What the press thinks …

According to Purebreak

Young Royals took the best of teenage series to tell the story of Prince Wilhelm and put forward a clever and moving LGBTQ + storyline. Filled with tenderness and deeply intimate, it will make you forget all the series of the genre that you have seen recently. A real favorite. 5/5

According to LCI

Young Royals plays on this clash between love and duty already seen and reviewed. So yes, the whole is predictable but deeply touching. We vibrate for some of his characters as much as we want to slap others. Aimed at a teenage audience, the series is ultimately intended for everyone. A program from the cold that really warms the heart. 4.5 / 5

According to Têtu

Contrary to the hypersexual teenagers of the Elite series, Netflix offers a brand new fiction calibrated for a teenage audience. Sincere in both its photography and its screenplay, Young Royals is an unmissable success.

According to Melty

The series also explores recurring themes in teen dramas, such as family pressure or the issue of coming out, although it approaches them with sincerity. The cast has a lot to do with it, both in its interpretation and in the choice of real teenagers to play the characters. 4/5

According to Vanity Fair

This uninhibiting bias does not totally save the series which, by focusing on its flagship couple, forgets to develop its gallery of secondary characters. 3.5 / 5

According to Télérama

Not very talkative and centered on the intimate, the series created by Lisa Ambjörn skilfully avoids the candy atmosphere of fictions on the monarchy and the flashy romcoms for adults. But if the proposal of this first season is quite new – the very slow tempo and the rather sober staging make it an almost indie object -, we must however ignore the scriptwriting deficiencies and a main plot that skates a little. 3/5
