Why Red, White & Royal Blue’s Nicholas Galitzine Feels ‘Guilt’ Over Gay Roles

As it happens, news broke recently that one of Nicholas Galitzine’s most popular films — and one in which he, notably, plays a queer character — is getting an unexpected sequel. “Red, White & Royal Blue,” which released on Amazon Prime in the summer of 2023, stars Galitzine as Prince Henry, a fictional British royal (and the younger of two brothers, meaning he’s not the direct heir to the throne), who falls in love with the First Son of the United States, Alex Claremont-Diaz (Taylor Zakhar Perez). Obviously, chaos ensues from there as the two try and navigate a relationship while considering the political ramifications of it all, made all the more complicated by the fact that Henry hasn’t come out to his family — or his country — yet.

According to a report in Deadline, both Zakhar Perez and Galitzine will return for a second “Red, White & Royal Blue” film, and Casey McQuiston, who wrote the novel upon which the first film is based, will write the script alongside director Matthew López (also returning). This isn’t totally surprising, as the first film was enormously successful for Amazon, but fans of McQuiston’s original novel are definitely curious about the sequel’s storyline, since the book itself doesn’t have a standalone sequel (just a bonus chapter in a collector’s edition). Still, it’s incredible to know that Galitzine will play Henry again — and so far, 2024 has been a fantastic year for the rising star.
