A Royal Surprise Mingles Modern Romance with Culture and Tradition

How would having a fairy tale ending change your life? Spending time reading a few modern twists to classic fairy tales that we will most likely remember from our childhoods, I came to realize that soon after we learn to believe in the magic of happily-ever-after, we suddenly learn these dynamic fables are a far stretch from reality. Abandoning the dream of an epic adventure or romantic fantasy can be a heartbreaking awakening. Offering an escape from the highs and lows of everyday life, romantic-comedy movies allow us the safe space to abandon real life situations for a perfectly crafted vision of romance. Showcasing an international love affair, A Royal Surprise is unique to the rom-com movie genre, as it mingles modern romance with culture and tradition for all to enjoy.

A Royal Surprise Mingles Modern Romance with Culture and Tradition

"Riley Stevenson accepts an invitation to visit Mandla, her boyfriend’s, family in South Africa. When she arrives, she is shocked to learn that Mandla is not only extremely wealthy, but also the prince of Chacula, a village near Johannesburg! The news puts Riley’s trust in Mandla in jeopardy, and now is up to him to win her love back. Riley must decide if she will give Mandla a second chance while also winning the approval of his royal family."

Why do we love watching romantic movies so much? Becoming immersed in the relationship drama of fictional characters bring to life common themes which help us to believe in the power of love. Romance genres are phenomenal at adapting to movie tropes dating back to historic Shakespearean masterpieces to modern rom-coms.

A Royal Surprise delivers on the Royalty Reveal storyline where a inconceivably wealthy person or an incognito royal family member escapes lifestyle of luxury to find true love amongst everyday people, just like you and me. Riley is a kind-hearted, enterprising-yet-struggling bookstore owner traveling overseas to South Africa accompanied by her successful real estate developer (and royal prince) boyfriend, Mandla.

Of course, it goes with out saying that within every well-told story there will be conflict. Feeling betrayed and confused by the sudden turn of events upon their arrival in South Africa, Riley and Mandla will need to find out if they are capable of working through these challenges, if their relationship is going to stand the test of time. We're all left wondering- will there be a fairy tale ending for Riley and Mandla?
