Centered on Queen Charlotte’s rise to prominence and power, this Bridgerton-verse prequel tells the story of how the young Queen’s marriage to King George sparked both a great love story and a societal shift, creating the world of the Ton inherited by the characters in Bridgerton.
Ironically, we see soon to be Queen Charlotte, discussing how this is a force marriage to the King of England, with the release being only a few days from the coronation of King Charles, who also went through forced marriage, shows the flop on the story and the struggle of what Diana must have gone through as well.
The series introduces a young Charlotte (India Amarteifio), who is only starting to understand her power — and the meaning of love. We meet young Charlotte as she embarks on her life-changing marriage with young King George (Corey Mylchreest) and enters a ton very different from the one seen in Bridgerton. Naturally, a fearless leader like Charlotte is the one spearheading a societal shift that will lead to generations of change in the Bridgerton world.
Although Queen Charlotte is dedicated to unraveling the past, it also give fans a peek into the present-day lives of the Bridgerton coterie. (Well, their 19th-century lives, anyway.) So the series is also a can’t-miss for those thirsty to out-gossip Lady Whistledown come Bridgerton Season 3.
Queen Charlotte is now streaming on Netflix.
