The Princess Switch 2: Switched Again has landed on Netflix but where was it filmed? Does the movie share its filming locations with 2018’s original?

With November now in full swing, more and more festive films and TV series are appearing on streaming services such as Netflix.

The Princess Switch 2: Switched Again is the latest Christmas film to release on Netflix and is the sequel to 2018’s much-loved loved original.

Things are different this time around as not only does Vanessa Hudgens play three characters in this film rather than two, the movie itself was also filmed in a different location to 2018’s original.

But just where was The Princess Switch 2: Switched Again filmed?

The Princess Switch 2: Switched Again on Netflix

The Princess Switch 2: Switched Again glides onto Netflix on November 19th, 2020.

The festive film is a sequel to 2018’s The Princess Switch and continues the stories of humble baker, Stacy DeNovo, and the affluent Duchess of Montenaro, Margaret Delacourt, both played by Vanessa Hudgens.

In this instalment, the two lookalikes trade places once again as Margaret looks to overcome a rough patch with Stacy’s friend Kevin and a new threat to Belgravia’s throne emerges.


Where was The Princess Switch 2 filmed?

  • The Princess Switch 2: Switched Again was filmed in Scotland, specifically Edinburgh and Glasgow.

Filming in Edinburgh took place between December 2019 and January 2020 according to the Edinburgh News.

Locations used in and around the city include:

Parliament Square in the Old Town near the Royal Mile which was used to create the Christmas market scene.

Edinburgh’s Gateway train station which was used for the film’s airport scenes.

Hopetoun House at South Queensferry to the west of Edinburgh, near the Forth Bridge, was used to recreate the stunning Montenaro Castle in the second film.

Stacy’s Sweets and Treats bakery was actually filmed at Mimi’s Bakehouse in Leith just to the north of Edinburgh city centre and is an award-winning café and bakery.

Meanwhile in Glasgow, the city’s cathedral was used for the film’s ceremony scene.


Different filming locations to 2018’s The Princess Switch

Strangely, the second Princess Switch film actually used different filming locations to its 2018 predecessor.

Instead of Scotland, the original Princess Switch movie was actually filmed in Romania with Carei’s Karolyi Castle playing host to Montenaro Castle instead of Hopetoun House as it is in the sequel.

The Princess Switch 2: Switched Again is available to stream on Netflix from November 19th, 2020.
