Red, White and Royal Blue review

Yahoo Entertainment's Roxy Simons gives her thoughts on Prime Video's new LGBTQ+ romcom

Video transcript

ROXY SIMONS: Hi, I'm Roxy from Yahoo UK. And this is what I thought of "Red, White and Royal Blue." "Red, White and Royal Blue" is about the love story between the son of the US President and a British prince.


- How's it going?

ROXY SIMONS: I thought it was sweet, swoon-worthy. And I absolutely love the chemistry between Nicholas Galitzine and Taylor Zakhar Perez. In terms of highlights from the film, I think the best moment has to be when Alex and Prince Henry finally kiss because there was so much buildup to it, and it really works well.

The best cameo in the film has to be from Stephen Fry. He plays Prince Henry's homophobic grandfather. And because he is this big foil to the main couple, he allows Prince Henry to have his time to shine. I would give the film 3 out of 5 because I feel even though it is a fun romcom, it does follow a lot of the same trends as other romcoms. So it doesn't stand out from the crowd.

ROXY SIMONS: If you loved "Heartstopper," "Daisy Jones & The Six," and "Young Royals," then you would love "Red, White and Royal Blue." You can watch the film right now on Prime Video. And you can read my review on Yahoo UK.
