Red, White & Royal Blue Review

Today, Prime Video releases its highly-anticipated adaptation of Red, White & Royal Blue.

Red, White & Royal Blue begins with Alex Claremont-Diaz (Taylor Zakhar Pereze), the son of the President of the United States (Uma Thurman), attending the wedding of Prince Phillip (Thomas Flynn), third in line to the British throne. But Alex soon finds himself the centre of attention when his mutual annoyance for Phillip’s brother Henry (Nicholas Galitzine), leads to the pair toppling over the expensive wedding cake.

This purely accidental moment in front of the world’s press sees both sides of the Atlantic needing to do damage control. And so the plan that the White House and Buckingham Palace agree on is for Henry and Alex to look like the best mates to show the world that the American-English relationship is stronger than ever. And just in time for upcoming international manufacturing treaties.

The plan is easier said than done. Alex views Henry as a snobby rich kid while Henry is standoffish towards Alex. But as the PR blitz ramps up and the world sees how close Alex and Henry are, it’s not long before opposites start to attract and a whole new wave of PR attention is on the pair.

Casting is on-point with Pereze and Galitzine both charming in the leading roles, making for a very fun watch.

Adapting Casey McQuiston’s bestselling novel of the same, Matthew López and Ted Malawer expertly bring the story from page to screen, delivering a cheesy but easy rom-com watch.
