The third season of Young Royals is out and fans are going crazy.

But the final season is just that, the final. No more stories about Wilhelm, Simon, August and the other characters. In the last episode of the extremely popular TV series, they left Hillerska Boarding School and headed towards an unknown future.

It seems like the cast is having their bitter sweet moments too. Edvin Ryding, who played Prince Wilhelm, wrote a moving tribute to the show and his fans in a post on Instagram.

To the show’s creator:

“Lisa Ambjörn, thank you for writing Wille. It’s been the privilege of a lifetime”.

-These characters are forever.

“And my castmates. I love you. You taught me the most. Getting to work and be inspired by you everyday has been the gift of a lifetime. We made history and we did it together. We might not get to work together again everybody at the same time. But people better BELIEVE that they haven’t seen the last of any of us”.

-He’s yours. I know you’ll take good care of him.

“Lastly, our audience. Words aren’t enough to describe the amount of love you’ve given us, or to describe how grateful we all are. You are majestic, historical, inspiring, loving, caring and the core of this story. It wouldn’t be what it is without all of you, so thank YOU for giving us this. Never stop fighting for love”.

And then, Ryding is letting his character, Wille, out into the world…

“These characters are forever, and thanks to you i feel 100% confident in letting Wille go. He’s yours. I know you’ll take good care of him. Young Royals Forever.”

Thank you, Edvin. The end of a revolution…
