What is the Queen Charlotte 'Bridgerton' prequel release date?

In July 2022, Shonda Rimes and author Julia Quinn announced they would collaborate on an all-new novel in the Bridgerton series based on the early life of young Queen Charlotte. Around the same time, Netflix announced a prequel series television show about Queen Charlotte would be released in the next year, titled, Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story. Both the book and the show will release on the same day, per a press release from Avon Books at HarperCollins.

Now, the first photo of actress India Amarteifio as Young Queen Charlotte has been released thanks to Netflix's TUDUM event on Sept. 24, and we couldn't be any more excited!

What is the plot of 'Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story'?

Both the book and the show will likely follow real historical events, because Queen Charlotte's character was inspired by the real Queen Charlotte. The book's plot, according to a release from Deadline, suggests that the show could also follow "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."

Descriptions of the characters for the show also hint at social change. Historically speaking, Charlotte married George III after moving from Germany, speaking very little English and generally not knowing the ways of British court. This puts her at odds with George's mother, Dowager Princess Augusta, but fans will have to wait and see how that unfolds onscreen.

In the meantime, Seasons 1 and 2 of Bridgerton are available for streaming on Netflix.
