About The Movie:
After exposing a credible threat to the monarchy three weeks before Christmas, MI5 Officer Claire (Skarsten) goes undercover inside Kensington Palace as the Royal Nanny to protect the youngest heirs to the throne. Claire is not the best fit for this assignment but all that is about to change as she endures a crash course in nannying by Ms. Lansbury (Scacchi) – who has been charged with training the caretakers of the royal family for the last 30 years. With her cover in place, Claire’s arrival at Kensington is welcomed by Princess Rose (Katie Sheridan, “Lore”) the Future Queen of England and met with a barrage of mischief from Princess Elle (Isabelle Wilson, “The Royal Nanny”) and Prince Robert (Phoenix Laroche, “Trying”), both eager to send the new nanny packing. Relying on a combination of her MI5 and nanny training, she overcomes the challenges that come with her assignment and soon makes the lives of everyone in the royal household better, becoming a trusted confidante. At the same time, sparks fly between Claire and Prince Colin (Jeannotte), Rose’s younger brother, but complications arise when MI5 comes to wrongly suspect a member of the royal family may be directly involved in the plot against the throne. Claire puts her career as well as her life on the line to protect not only the man she is falling for, but also the Royal Family, a family she has come to feel as if she’s become a part of.
