In the final moments of Season 1 of Young Royals, Edvin Ryding’s Prince Willhelm broke the fourth wall and stared straight at the camera. It seemed to be a key moment in which Wilhelm became fully aware of all the public attention yet stayed determined to change his life. In the last scene of the finale, Wilhelm apologizes to Simon and says, “I love you,” before driving away and the two boys embrace. Season one dealt with the aftereffects of Wilhelm and Simon’s sex tape, which was released in August. Now that Wilhelm knows who is behind the sex tape incident, the question is how things will continue with August after the betrayal.
