The 32-year-old Californian took to Instagram on Wednesday night to share a photo of her atop Calton Hill with a glimpse of the National Monument and Arthur’s Seat in the background and wrote: “And that’s a wrap on Princess Switch 3.

“What a whirlwind. Man everyone worked their asses off. AND stayed safe. Big thanks to @Netflix for taking the extra precautions to keep us on track and bring that new new to your screens.”

The former Disney actress has been in the Capital since mid-December filming for the third installment of the Netflix Christmas film which follows the adventures of Chicagoan baker Stacy and her doppelganger Duchess Margaret as they switch lives. The second film also included a third doppelganger, the meddling cousin of Duchess Margaret, Fiona, who is also played by Hudgens and is expected to return in the third film.

Filming took place at various locations around Edinburgh including the regal Hopetoun House which was turned into a winter wonderland, and Newbattle Abbey College.

During her stay, the actress stayed at the five-star Balmoral Hotel paying around £1,600 per night to stay in the luxurious Glamis Suite with her mum and sister.

She also shone a spotlight on South Queensferry when she shared photos of herself with the iconic Forth Bridge in the background - while donning a bag by local designer Strathberry.

The Princess Switch 3 is expected to be released on Netflix towards Christmas 2021.
