This article discusses the ending of the Netflix film The Royal Treatment and will contain spoilers.

The Royal Treatment begins with Italian hairdresser Isabella, aka Izzy (Laura Marano), as she reads about Prince Thomas (Mena Massoud) coming to New York. Her attention swiftly switches to a small fire that breaks out at her hair salon. With the need for expensive repairs, Izzy has no choice but to take some money from her travel funds.

Meanwhile, whilst living a life of luxury, Prince Thomas struggles to maintain a real conversation as he prepares for his upcoming wedding. Then, after seeing a magazine cover of himself, Prince Thomas decides he is in desperate need of a haircut. Which, strangely, leads him to Izzy’s hair salon. And although the pair of them instantly hit it off, with Izzy even claiming, “you’re not so bad, when you’re not acting like a prince”, she soon returns to her normal life. Albeit only for a short amount of time.

Walter (Cameron Rhodes) returns to the hair salon with an invite for Izzy and her workmates, Lola (Grace Bentley-Tsibuah) and Destiny (Chelsie Preston Crayford) to do the hair and make-up at the wedding in Latvia for $50,000. It’s not smooth sailing, however, as Lola and Destiny’s haircutting skills aren’t good enough. Therefore, they retrain by cutting invisible hair.

Unbeknownst to Izzy, Prince Thomas is miserable and likens his situation to an arranged marriage. To cheer Prince Thomas up, Walter suggests that he follows Izzy into the town of Latvia. As a result, Izzy and Prince Thomas eat and dance the night away. As they bond, Izzy reveals she is a hairdresser as her mother needs her, with Prince Thomas revealing that his mother passed away when he was seven. The night definitely leaves its mark on Prince Thomas, as during the wedding rehearsal, Prince Thomas is unable to take his eyes off Izzy. Even when his bride-to-be, Lauren, discusses her “Purses for Dogs” business idea, Prince Thomas’s focus remains on Izzy.

He shouldn’t worry too much, as Lauren even states to her Mom, Ruth LaMott (Jacque Drew), that she wouldn’t care if the wedding didn’t go ahead. After the local newspaper prints a story that suggests Prince Thomas is having a fling with Izzy, Prince Thomas’s parents force Walter into firing Izzy. After Izzy leaves, a downcast Prince Thomas seemingly decides to go ahead with the wedding, whilst Lola and Destiny move forward with the hair and make-up.

Whilst alone with Prince Thomas, and with his own past heartache still affecting him, Walter tells him not to marry Lauren, but to instead chase after Izzy. Shortly afterward, Prince Thomas tells Lauren that he doesn’t want to marry her. Much to her relief! Back in New York, after her hair salon is burnt down (again), Izzy becomes director of the community center. But The Royal Treatment doesn’t end there as Prince Thomas rides up on a horse. He reveals that the wedding was canceled and they kiss. The movie concludes as Prince Thomas offers Izzy a ride on his horse.
