Director brilliantly explains why he doesn’t want it called a ‘gay’ film.

Red, White & Royal Blue is set to be the queer romance film of the year, but its director, Matthew López, has explained why it shouldn’t be described as a gay love story.

Based on the cult queer novel of the same name by American author Casey McQuiston, Red, White & Royal Blue follows the enemies-to-lovers story of Alex Claremont-Diaz (The Kissing Booth 2‘s Taylor Zakhar Perez), and Henry Fox-Mountchristen-Windsor (Cinderella’s Nicholas Galitzine).

After originally hating each other’s guts, the pair fall madly and hotly in love.

There’s just one tiny problem: Alex is the son of the first female president of the US, who is up for re-election, while Henry is a British prince.

Their love is star-crossed in an almost Shakespearean way, as they try to work out whether they can be together without the world finding out.
