‘Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story’ ending explained

Fans of Bridgerton have been treated to an alternate look at the series with Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story. The historical drama series takes place a few decades before the action of the main show and focuses on the rise to power of Queen Charlotte and the early years of her marriage to King George.

Now that the series is wrapped up, we ought to take a look at the ending and how it might impact the main show. Spoiler alert: Throughout the series, Queen Charlotte is concerned for the health of her husband but comes to the conclusion he is still alive. There is also the issue of succession to the throne. We flash forward to the present day to see Charlotte stressing out about who will take her place.

Most of her children are either childless, struggling to conceive, harbour illegitimate children or are in loveless marriages. Eventually, Prince Edward announces that he and his wife are expecting a child. This child will inevitably grow up to become the legendary Queen Victoria I.

A side issue to wrap up is the unhappy marriage of Lady Danbury, who eventually falls for Lord Ledger. She kept the affair with Ledger a secret but kept a crown he made for her as a memory keepsake. Viscountess Violet discovers the affair, and when Lady Danbury realises this, she tries to explain it to Violet, but Violet stops her in her tracks.

So we were treated to a nice bit of backstory with the Netflix show, and in the next proper season of Bridgerton, we may just see how the relationship between Violet Bridgerton and Lady Danbury pans out. We are also unlikely to see the death of King George nor the end of Queen Charlotte just yet.
