What is Red, White and Royal Blue similar to?
The novel's author Casey McQuiston previously opened up about her inspirations behind the film – so if you like any of these, the chances are that you'll enjoy the movie! Chatting to Los Angeles Public Library, she explained: "RWRB was inspired by so many of my favourite things - Pride & Prejudice, Veep, Parks & Recreation, Chasing Liberty, The West Wing, first family memoirs, the list goes on.
"The idea for this book came to me while I was following the 2016 presidential election and reading A Woman in Charge by Carl Bernstein and The Royal We by Heather Cocks & Jessica Morgan at the same time. I was fascinated by the worlds of both of those books, so I wanted to do something fun inside them on the backdrop of an intense election year."
