Re: Tangentially T-Related: Fictional Swedish Royals ("Young Royals")
It is not as absurd as some fictional series about royalty, or some of the films about fictitious Royal families. I found it well acted and quite touching. The themes are social class and snobbery and whether Royalty follow their head or their heart. Unlike some fiction on Royalty, with made up countries the Prince is meant to belong to the Swedish Royal House.
Yes, Gary, I have watched the whole season. I enjoyed it. But it is quite narrowly forced. It concerns the issues raised as Prince Wilhelm both adjusts to being Crown Prince and to having a gay affair at his new boarding school.
His mother, the Queen (regnant), is more concerned with public opinion that her son's (gay) happiness. His second cousin is villain worthy of an English panto, etc.
Even so, as I said, I enjoyed it.
