Red, White, & Royal Blue: the gay rom-com to watch this summer

Red, White, & Royal Blue is a gay romantic comedy, directed by Tony Award-winning playwright Matthew López and written by him and Ted Malawer.

The movie is an adaptation of the New York Times best-sellingnovel by Casey McQuiston, which follows the story of the first son of the President of the United States of America and the second in line to the British throne, as the two transform their rivalry into a budding romance after a tabloid scandal.

Starring Nicholas Galitzine as Britain’s Prince Henry, Uma Thurman as the President of the United States, and Taylor Zakhar Perez as her son Alex Claremont-Diaz. 

A disastrous and very public altercation between Alex and Prince Henry at a royal event becomes tabloid fodder driving a potential wedge in U.S./British relations at the worst possible time. 

Going into damage control mode, their families force the two rivals into a staged ‘truce.’ But as Alex and Henry’s icy relationship unexpectedly begins to thaw into a tentative friendship, the friction that existed between them sparks something deeper than they ever expected.

Red, White, & Royal Blue is streaming exclusively on Prime Video. Watch a trailer below:
