The Ton is abuzz as there is much excitement in the air with lots of Bridgerton news. As millions of adoring fans are patiently (or not so patiently!) waiting for Season 3 to drop, a new spin-off show is coming to Netflix this May. Golda Rosheuvel, who plays the beloved Queen Charlotte character, has inspired a new series entirely, according to Shondaland.
Yes, Her Majesty The Queen is getting her own spin-off, and rightfully so, with the success of the original Shondaland series! With her witty remarks and glaring looks, we—along with millions of adoring Bridgerton fans—are left wanting to learn more about the Queen, and Executive Producer/Creator Shonda Rhimes has delivered. The new show, written by Rhimes, will uncover intriguing early backstories and focus on the rise and love life of the fascinating Queen Charlotte and other leading ladies we have come to know and love from the beloved series, including a young Violet Bridgerton and Lady Danbury.
We tuned in during the exclusive live ‘Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story’ virtual sneak peek event from our own tea rooms this morning to meet the cast and see exclusive behind-the-scenes clips.
