India Amarteifio Will Play Young Queen Charlotte In the Bridgerton Prequel
Since the series will focus primarily on young Queen Charlotte, it would be remiss of us to not share the beguiling character played by India Amarteifio for the eight-part-series.
“This Bridgerton-verse prequel tells the story of 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,” the streamer’s official description revealed.
“Charlotte arrives in London betrothed to the king of England against her will, only to realise that the royal family isn’t what she expects.
“She quickly begins learning how to navigate her unpredictable husband, the ‘ton and the palace, on her way to becoming one of Europe’s most unforgettable monarchs.”
The insanely talented Golda Rosheuvel will also reprise her role and is likely to appear in a flash-forward format.

Relative newcomer Arsema Thomas will play the younger Danbury — whose older version is portrayed by the hugely popular Adjoa Andoh in the original show.
According to Netflix, the description of Lady Danbury reads: “With keen knowledge of the once divided social scene and the intricacies of marriage, Agatha becomes a guiding light for the new Queen, all while finding her own voice and power.”
Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story is set to be released on May 4, 2023, only on Netflix.
