Get ready to fall head over heels with Amazon Studios‘ upcoming romantic comedy adaptation of Casey McQuiston’s bestselling novel, “Red, White & Royal Blue.” To whet your appetite, three tantalizing clips have been released, offering a glimpse into the delightful world of Alex Claremont-Diaz, played by Taylor Zakhar Perez, and Prince Henry, portrayed by Nicholas Galitzine. The heartwarming rom-com is set to sweep you off your feet when it premieres exclusively on Prime Video on August 11.
These clips provide a sneak peek into the evolving relationship between Alex and Prince Henry, an unlikely pair who find themselves in an unexpected enemies-to-lovers scenario. The spark that ignites their connection comes after a cake incident, leading to an endearing journey of friendship and love.
“Alex Claremont-Diaz, the son of the President of the United States (Uma Thurman), and Britain’s Prince Henry have a lot in common: Stunning good looks, undeniable charisma, international popularity … and a total disdain for each other,” the synopsis reads. “Separated by an ocean, their long-running feud hasn’t really been an issue, until a disastrous—and very public—altercation 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 and handlers 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.”
Directed and executive produced by Tony winner Matthew López, with a screenplay co-written by Ted Malawer, “Red, White & Royal Blue” is set to be a heartwarming journey that explores the complexities of love and relationships. The film boasts a star-studded cast, including Clifton Collins Jr., Sarah Shahi, Rachel Hilson, Stephen Fry, Uma Thurman, Ellie Bamber, Thomas Flynn, Malcolm Atobrah, Akshay Khanna, Sharon D Clarke, Aneesh Sheth, and Juan Castano.
The film’s production is helmed by an impressive team, with McQuiston, Michael Riley McGrath, and Michael S. Constable serving as executive producers, while Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schecter take on producing duties. Amazon Studios acquired the rights to the novel in 2019, setting the stage for a charming and heartwarming romantic comedy that promises to be a delightful addition to the world of streaming entertainment. Get ready to laugh, swoon, and experience the magic of unexpected love when “Red, White & Royal Blue” premieres exclusively on Prime Video this August 11.
