What is the Red, White and Royal Blue Movie About?

Get all the details about the Red, White & Royal Blue movie on romance book blog, She Reads Romance Books.

The Red, White and Royal Blue movie is about the unexpected love story between Alex Claremont-Diaz, the First Son of the United States, and a British prince named Prince Henry.

The movie is based on the widely popular debut novel by Casey McQuiston of the same name, Red, White and Royal Blue which earned the award for Best Romance in the 2019 Goodreads Choice Awards.

The Red, White and Royal Blue movie will be perfect for fans who love romance movies and enemies to lovers stories and anyone obsessed with royal life.

If you have not yet had a chance to read this MM romance (though you really, really should!), here is a summary of the novel:

When his mother became President, Alex Claremont-Diaz was promptly cast as the American equivalent of a young royal.

Handsome, charismatic, genius―his image is pure millennial-marketing gold for the White House. There’s only one problem: Alex has a beef with the actual prince, Henry, across the pond.

And when the tabloids get hold of a photo involving an Alex-Henry altercation, U.S./British relations take a turn for the worse.

Heads of family, state, and other handlers devise a plan for damage control: staging a truce between the two rivals.

What at first begins as a fake, Instragramable friendship grows deeper, and more dangerous, than either Alex or Henry could have imagined.

Soon Alex finds himself hurtling into a secret romance with a surprisingly unstuffy Henry that could derail the campaign and upend two nations and begs the question: Can love save the world after all?

Where do we find the courage, and the power, to be the people we are meant to be? And how can we learn to let our true colors shine through?
