However, when the project’s deadline is shortened, she finds they work well together under pressure. Also, her relationship grows with Paul outside of their project when he meets her family. Paul falls in love with both America and his new work partner. Lauren can’t deny how she’s grown to love him in return. However, she and her co-workers are unaware of Paul’s true identity. He’s actually Prince Edward Charles. Will Prince Edward’s one lie destroy their relationship, or will their love for one another persevere?

A ROYAL CHRISTMAS ENGAGEMENT is a fun, lighthearted romance that includes positive moral, redemptive themes about the importance of telling the truth, forgiveness and loving your family. While Edward lies about his true identity throughout the movie, his actions have negative consequences and point to the power of forgiveness.

More Detail:

A ROYAL CHRISTMAS ENGAGEMENT is a Christian holiday romance on UPtv about Lauren, an ambitious ad executive forced to work with Paul, a foreign consultant who’s actually a royal prince.

The movie opens with Lauren’s boss putting her on the next big project to create an ad campaign for a chocolate company. Lauren’s excited about the possibility of moving ahead in her career, until she learns she must work with a consultant from England named Paul. Lauren believes she can complete the project on her own and resolves not to pay any mind to what the newcomer has to say.

Meanwhile, Paul and his good friend, Prince Edward, discuss their plans for the Christmas holidays. Edward says he feels held down by his responsibilities in his royal family. Paul notes that his wife is due to give birth. So, the two friends agree that Edward can go to America instead of Paul to help Lauren.

Upon his arrival, Edward poses as Paul and meets Lauren. They get off to a rocky start because Lauren doesn’t want to accept his help. However, after the deadline for her pitch is moved, Lauren and the undercover Prince find that they work well together under pressure.

Edward meets Lauren’s family and falls in love with both America and his new work partner. Lauren can’t deny how she’s grown to love him in return.

However, the truth is bound to come out sooner or later. Will Edward’s lie destroy his relationship with Lauren, or will their love for one another persevere?
