Everyone wants to see Prince Henry and Alex Claremont-Diaz!

The whole world is falling for the boys of Red, White & Royal Blue!

The gay romantic comedy about the son of the US president (Taylor Zakhar Perez) and an English prince (Nicholas Galitzine) falling in love was released on Amazon Prime Video earlier this month and is now the number one movie globally on the streamer during its premiere weekend.

Prime Video is also touting the film as one of its top three most-watched romantic comedies of all-time, although it isn’t disclosing what the other two films are.

Not only are Prime Video customers flocking to the film, which taught straight people that gay men can have missionary sex, but new customers are also signing up just to watch it. According to Amazon, they’ve had a “huge surge in new Prime membership signups” due to the film’s release.

“The phenomenal debut of Red, White & Royal Blue is a true testament to the entertaining and inspired storytelling led by the creative minds behind it. Matthew López, Casey McQuiston, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and the entire talented filmmaking team hit it out of the park,” said Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon MGM Studios. “We are so proud of this delightful, heartwarming film and could not be more thrilled with the response from fans–existing and new.”

Directed by López and based on the novel by McQuiston, the movie stars Perez as Alex Claremont-Diaz and Galitzine as Prince Henry, two young men who have held grudges against each other since they first met.

When they cause an international incident at a royal wedding, the two are forced to spend time together, and soon realize they have a lot more in common than they initially thought.

It also stars Clifton Collins Jr., Sarah Shahi, Stephen Fry, Akshay Khanna, and Uma Thurman.
