Henry tells Alex the deeply personal story of his upbringing in this never-before-seen moment from Red, White & Royal Blue.

Tugging at our heartstrings!

Prime Video has released a new deleted scene from Red, White & Royal Blue where Prince Henry (Nicholas Galitzine) tells Alex Claremont-Diaz (Taylor Zakhar Perez) an intimate story about his upbringing as a royal and the reason why he struggled with falling in love.

In this deleted scene, titled “Prince Henry & Alex’s Fireside Chat,” Alex asks Henry about their first night together, when Henry told Alex that he couldn’t let anyone fall in love with him. In response, Henry goes on to tell Alex a story about how he grew up as a prince:

“Once upon a time, there was a young prince who was born in a castle. There had never been a prince quite like him… he was born with his heart on the outside of his body. Whereas the other princes and noble children could withstand the slings and arrows of childhood, this prince felt everything acutely. Everything seemed to touch and threaten his unprotected heart. He didn’t know that he was different, at least at first. His family did, and they grew fearful that the people in the kingdom would see who he really was and turn against him.”

Henry continues, “His grandfather, the king, sent the suit a prince of armor and told him that if he always wore it, nothing would ever happen to him. And so for many, many years, the prince believed that he was safe. And the price he paid for his safety was his freedom. Until he met this devastatingly handsome young peasant boy who was from this faraway land and said the most ghastly things to him. That made him feel truly alive for the first time in his life.”

“And because of this handsome peasant boy, the prince’s armor began to fall away. Piece by piece, until all that was left was the piece of armor protecting his heart,” Henry concludes. “The peasant boy pulled and pulled at this last piece of armor. The prince held it firmly in place with every time the boy made a space between the prince’s honor and his heart. And in that space, the prince’s heart beat freely once again.”

The scene ends with Henry staring at the firepit. It’s unfortunate that this very sweet scene between them didn’t make it onto the final cut of Red, White & Royal Blue, but it’s great that fans still get to see it anyway.

Long live our queer royal couple Henry and Alex!
