According to the film s plot, per Prime Video, Alex Claremont-Diaz (Taylor Zakhar Perez), the son of the President of the United States (Uma Thurman), and Britain s Prince Henry (Nicholas Galitzine) have a lot in common: stunning good looks, undeniable charisma, international popularity, and a total disdain for each other. Separated by an ocean, their long-running feud hasn t really been an issue, until a disastrous and very public altercation at a royal event becomes tabloid fodder, driving a potential wedge in U.S./British relations at the worst possible time. Going into damage-control mode, their families and handlers force the two rivals into a staged truce. But as Alex and Henry s icy relationship unexpectedly begins to thaw into a tentative friendship, the friction that existed between them sparks something deeper than they ever expected.
Taylor Zakhar Perez and Nicholas Galitzine Forge Instant Bond on Red, White & Royal Blue Set, Leading to Unforgettable Chemistry
Nick and I hit it off right away, says Zakhar Perez. We had our chemistry read on Zoom, and then we went straight into rehearsals on day one. We didn t even have lunch or a Hi, nice to meet you. We just had to trust each other. Galitzine added, Taylor and I have this level of insincerity with each other. We have this public banter with each other, but privately, we re really, really close friends. That s kind of Alex and Henry in a lot of ways, negging each other and pushing each other s buttons. Taylor and I spoke the same language and had the same sense of humor. You need to have a partner in crime to embody these roles, and I think it s so palpable when costars don t have the chemistry [that we do].
