"I will honor his legacy, to be a Crown Prince my family would be proud of."

Archambault Academy is a prestigious boarding school in Saint Aignan-Grandlieu, France. Many elites from all over Europe and other areas send their children there. One thing that makes Archambault special is the fact that it was attended by members of the royal family including Her Majesty as well as the late Crown Prince Philippe.
A is now the crown prince and heir to the French throne. After the loss of his older brother, Philippe, A was caught fighting at party. His mother, the queen of France, enrolls A into the academy as a way to redeem himself and to learn responsibility as the new soon-to-be king. The crown is not something that he is completely interested in. A wants to have freedom and to be able to explore his true self without worrying about royal obligations, but he finds himself tied to it all.
Upon his arrival, A meets B. B is also a student at Archambault Academy, yet unlike his peers, he is a non-resident student who is there on scholarship. Being a kind smart student, B is chosen by the headmaster to show A around the whole academy.
To A, there is just something about B that makes him want to stop and stare for a bit. To B, there is more to A than just being a crown prince, but why does he think this? This is where our story begins, but where will it go from here?
I got some inspiration from watching Young Royals. You don't need to know the show for this, but I do recommend watching it. Obviously this is different since it's taking place in modern-day France and there's a monarchy. Just wanted some forbidden love/secret romance with boarding school/dark academia vibes.
