Story:  Sequel to “Royal Family Holiday.” The children Phillip “Flip” Royal (Romeo Miller), a good-looking spiritual guru; Austin Royal (Eric Myrick III), a Washington, D.C. community activist; Kelsey Royal (Chelsea Tavares), a fashion designer’s gopher; and Pamela Royal (Taquilla Whitfield), a hair and nail salon owner; join forces to reunite their parents in time for Christmas. They try every trick in the book – including “playing nice” and setting aside old sibling rivalries – only to learn their mom and dad are enjoying “the single life.” Their plan also goes awry as getting their parents back together ends up taking a back seat to their own personal and professional drama.

Royal Family Holiday

A Royal Family Holiday still

Story:  Royalty in name and mind only, the Royal family led by patriarch Leighton (Richard Lawson) and matriarch Alfreda (Debbi Morgan), kick-off Thanksgiving, with a fake break-up ruse to lure their overly-busy children home for Thanksgiving. Surprises and challenges ensue, including drama with Alfreda’s envious sister Mona Levi (Vivica A. Fox); the revelation of a deep, dark family secret involving Alfreda’s former acquaintance Chivonne Price (Tichina Arnold); and dealings with Leighton’s super-loud, outspoken cousin Nelson Royal (Ricky Harris). Unfortunately, Leighton and Alfreda both play their roles too well as old wounds are re-opened and their carefully planned reunion leads to chaos – and a potentially real break-up.
