It’s one of #BookTok’s favorite titles so it’s an understatement that we’re excited to see the announcement of the Red, White And Royal Blue cast to bring Casey McQuiston’s best-selling novel to the small screen.

Per a press release from Prime Video, the premise of the show is as follows: “Alex Claremont-Diaz, the son of the first woman President of the United States, and Britain’s Prince Henry 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 US/British relations at the worst possible time. Going into damage control mode, their powerful families and respective 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. Based on Casey McQuiston’s critically acclaimed New York Times bestseller, Red, White & Royal Blue marks the feature film writing and directing debut of Tony Award-winning playwright Matthew López (The Inheritance).”

Speaking with Variety on June 1, 2022, the author said: “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,” McQuiston said. “This casting is no exception.”

Who’s in the Red, White and Royal Blue cast?

Without further ado, here’s who’s in the main cast for Red, White and Royal Blue. Joining in undisclosed roles are Rachel Hilson, Clifton Collins Jr., Stephen Fry, Sarah Shahi, Ellie Bamber, Aneesh Sheth, Polo Morin, Ahmed Elhaj, Sharon D. Clarke, Malcolm Atobrah, Thomas Flynn, and Akshay Khanna. RWRB author Casey McQuiston praised the cast, saying per Variety: “I absolutely can’t wait to see Taylor and Nicholas on screen as Alex and Henry.”

Red, White and Royal Blue premieres on Prime Video on August 11, 2023.
