What is the story about?
The story follows Alex after his mother is elected as the first president of the United States. After winning it, he is considered the equivalent of a young royal. Given his charisma and handsome appearance, he has been the poster boy for the White House for millennia.
However, not everything is good. Alex has a long-running quarrel with the young Prince Henry across the pond. A video of their altercation is being leaked to the press, prompting the manipulators to come up with a plan for a truce.
The truce, in the form of a friendship on Instagram, is soon turning into something more. Alex begins to develop feelings for Henry, but this could jeopardize his chances of being re-elected to his mother’s office.
The book instantly became a bestseller in the USA Today and the New York Times. She also won the Goodreads Choice Award for “Best Debut” and “Best Romance of 2019”. That’s not all, because the book still won “Best Book of the Year” by Vogue, Vanity Fair and more.
The film will be produced by Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter of Berlanti / Schechter Films. Michael McGrath, López and McQuiston will serve as executive producers.
Filming began this month in the UK. Once completed, it will be released on Amazon Prime in over 240 countries.
Since the book was a bestseller, there is a lot of hype around the film and people expect a lot from it. Whether it lives up to the hype or not will be obvious only once the film is made and released on Prime. For now, fans are waiting for more news about the movie.
