Queen Charlotte courtesy of NetflixAre you ready to dive into the captivating world of Queen Charlotte? The iconic Bridgerton character has stolen our hearts and is a beloved favorite on the hit Regency-era show! That’s why we’re thrilled that Netflix has decided to bring us a limited series about the royal icon’s backstory.

But wait, is the story based on a book?

The series, set to premiere on Thursday, May 4, 2023, stars an incredible cast including India Amarteifio as Young Queen Charlotte, Golda Rosheuval as Queen Charlotte, Corey Mylchreest as Young King George, Arsema Thomas as Young Agatha Danbury, Adjoa Andoh as Lady Danbury, Connie Jenkins-Greig as Young Violet Ledger, Ruth Gemmell as Lady Violet Bridgerton, and many more.

So, is this exciting new series based on one of Julia Quinn’s Bridgerton novels? As fans of the show already know, the main series revolves around the Bridgerton siblings and their romantic journeys, with each book in the series focusing on a different sibling. For example, season one was based on The Duke and I, which told the story of Daphne and Simon. Season two, on the other hand, followed the eldest Bridgerton sibling, Anthony, in The Viscount Who Loved Me.

But what about Queen Charlotte? Is there a book dedicated to her character? The answer is yes, but it’s not part of the original Bridgerton book series. In fact, the novel, co-written by Julia Quinn and series executive producer Shonda Rhimes, hasn’t even been released yet. Furthermore, Queen Charlotte was not a character in Julia Quinn’s universe but was created solely for the Netflix show. Nonetheless, she has become an integral part of the story!

The upcoming limited series, ‘Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story’, serves as a companion piece to the novel, which will be released just five days after the show’s debut on Tuesday, May 9, 2023. You can visit the publisher’s website for more information on how to pre-order the book.

Get ready to immerse yourself in the enchanting world of Queen Charlotte when the six-episode series drops on Netflix on May 4, 2023, followed by the release of the book, Queen Charlotte, on May 9.
