In the trailer there's a shot with the queen and the "king". I think they attempted to have them look like Margrethe and Henrik. He sort of resembles Henrik without glasses, but she really doesn't look a whole lot like Margrethe.

Today I went to the movies and a trailer for the "The prince and me " was shown. It kind of annoyed me that the prince and his parents had English accents and name, but remembered that the queen and princes of DK have English accents speaking English. :P . But the thing that was crazy was when the prince's relationship with Page(the girl) it is all of "The sun". I was thinking they could have used the name of a Danish mag like B-B because people can make their own pronouce it. But they at least got the color of the flag right. I wonder what the Danish people and royals are going to feel about it when it is released.

I have only seen the trailer but, just from seeing it I could tell that the movie inaccurately portrays royalty. First of all, as merely the girlfriend of the prince of Denmark, Julia Stiles' character would not be welcomed into the palace. Girlfriends of royal princes are not acknowledged by the king and queen untill the engagement is annouced. We all saw this very recently with Mary Donaldson. I am always interesting in movies involving royalty, however it annoys me when these movie inaccurately portray royalty. If I was a dutch person this might annoy me even more, especially with the crown prince wedding coming up this spring.

I think "the prince and me" looks very cute. i agree that these teen movies don't portray royalty properly though, which is too bad, because if they did the movies would seem that much more realistic. Did anyone else notice in the princess diaries that the queen (julie andrews), was actually just married to the king (who had passed away), but was somehow still "ruling"?? That didn't seem to make much sense to me...oh well, i guess that's hollywood's idea of succession!

Here's a rather spare review of the Prince and Me. It's interesting if just a little juvenile. But it's a good review nonetheless.

Does anyone know when "The Prince and Me" is to be released in Sweden? Or if it is at all to be released here?

Here's a quote from Yahoo! Movies about the film:

"Paige (Stiles), a free-spirited American college student (and motorcycling enthusiast) starting her education at an Indiana university, meets and falls in love with one of her classmates, but what she doesn't know is that he's actually a Danish prince, Frederick (Mably), spending his "gap year" (before having to perform his princely duties) by hiding in America disguised as a regular guy".


So I guess we're up for yet another Hollywood version of Royalty, described in the most inaccurate way (like you've all pointed out above). But who knows, maybe it will be fun to watch anyway?

It's only a movie. The studio doesn't care if the actors have a Danish accent or not. They are not "catering" to a Danish market.

Most American audiences have never heard of the Royal Family of Denmark, and I doubt they will care...unless your a teen; now they will know that there is a real Danish prince and possibly they'll become more interested in the "real" prince of Denmark. It's a fantasy movie, hopefully a good old fashion romantic picture, that is meant to be taken lightly.

Has anyone seen the movie, The Prince and Me? I saw it yesterday (prescreening of it before it opens this friday) and it was a very sweet and romantic movie. The interesting fact about it is that the Prince in the movie is the crown prince of denmark, who is going to ascend the throne someday, but that's about all the similarities there is with the real CP. Also, they actually filmed in Denmark. Here's the link to the official site, if anyone is interested. =)

actually I forgot one more thing, the prince in the movie also falls in love with a commoner...seems like the director based it on real life, no?

ok, I was informed that the movie was actually filmed in Prague and not Denmark... come to think of it..all movies that take place in a European country are filmed in Prague...cheaper to produce I'd guess...just like how it is in Vancouver...it's been portrayed as Seattle, San Francisco, Maine, etc. in movies before.

I know I'm certainly going to see it... I love those kind of movies - and the fact that they've based it on Frederik & Mary (to a certain degree, according to BT.) only makes it more interesting.

There's this long post on it on imdb.com about Danes who certainly don't recognize their country or their royal traditions in it - I can't wait to see it and nitpick.

(Just who the hell came up with calling the king Haraald? There are plenty of other, real scandinavian names that would fit so much better... )

To tie it in with the Danish royal family a bit more, here's a few similarities/differences I noticed about the movie to the real family

1. The queen's casual outfits resemble some that HM wears in real life (Normally when she's on vacation, but still).
2. People actually call "Eddie" Crown Prince a few times (Then resort back to Prince, but, hey, the first few times it was CP&#33.
3. Some of the jewelery (necklaces, brooches) resemble some of the Danish RF's real jewels.
4. The CP has a love of Fast cars
5. The Prince has a boyish look to him. (He reminded me of a cross of Joachim and Frederik).

The differences
1. Names
2. King
3. Appparently Denmark does abdications and coronations, who knew? :)
4. While the necklaces were great, the tiara the queen wears is, well, horrid. They spent all that money on realistic looking jewels, and then give her a rhinestone tiara. The little princess had a better looking one! I'd have loved to see a copy of the Orange-Nassau tiara, or the Emerald set instead.

We're going to watch this movie very soon and are looking forward to it :)

We've seen some stuff about the movie and so, and it sounds great....the only bad part is that not much of the movie is actually Danish - not even recorded here...

To see what the director of The Prince and Me said about what she decided to put in the movie, try this link on the IMDB:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0337697/...403204#7403204.

She had a great interest in Denmark and answers her critics about the different "facts" in the film. Apparently the story was written long before they decided to set it in Denmark. She also talks about how they decided on the Danish accent to use, etc. She did work with a Danish film crew, and made up their uniforms and orders that you see. She also said some of the Danish actors who auditioned for the movie did speak perfect Oxford English, too.

The director also said that she met "the Danish Princess" in a restaurant (last year I think), and it was quite informal. Could she have been referring to Princess Alexandra?

It would be interesting which Danish princess she is refering too. It could as well be Benedikte and or Alexandria, heck how knows, even Mary!! :)

I don't recognize the Danish accent is it there?
