Young Royals Season 2 Plot

The plot revolves around the fictional Prince Wilhelm of Sweden (Edvin Ryding), his budding gay romance with a fellow student, Simon Eriksson (Omar Rudberg), and the drama that comes with it. From the newly released clip, the viewers can understand that the next season will expand from breaking up with Simon (Omar Rudberg) to having his sex tape leaked; Prince Wilhelm (Edvin Ryding) was really going through it in Season 1. 

In this first look at the upcoming season, it’s clear that Wilhelm is ready to burn everything to the ground. Winter break is over, and he’s returning to Hillerska to take revenge on August (Malte Gårdinger), his cousin who released the scandalous video.

August is remorseful, but as the video shows, the young prince isn’t taking any apologies. He’s setting out to make his cousin’s life a living hell — and hoping to win back Simon’s trust in the process. Little does he know, however, that he’s about to threaten his own monarchy.

Simon, on the other hand, is ready to move on. He’s hitting the gym and focusing on himself, but will his path be diverted now that Wilhelm is back in the fold? With new friendships, more secrets, and the monarchy in jeopardy, the new season is set to be a whole new journey for everyone.

Young Royals Season 1: What happened in the final episode?

The finale episode, simply titled, Episode 6, was released on July 1, 2021. The episode is directed by Erika Calmeyer and written by Lisa Ambjörn, Lars Beckung, and Sophie Forsman. In the episode, the viewers got to see that Wilhelm feels conflicted about how to handle the aftermath of the leaked video while Simon’s life gets invaded by the press.

The Queen visits Wilhelm and urges him to make a statement denying that he appeared in the video, something Wilhelm does not want to do. Simon’s mother wants to pull him and Sara from Hillerska and send them back to Marieberg for the next school term, something to which Sara objects, wanting to become a resident at Hillerska. Wilhelm issues a statement denying that he is in the video. 

Felice figures out that August leaked the video and tells Wilhelm, who confronts August, feeling betrayed. Wilhelm also tells the Queen, but she reveals that she already knew. Following the Christmas ceremony, Wilhelm hugs Simon and confesses his love, with no declaration of love in return from Simon. Many students see this and begin to whisper. Wilhelm leaves for the holiday break.
