Queen Charlotte quickly became a fan favorite when she showed up in Bridgerton. She loves Pomeranians, has a short fuse, and is just as sneaky as Lady Whistledown, so it’s not surprising that she’s now the main character within her series, furthermore authored by Shonda Rhimes.

Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story Plot
The official summary of the story says, “This Bridgerton-verse prequel tells the tale of the young Queen’s wedding to King George led to a great love story and a change in society, creating the world of the Ton that the characters in Bridgerton inherited.” The story is based on Queen Charlotte’s ascend to prominence and power.
In the first series, we were told that King George as well as Queen Charlotte’s romantic drama, in which they went against the odds to make the world more equal, was the reason why Bridgerton is colorblind. So, it’s likely that there will be a bigger gap between them before they get together, and race may play a bigger role inside the spin-off than in the main series.
The first episode would be called “Queen to Be,” so we expect that Charlotte as well as her future husband will meet for the first time in the first episode. In a sneak peek of the show, which broadcasted in Sept. 2022, fans saw a young Charlotte who was engaged to a future king she hadn’t even met yet attempting to flee the palace walls.
A man sees her and laughs as she tries to escape by climbing the thorns. He won’t help her, even though she begs him to. He seems to like it more and more as she gets mad at him, but then he tells her that he is the person she is trying to get away from. From that moment on, there are only sparks.
In a press release, Netflix called the spin-off “a limited prequel series about the beginnings of Queen Charlotte. It will focus on Charlotte’s rise to power and her love life as a young woman.” In the spinoff, the stories of youthful Violet Bridgerton as well as Lady Danbury will also be told.
A longer summary says, “This Bridgerton-verse spinoff tells the story of how young Queen’s wedding to King George led to both a great romance and a change in society, creating the globe of the Ton that the protagonists in Bridgerton grew up in.”
Even though Julia Quinn’s Bridgerton books are works of fiction, she was a real Queen Charlotte in Britain in the early 1800s. Even though she doesn’t appear inside the books, showrunner Shonda Complicity decided to add her to the show.
Yet, Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos was the one who asked Rhimes to start writing a spin-off sequence for the monarch… “Ted called me on the phone and asked, “Why don’t we do a show regarding Queen Charlotte? “And will you write it?'” Rhymes asked last year during an interview with Variety.
“I’m crazy about Queen Charlotte, and I frequently call her the Beyoncé of a show. I’m always saying out loud, “God, I love her wigs,” hoping that someone will send me one so I can wear it.”
