What is the plot of Young Royals?
In the first season, Simon decides to leave Wilhelm and date other people, but he cannot forget Wilhelm. In the second season, he accepted to be Wilhelm’s secret lover. Apart from that, Wilhelm decides to tell the world that it was him on the sex tape with Simon and comes clean about his love and his identity.
While it is unclear what the third season will focus on, it will probably show the aftermath of Wilhelm’s decision. The viewers will be excited to see how the young boys will deal with the repercussions of their secret being out. Not only this, but the secret will also impact Wilhelm as the next heir to the royal throne.

Young Royals Season 3 Trailer
Netflix dropped the first look clip from the third season of The Young Royals in October 2023, and fans could not be more excited. In the video, the lovers can be seen at Wilhelm’s luxurious home, and he tells Simon, “I can’t believe that you are here.”
Simon responds to this and says, “Me neither.” Meanwhile, Prince Wilhelm replies, “I just wish it wasn’t for this reason. This isn’t how I dreamed for it to be.”
Recently, Netflix dropped an official clip from Young Royals Season 3 with the video description stating, “Students return to Hillerska, anticipation is in the air, and all eyes are on Wilhelm and Simon now that they are openly together.”
Young Royals gained popularity due to the steamy romance between the main leads and the show’s focus on LGBTQ+-themed stories. Moreover, the final season of this show will likely end with Simon and Wilhelm as a couple. However, we cannot comment on it yet.
