Where Is Royal Hearts Filmed?
Now before we get into the other details of the movie, let us delve into the main topic of where was Royal hearts filmed? Well, the setting of the movie is in Merania. However, it is a fictional place hence the filming of the movie had to be done somewhere. Now, you might wonder that perhaps they had filmed the movie in Canada. Usually, a maximum of Hallmark movies are shot there. However, exceptions were made for Royal Hearts. The movie was shot in Romania, specifically Bucharest and Transylvania. Romania is a place where it is filled with amazing castles and palaces where the movie could have been shot easily.

The main character, the father, Hank Pavlik (played by James Brolin), is a rancher, but soon enough gets to know that he is the King of Merania.
