unworldly young prince, at least, until they both set their eyes on the new American student! Written by Anonymous

Trivia

For its American television broadcast on PBS, the title of the film was changed to "The Prince of Hearts" to avoid confusion with the famous Romberg-Donnelly 1924 operetta and 1954 Mario Lanza film "The Student Prince", neither of which have anything in common with this film other than the fact that the prince is sent to a university.

HIGHLY ENTERTAINING
23 August 1999 | by Smiley-19See all my reviews

This movie was amazing! I found myself laughed and laughed to see the satire to the Monarchy along with lots of scene when Barry tried to teach Prince "Botty" to win Grace's hearts. Robson Green was charming. I found myself a new favorite actor.
