Based on Casey McQuiston’s critically acclaimed New York Times best-seller, the original film saw Alex Claremont-Diaz (Taylor Zakhar Perez), the son of the President of the United States (Uma Thurman), and Britain’s Prince Henry (Nicholas Galitzine) have a lot in common: Stunning good looks, undeniable charisma, international popularity … and 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 U.S./British relations at the worst possible time. Going into damage-control mode, their families and 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.

The first film has been praised by audiences and critics alike, currently boasting a “Certified
Fresh” Tomatometer rating and a 93% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes. Fans have also taken to Instagram, supporting the promotional in-world character accounts created from the point of views of Prince Henry and Alex Claremont-Diaz.
