Hallmark's "Fit for a Prince" an Adorable Cinderella Story, Minus the Odd Ending

Starring:  Natalie Hall and Jonathan Keltz Released:  2021 Summary:  An aspiring fashion designer is the talent behind a high-profile designer, but she longs to have her own business.  Hired to dress ladies of a wealthy family hosting an upcoming charity ball, Cindy's life takes an unexpected turn when Prince Ronan becomes smitten with her and takes note of her talent for design.   Image:  Crown Media   A Modern Cinderella Story Fit for a Prince  was written by T. Booker James, who did an excellent job in putting a fun spin on an old fairytale.

When Elizabeth Hall (Erin Krakow) returns to Echo Beach for her engagement party, hosted by George's mom, she questions whether or not marrying George (Giles Panton) might be a mistake.
