Fit for a Prince Filming Locations
Hallmark’s ‘Fit for a Prince’ is shot entirely in Canada and specifically in Ontario. The shooting was completed within 12 days in August 2020. Let us now inquire into further details about the filming locations.
The film was exclusively filmed in the Canadian capital city of Ottawa. The principal shoot was done in Fairmont Chateau Laurier, a luxury hotel in the heart of the city of Ottawa with medieval architecture. The hotel served as the location of the ball and home to the Hamiltons in the film.
While the narrative of the film suggests that the gala event takes place in Philadelphia, the producers found it easier to shoot the scenes at a more accessible location. And as Hallmark films often use captivating locations in Canada as the premises of their films, the castle-like hotel served as an ideal location for the royal drama.
Fit for a Prince Cast
The romance comedy features Jonathan Keltz (‘Reign’) and Natalie Hall (‘You’re Bacon Me Crazy’) in lead roles. Keltz takes up the role of the idealist Prince Ronan and popular TV-movie star Natalie plays the role of eccentric and talented designer Cindy. Rebecca Lamarche essays the character of Brooke Hamilton, a privileged socialite and the head of the family that hosts the ball, while Ish Morris appears as Cindy’s co-worker Reggie.
Moreover, Paris Jefferson (‘Departure’) takes up the comic role of the prolific fashion designer Rebecca Raslyn, and Melinda Michael plays the character of Julia, Ronan’s intended date for the event. In other minor roles, we shall see Tanya Clarke as Gloria and Mary Long as Virginia.
