Storyline

Allie Evans is a maid who just lost her job at a hotel for not getting a client's room prepared in time. She is then hired by a man named Fergus (who is working for a hotel patron that overheard what happened to her) where he invites her to the European country of Winshire to work as a governess for his employer. Upon arrival, Allie discovers that Fergus' boss is King Maximillian and meets his daughter Theodora who had been terrorizing other authority figures since the untimely death of her mother the Queen of Winshire. As Allie bonds with Theodora while getting acquainted to the other servants and Chancellor Riggs, she learns that King Maximillian is scheduled to be wed to Countess Celia. Written by Rtkat3

Quotes

Theodora: [to Celia and Max] Miss Evans says that you should never yell at a child. If you're angry, just lean in and whisper quietly. It's scarier.
Allie: [to Celia and Max] That was more of a joke.
Theodora: [to Celia and Max] Miss Evans says that good parenting lies somewhere between "Don't do that" and "What the heck."

Table for one, party of Princess!
12 December 2017 | by kz917-1See all my reviews

Danica McKellar and Rupert Penry-Jones star as the maid turned governess and King that is fighting what his heart wants and what others are telling him his duties require.

Enter the King's daughter, Princess Theodora. Teddy, who does not think she needs a governess nor does she care for the Countess who is eventually supposed to marry her father.

The supporting cast is very, very charming as are the leads. A lovely movie - worth a watch.
