It's almost time to watch Red, White and Royal Blue on Prime Video to see the movie version of Casey McQuiston's bestselling LGBTQ romance novel. Finding love is hard enough without throwing global politics, publicity nightmares and coming out into the mix.
Red, White and Royal Blue premieres Friday (Aug. 11) at 12:01 a.m. ET on Prime Video.
Alex Claremont-Diaz (Taylor Zakhar Perez) is the son of the first woman President of the United States (Uma Thurman), while Britain’s Prince Henry (Nicholas Galitzine) is in line for the throne. They're both handsome, charismatic and popular worldwide — and they also hate each other.
When their long-simmering feud gets into the open, it not only threatens to ruin their public images but drive a wedge into U.S./British relations at the worst possible time. As damage control, Alex and Henry are forced into a staged friendship. But over time, it becomes very real — and escalates into love.
Here's everything to know about how to watch Red, White and Royal Blue online. Plus, scroll down for the trailer and cast list.
