THE PRINCESS SWITCH is a fun, cute and clean movie, with strong positive moral themes, that the whole family can enjoy together.
Stacy is a professional baker in Chicago. When her best friend and baking partner, Kevin, enters her in a baking contest in Belgravia, she’s at first hesitant to go. Stacy’s personality is to plan, plan, plan, but the contest is miles and miles away and happening very soon. So, Stacy, Kevin, and Kevin’s daughter, Olivia, decide to go together.
When they arrive, they start setting up their baking supplies, and Stacy runs into a woman who looks exactly like her. This woman turns out to be the Duchess of Montenaro, named Margaret. Margaret has always longed to have some normalcy in her life. So, she asks Stacy if they can switch places. At first, Stacy doesn’t think it’s a good idea, but Margaret agrees to sponsor Olivia to dance in the ballet in Belgravia if Stacy agrees to do it.
The two young women do the switch, and Stacy has to fool Margaret’s fiancé, Prince Edward. Not too long of time passes before Prince Edward and Stacy start to have a real connection. Will she be heartbroken when Margaret and Stacy switch back? Will Margaret be able to pull off the switch without anyone noticing?
