Red, White & Royal Blue 2: Confirmation, Cast & Everything We Know

Summary

  • “Red, White & Royal Blue 2” is confirmed to be in the works, following the success of the original movie in 2023.
  • The original stars, Taylor Zakhar Perez and Nicholas Galitzine, will return for “Red, White & Royal Blue 2.”
  • The potential sequel may explore the challenges of Alex and Prince Henry navigating their relationship in the public eye.



Amazon Prime’s Red, White & Royal Blue took the world by storm in 2023 and now Red, White & Royal Blue 2 is in the works. The movie is based on the novel of the same name by Casey McQuiston, which concerns the son of the President of the United States falling for an heir to the British throne. The high-stakes world of international politics isn’t the typical backdrop for an LGBTQ+ romance story, but Red, White & Royal Blue amped up its romantic dramedy by using the stuffiness of politics as the ultimate foil for the heroes’ love story.

Red, White & Royal Blue‘s most romantic moments had audiences swooning, and it quickly became one of the most-watched original movies that Prime Video has ever produced. Anchored by the stellar performances of Taylor Zakhar Perez and Nicholas Galitzine, the movie balanced its over-the-top setting with heartfelt romance. Though aspects of the story were intentionally cheeky, Red, White & Royal Blue added a new layer to LGBTQ+ romance while still staying close to the core tenets of the genre. Now, less than a year later, Red, White & Royal Blue 2 is coming soon.

story could see how living their lives out and in the public eye might come with its own set of conflicts

Much of the original Red, White & Royal Blue story involves the main characters developing feelings for one another and having to hide their relationship, but also how that affects their high-profile families. Red, White & Royal Blue gives Alex and Henry their happy ending, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t more story to tell. The potential Red, White & Royal Blue 2 story could see how living their lives out and in the public eye might come with its own set of conflicts. An established relationship instead of a coming-out story would be refreshing for a queer rom-com.
