Aaron Tveit and Laura Osnes team up for Hallmark's "One Royal Holiday."

It is about a bubbly well-meaning nurse that unknowingly gives a ride to a royal prince and his mother back to her father's inn. The Hallmark Christmas movie follows Prince James and his mother, Queen Gabriella, who get stuck in New England thanks to a sudden snowstorm and have no one back to their country (a fictional Hallmark country) thanks to closed airports. A chance encounter to retrieve hot tea from a doughnut shop allows James to meet Anna, who offers to give them a ride and a place to stay at her father's inn.

"One Royal Holiday" is heartfelt, humorous, and cheerful, with the opening credits featuring the song "Winter Wonderland" sung by Osnes and Tveit's leading stars. The theater industry was hit hard thanks to coronavirus's curse, which has led to a shutdown of Broadway until next year. Theaters were also shut down across the country and are still struggling to keep going through the pandemic, causing a loss of millions in revenue [VIDEO]. The movie also features Broadway stars Krystal Joy Brown ("Hamilton"), Victoria Rose and Bradley Rose, and Tom McGowan.

'One Royal Holiday' recap and review

Anna (Laura Osnes) is a nurse working at a Boston hospital who decides to go on vacation for the holidays by heading home to her hometown and family in.

James (Aaron Tveit) is first seen giving a speech that mentions his father's loss and references his attempt to fill his father's shoes. "One Royal Holiday" weaves a love story that finds two people dealing with their grief from losing a parent and coming to terms with changes in their lives. James has a prim and proper personality, which is the opposite of his mother (Victoria Clark), who is more carefree and has a little twinkle in her step.

One ride later and the two royals are stranded at a New England inn and are soon making excuses just to prolong their stay. The Pajama Ball is what the movie revolves around, which Anna describes as being a way to unwind and have fun in sleepwear versus dressing up in fancy gowns and heels. The pajama part is revoked later in the Hallmark movie when the ball turns into a formal affair with a side party in pajamas for the children.

The ball gives the characters an excuse to dress up with Anna, given an assortment of her late mother's former dresses.

James is regal and used to having all the amenities of his prince status with room service, bellhops, and casual attire being formal suits. He slowly starts to unwind and soon finds himself through various moments spent with Anna that is quiet and sincere, with the two sharing many heart-to-hearts. "One Royal Holiday" explores the change that comes with opening your heart and allowing yourself to be vulnerable. The Hallmark movie focuses on the Christmas address that James has to give, which is the center of his arc as proving the monarchy's importance and proving to their people the monarchy are for them rests on his shoulders.

It's delightful to watch this Christmas movie twist the perspective of a normal person entering a palace by having the royals taken out of the palace and placed at a family inn. This provides them with a chance to part of this close-knit community, which has Christmas traditions with tree-trimming and a parade.

The queen is an amazing character as her independent nature provides several instances of humor and heart, from her refusing to be served food to insisting to her son that they tell Anna the truth of their royal status. Sweet moments that are classic to Hallmark are woven throughout the Christmas movie with Anna knocking on James' door to leave him a plate of food (and a candy cane), James opened the door with a tin of popcorn tucked under his arm, and waltzing in the ballroom.

The ending presents a happily ever after, which finds James and his mother returning to their country where he gives the Christmas address, only to show up in the nick of time to escort Anna to the ball and to tell her how he feels. The royals join Anna and her family for Christmas around the tree in their pajamas and giving gifts.
