After being asked whether or not there would be a second film, Matthew enthusiastically confirmed the news to a crowd of screaming fans.


Is There More To Alex & Henry’s Story?

Yes! In October 2022, Casey McQuiston published a new chapter that was part of a Red, White & Royal Blue collector’s edition. The epilogue, told through Henry’s perspective, picks up 7 years after the events of Red, White & Royal Blue.

Over the course of the chapter, readers learn what Alex and Henry have been up to. Alex and Henry are engaged and planning on getting married. They’re living in a brownstone in Brooklyn that Henry bought after he abdicated from his role in the royal family.

Alex has begun to wrestle over whether or not he really wants to be a hot-shot lawyer for the rest of his career. In time, Alex and Henry decide they want a simple life together out of the spotlight. They decide to move to Austin, Alex’s hometown, at the end of the chapter.

Casey had clearly been mulling over the next chapter of Alex and Henry’s love story for a few years. “Anything’s possible,” the author told Hello! about a sequel to their book in 2019. “I will say I have plenty of ideas for stories set in this world and would love the chance to explore one of them someday. I would be surprised if you’ve seen the last of Alex and Henry.”

When asked about a movie sequel, director Matthew López told TVGuide.com, “Let’s get this thing open first. Then I would need to talk to Casey, and both Taylor and Nick would need to be game. But if we are so lucky as to have people want more, then we would be fools not to at least have a conversation.”

What Happened at the End Of The Red, White & Royal Blue Movie?

The ending of the Red, White & Royal Blue movie mirrors what happens in the book. The final minutes of the movie take place on election night. Henry is by Alex’s side as President Claremont’s entire team awaits the results of the election. It all comes down to Texas, and Alex’s mom is able to flip Texas and win the election. Henry proudly joins Alex on stage for President Claremont’s victory speech, their love on full display to the world.

After the election night madness is over, Alex and Henry go to Alex’s childhood home in Austin. Alex shows Henry the home he grew up in, using the key he gave Henry to wear around his neck.

How can we not see Alex and Henry living happily ever after?
