Who says you can’t have a happily ever after? Well, decades of books, films and TV series have implied that your chances are lowered if you’re queer. But, as we continue to see more LGBTQ+ representation in media (including positive representation), queer characters are finally getting the Cinderella and Frog Prince treatment.
A perfect example of this is Red, White & Royal Blue, Prime Video’s adaptation of Casey McQuiston’s bestselling 2019 romance novel. In this cheeky modern love story, the son of a U.S. President and the “spare” heir of the British royal family are forced to become friends to help the image of their respective nations following a minor scandal. Naturally, their adversarial relationship quickly evolves into a romantic one. Cheesy? Yes, but it’s also so heartwarming (and sexy) that you won’t be able to resist the movie’s endless charm.
