At the University of Wisconsin in Madison, Paige, a pre-med student and a farm girl from Manitowoc, meets Eddie, a fellow student from Denmark, whom she first dislikes but later accepts, likes, and loves. Paige takes Eddie to her home for the Thanksgiving weekend. Paparazzi find and photograph the couple, and Paige learns that Eddie is truly Crown Prince Edvard. Failing health causes King Haraald to abdicate in favor of Edvard, so Eddie returns to Copenhagen, then Paige follows her heart to Copenhagen, where Edvard warmly welcomes her, takes her to the castle, and introduces her to the royal family. Queen Rosalind first expresses opposition to Paige but later relents; King Haraald soon warms to her; Edvard proposes, Paige accepts, and he gives her a ring. However, Paige recalls her previous dream of going to Doctors Without Borders, so she breaks off and returns to school. Still, though, Edvard shows up at Paige's graduation and suggests an alternate plan. Written by DocRushing

User Reviews

True love -- an age old feeling we all seek.
29 August 2004 | by boland_sSee all my reviews

I've been reading the comments from everyone on the movie. I just wanted to say a couple of things. First off, if one turns off their analytical side and simply watch the movie, they might be surprised.

Every female, regardless of age, secretly wants to be loved like the classic 'princess' stories. It's not so much about a princess as it is about the real love between two people.

These kinds of stories still exist simply because we yearn for them, even if it is buried deep inside us.

The most important part of the movie is not location, government or royalty, it is the journey these two 'people' take after meeting. The setting for each before meeting sets up the movie and introduces them, flaws and all to us.

this is simply a love story that transcends time and age. Watch it with emotion instead of analyzing it.
