And some more behind-the-scenes photos:

By the way, Peles Castle was also seen in Hallmark’s A Princess for Christmas and Royal Matchmaker. So if it looks familiar to you, that’s why.

Peles Castle is a former summer residence of King Carol I and Queen Elizabeth, and it was designed by German architect Johannes Schultz, House Beautiful reported. You’ll need to take a train to visit, because it’s in the foothills of the Bucegi Mountains. You can book a tour in advance so you don’t miss a thing.

In 2011, Romania Insider reported that despite tourists asking to have weddings in the castle, this was not going to happen. The castle became a museum in 1935 and was closed down in 1975 for renovations until 1990. It’s belonged to Romania’s Royal Family since 2007, but it was rented back to Romania for a time.

The same cast returned for the sequel, except for Amber’s dad. Here’s a look at the cast:

  • Rose McIver – Amber
  • Ben Lamb – Prince Richard
  • Alice Krige: Queen Helena
  • Honor Kneafsey: Princess Emily
  • Sarah Douglas: Mrs. Averill
  • Theo Devaney: Simon
