London. Shy, working-class Steven finds solace in beauty. Eighteen years old, he dreams of being a fashion designer.
He’s also gay, maybe – he hasn’t decided yet. There’s a lot Steven isn’t sure about, like whether he hates himself or thinks he’s amazing. When he ends up in hospital after being brutally attacked by his father, he meets Jasmine, an heiress.
Intoxicating, anarchic, fabulous Jasmine. Fuelled by their shared love of fashion, a friendship blossoms and soon, Steven finds himself swept into her hedonistic world, wholly beguiled. However, underneath the glitter and the frivolity, darkness lies.
Devastating, dazzling, queer and radical, Royals is a love story between unlikely friends from completely different worlds. It’s about the power of art to transform lives and the power of families to destroy them. It’s about working out who you are and what you want.
It’s a tale of giddy happiness, crushing lows and, ultimately, the fragility of lives lived too fast.
