Secret Society of Second-Born Royals follows Sam, a rebellious teenage royal.  She unknowingly develops superpowers from a genetic trait attributed only to second-borns of royal lineage. Sam constantly questions what it means to be royal.  Sam wants to create her own legacy. Unlike Sam’s picture-perfect older sister Eleanor, Sam would rather ditch a royal engagement for a wild night out.  Fed up with her daughter’s misbehaviour, Queen Catherine sends Sam to a summer boarding school.

Sam and four other second-born royals (Tuma, Roxana, January, and Matteo) discover they have unique super-human abilities. They are invited to join a secret society with a longstanding tradition of covertly keeping the peace. With a new sense of purpose and a little help from their Secret Society instructor James, Sam and her fellow royal recruits must learn to harness their newfound powers and work together as a team before they can save the world.
