The new trailer for Red, White & Royal Blue is giving early ’00s political royal rom-com energy that compare to Princess Diaries , First Daughter, What a Girl Wants, and Chasing Liberty — but very much and intentionally queer.
Being the sons of prominent people in power, they are in the international public eye more often than not. They are both good-looking and charismatic. They also have an ongoing feud and despise each other — which we all know makes for great sexual tension.
This feud hasn’t been an issue until a very disastrous and public altercation at a royal event becomes tabloid fodder, driving a potential wedge in U.S./British relations at the worst possible time. For some damage control, they must stage a truce but what starts off as an act turns into something more than a friendship.
Red, White & Royal Blue debuts on on Prime Video on August 11. The movie was co-written by López and Ted Malawer. The movie also stars Clifton Collins Jr., Sarah Shahi, Rachel Hilson, Stephen Fry, Ellie Bamber, Thomas Flynn, Malcolm Atobrah, Akshay Khanna, Sharon D Clarke, Aneesh Sheth, and Juan Castano.
