Alex: Stop. You're enjoying this too much.

Henry: I'm enjoying it the perfect amount.

(From Alex's speech...)

Alex: Every person who bears a legacy makes the choice of a partner with whom they will share it, whom the American people will hold beside them in hearts and memories and history books. America: He is my choice.

(She throws Henry and thumbs-up as door closes behind them.)

Catherine: I'm sorry, Henry. I've failed you. I've failed all of you. You needed your mum, and I wasn't there.

And I swear on my life, and Arthur's, I will take you off the throne before I will let them feel the things you made me feel.

Catherine (to Queen): We can have a real legacy here, of hope, and love, and change.

Catherine: Perverse to them or perverse to you? We haven't even gotten a chance yet to see how people will react.

Queen: I have been serving this country for forty-seven years, Catherine. I believe I know its heart by now. As I have told you since you were a little girl, you must remove your head from the clouds—

Bea: Oh, will you all shut up for a second? Look.

(She shows the news on tablet - worldwide support and rallies for Henry and Alex)

Synopsis / Summary

First Son Alex Claremont-Diaz is the closest thing to a prince this side of the Atlantic. With his intrepid sister and the Veep’s genius granddaughter, they’re the White House Trio, a beautiful millennial marketing strategy for his mother, President Ellen Claremont. International socialite duties do have downsides—namely, when photos of a confrontation with his longtime nemesis Prince Henry at a royal wedding leak to the tabloids and threaten American/British relations. The plan for damage control: staging a fake friendship between the First Son and the Prince.

As President Claremont kicks off her reelection bid, Alex finds himself hurtling into a secret relationship with Henry that could derail the campaign and upend two nations. What is worth the sacrifice? How do you do all the good you can do? And, most importantly, how will history remember you? (Goodreads)
