Crown for Christmas

Synopsis: Allie Evans is a maid who just lost her job at a hotel for not getting a client's room prepared in time. She is then hired by a man named Fergus (who is working for a hotel patron that overheard what happened to her) where he invites her to the European country of Winshire to work as a governess for his employer. Upon arrival, Allie discovers that Fergus' boss is King Maximillian and meets his daughter Theodora who had been terrorizing other authority figures since the untimely death of her mother the Queen of Winshire. As Allie bonds with Theodora while getting acquainted to the other servants and Chancellor Riggs, she learns that King Maximillian is scheduled to be wed to Countess Celia.

Break a leg!



Your car's ready, sir.

I think I've left my watch

in the room.

Your father's watch?

I'll get it for you, sir.

Why hasn't this been done?

The room is still a mess.

I'm sorry.

I need another 15 minutes.

20 minutes tops.

Leslie Millicent-Caroll

has been waiting downstairs

for nearly half an hour.

Do you know who she is?

Someone with

three first names?

Ohh! She writes the hotel review

for the Times,

and she asked

for an early check-in.

- I'm sorry.

- Leave your keys.

You can pick up your check


You're firing me?

A week before Christmas.

No. I'm firing

you and your sister

a week before Christmas.

Here. Someone left a watch

on the dresser.

I just feel terrible.

This is all my fault.

- We'll get something else.

- During the holidays?

We'll figure it out.

Hey, sis. This is

Mr. Fergus McDuffin.

"Fergus" will suffice.

If this is about

all the overdue bills...

- I beg your pardon?

- He's a butler from...


We're a sovereign nation

near Luxembourg.

My employer is aware

of your untimely dismissal

from the hotel.

In the spirit of Christmas

and for returning his watch,

he'd like to give you this.

Oh, wow! $5,000!

Thank you, but as much

as we could use this,

we can't accept.

- Yes, we can.

- It's too much.

But thank you anyway.

Well, I have to say,

I find that quite...

- Ridiculous?

- Admirable.

Forgive me for asking,

but, um...

is that mulligan stew

I smell?

- You know it?

- Know it?

Everything in the kitchen...

Plus peas.

I haven't had it

since I was a boy.

Would you like

to join us for dinner?

So what do you think?

Even better than I remembered.

Allie can make cardboard

taste good.

And we have.

Your parents raised you well.
