Joy Lenz (“Colony,” “One Tree Hill,” Extortion) and Will Kemp (“Code Black,” “Reign,” Slumber) star in “Royal Matchmaker,” a new, original movie premiering Saturday, March 24 (9 p.m. ET/PT) on Hallmark Channel as part of the network’s “Spring Fever” programming event featuring an irresistible lineup of romantic, original movie premieres celebrating the hope of the spring season.
About The Movie:
Kate (Lenz) has a gift for matchmaking, and now her reputation as the “Queen of Hearts” has reached King Edward of Voldavia (Simon Dutton, Jupiter Ascending). He wants his son Prince Sebastian (Kemp) to present his future bride at the Jubilee, and brings Kate onboard to help. Soon it’s clear the Prince has a moat around his heart, and trusts only his valet Victor (Joseph Thompson, “Elementary”), so it’s no wonder Kate can’t break down the Prince’s emotional armor. But while shadowing His Highness on a day of ribbon cutting and dodging the press, she sees his tender side when he evokes his mother’s memory at a dedication. Kate has also learned the Prince helped re-roof schools on his travels so she takes him to a rundown rec center to lend a hand. There, she notices Victor shares a spark with a woman and is glad to see she hasn’t lost her touch as the Prince has yet to accept any of her matches. But Kate isn’t too upset since she’s fallen for Sebastian herself. Still, she’s bent on doing her job, and introduces him to Petra (Eva Trill, “Line of Duty”), her top match. Heartbroken when they click, Kate runs off, unable to bear watching the happy couple at the Jubilee. But while Petra certainly looks the part of a Queen, Valdovia’s future King can’t stop scanning the ballroom for his matchmaker. But she’s already at the station waiting for her train out of town, believing she’s already found Sebastian his royal match.
