What Is Hallmark’s A Christmas Carousel About?

Ready for a new royal story? What is A Christmas Carousel about? According to the Hallmark press release, Lila and Roy (Stuart Hughes, Orphan Black), are a father and daughter carousel restoration business. Known for their incredible work, they are hired by the royal family of Ancadia.

They need their royal carousel restored. This is a gift for Prince Whitaker’s (Bledsoe) niece. Lila and Whit-the Prince’s nickname-don’t start out getting along. Soon, their shared love for the arts connects them.

Throughout the restoration, they begin to really connect and fall in love. But, Lila doesn’t think she has a future with the charming Prince. She knows he has to fulfill his royal duty, and that is to marry a pre-approved noble woman.

She returns home instead of seeing his engagement at the Christmas Gala. But, could there be some Christmas carousel magic in that that wish made on the carousel’s wishing horse? Is there a chance that a royal and commoner can find a happily ever after?
