Alex Claremont-Diaz and Prince Henry are here and they couldn’t be more perfect! First look photos of Nicholas Galitzine and Taylor Zakhar Perez getting into character on the set of Red, White & Royal Blue dropped, and wow, the casting couldn’t be more perfect.

The movie, set to release via Prime Video on August 11, 2023, is based on a 2019 book of the same name by author Casey McQuiston. The novel quickly made its way on to The New York Times bestseller’s list shortly after its release, with many fans praising its representation of LGBTQ+ characters.

“Alex Claremont-Diaz who, upon his mother’s election as president, is promptly cast as the American equivalent of a young royal,” the film’s longline reads, per a June 2022 report from Deadline. “Handsome, charismatic, brilliant ― his image is pure millennial-marketing gold for the White House. There’s only one problem: Alex has a long-running feud with his royal counterpart across the pond, Prince Henry. And when the tabloids get hold of a photo involving an altercation between the two, U.S./British relations take a turn for the worse.”

It was announced that Nicholas and Taylor were cast as Prince Henry and Alex Claremont-Diaz that same month. Nicholas is known for his role as the prince in Camila Cabello‘s 2021 Cinderella, while Taylor played the role of Marco  in The Kissing Booth franchise.

“It has been a thrill to hand this story over to Berlanti/Schechter, Amazon, and our fearless leader Matthew López and watch them make so many smart, bold, thoughtful choices to bring it to life,” author Casey said in a statement, per Deadline, referring to the film’s director. “This casting is no exception. I absolutely can’t wait to see Taylor and Nicholas on screen as Alex and Henry.”

Fans first got a taste of Nicholas and Taylor as their characters while they filmed the movie in June 2022, when behind-the-scenes photos dropped of the stars on set. A year later, the first official film stills were released.
