A new 30-second teaser for Amazon Prime’s gay romance Red, White & Royal Blue is here, showcasing more of the film’s cast.
The trailer for the adaptation of Casey McQuiston’s bestseller arrived two weeks ago, after much anticipation.
Following the novel’s plot, the film tells the story of Alex, the son of America’s first female president, and his complicated, budding relationship with Henry, the Prince of England.
Taylor Zakhar Perez and Nicholas Galitzine play Alex and Henry, respectively, with a strong supporting cast behind them.
Though we caught a glimpse of Uma Thurman as Ellen Claremont, the President of the United States of America, in the last trailer, yesterday’s teaser spotlights the full cast of secondary characters.

In a flurry of brief introductions, we meet Clifton Collins Jr. as Alex’s father and Rachel Hilson as Nora, his best friend.
Aneesh Sheth’s Amy, a secret service agent, and Sarah Shahi’s Zarah, deliverer of the iconic “I will Brexit your head off” line, are also properly introduced.
The ‘enemies-to-lovers’ story hits Amazon Prime next month with an R rating from the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), due to “language, some sexual content, and partial nudity.”
Fans celebrated this news on social media, with one Twitter user joking that the “the R rating stands for really horny”, while another noted that the two characters “fuck every time they see each other in the book.”
Red, White & Royal Blue premieres 11 August on Prime Video – watch the first trailer below.
