Storyline

Stacy, a type-a planner with a penchant for schedules, takes a spontaneous trip to the charming land of Belgravia at the encouragement of her sous chef and best friend, Kevin. While preparing for the Royal Christmas Baking Contest, Stacy finds herself faced with an identical stranger, and a strange request. Free-spirited but royally obligated, Duchess Margaret Delacourt wants nothing so much as one last chance to experience life as a "normal person" before she dutifully marries the crown Prince of Belgravia. Stacy can give her that wish. From questionable equestrian skills and the true meaning of charity to slipping accents and snowball fights, this is an adventure that no holiday romantic should miss.

Generic princess and the pauper movie
16 November 2018 | by hjalsayeghSee all my reviews

A movie that belongs on the hallmark channel. As generic as can be without anything that'll offend.

The princess here is actually a Duchess and the pauper is a baker and they run into each other on Christmas while the later is preparing for a baking competition.

I feel like I read a studio exec. checklist just now... Well the rest of the movie actually goes like a checklist too. Girls meet, switch places, go through the motions of the Prince and the Pauper but with a princess diary peppered in as well as a Christmas miracle for good measures and true love because why not. Everyone is happy all the time and you can just play this in the background and miss nothing.

It's a piece of fluff so if that's your thing go ahead, just keep in mind that the first 15 minutes is a painfully awkward exposition that was both badly written and poorly acted. Get past that and you get to... every hallmark movie ever.
