Netflix’s ‘The Princess Switch’ Is Here To Become Your New Guilty Pleasure

Cancels all plans

The unofficial rule of the festive season is that it is to be filled with cheesy rom-coms, preferably based around Christmas and preferably including plotlines that’d never happen in reality – The Holiday, Love Actually and Bridget Jones’s Diary. 

And thanks to Netflix, we now have new (granted, nowhere near as good) festive films to binge on: last year, The Christmas Prince and this year, The Princess Switch


The new movie, which is already released on Netflix, stars Vanessa Hudgens as both a baker (Stacy De Novo) and a soon-to-be princess (Lady Margaret Delacourt) who, after bumping into each other and realising they’re practically twins, switch places and pretend to be each other.

Naturally, Margaret falls in love with Stacy’s co-worker and Stacy falls in love with Margaret’s fiancé. We’ll let you figure out the rest.

Despite being ridiculously predictable, making zero sense in some (read: most) parts and being almost too cheesy, the internet is already obsessed with 2018’s hottest new rom-com.

Watch the trailer below and then cancel all your evening plans.
