Some shows are literally like a fanfiction come to life, and we say that in the best possible way, okay? No knocking fanfiction around here. We love fanfiction. We’ve talked extensively about how much.
But yeah, some shows …pure fanfic. And yet, sometimes, when it comes to foreign language shows, we just don’t pay enough attention, even when we should. Young Royals looks just like one of those shows we should absolutely be paying attention to. I mean, the monarchy has its appeal, no one living in the Harry and Meghan era can deny that. And we’re suckers for romance over duty storylines, what can we say?
When Prince Wilhelm (Edvin Ryding) arrives at the prestigious boarding school Hillerska he finally gets an opportunity to explore his true self and find out what kind of life he really wants. Wilhelm starts dreaming of a future filled with freedom and unconditional love far away from the royal obligations – but when he unexpectedly becomes next in line for the throne his dilemma is heightened as he has to make a choice. Love or duty. A young prince and one huge dilemma – love or duty?
Young Royals streams worldwide on July 1.
