New Hallmark movie

In A Not So Royal Christmas Brooke D’Orsay stars as Charlotte, a London-based tabloid journalist who is assigned to interview the reclusive Count of Sorhagen in Nordin, Scandinavia. While visiting the palace, she runs into a groundskeeper (played by Will Kemp) she believes to be the count. She asks him for an interview and an eavesdropping member of the Royal Advisory Council tells the groundskeeper to keep up the ruse and grant the interview.

After giving Charlotte a behind-the-scenes look at the country’s annual Yuletide Ball, the groundskeeper raises a few royal eyebrows when he breaks centuries-old traditions. Things only get more complicated when a photo of the real count is leaked to the press.
