Burbank, CA (September 29, 2009) � In this sequel to "The Prince & Me: The Royal Wedding," newlyweds Queen Paige (Kam Heskin) and King Edvard (Chris Geere) try to escape the spotlight by honeymooning in Belavia � amidst ancient castles and glittering snowcapped mountains � but instead end up uncovering a plot against the Danish monarchy, in the television premiere of "The Prince & Me: Holiday Honeymoon," Sunday November 8 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). An encore telecast follows the premiere (10:00 PM PT� 12:00 Midnight ET/PT).
Just as the royal couple are set to board their private plane to paradise, Prince Edvard, aka Eddie, comes up with a new game plan and diverts their destination to Belavia, a snowy underdeveloped country under the protection of the Denmark monarchy. When the two arrive ready to begin their honeymoon, their goal of romance and relaxation is crushed when the couple run into Paige's high school sweetheart, Scott (Adam Croasdell), at their inn, causing Eddie to instantly get jealous. To make matters worse, they meet Oliver Laertes (Joshua Rubin), who is in Belavia to oversee the building of an oil pipeline for the Danish Prime Minister � the construction of which Eddie never approved. Eddie quickly discovers that Prime Minister Pollonius(Todd Jensen) went behind his back to set it up and is attempting to take power from the throne. Before Eddie and Paige know it, the royal couple's relaxing holiday honeymoon turns into a wild race to get the Danish parliament to come to the couple's aid.
