The character was not originally in the books but the character was added in the show. According to Shonda Rhimes, “It was the best decision”.’
Shonda Rhimes said this about Ted Sarandos in an interview:
“I’ll be blunt: It was when Ted picked up the phone and called me and said, ‘Why aren’t we doing a show about Queen Charlotte? And will you write it?’ I’m very obsessed with Queen Charlotte, and I always call her the Beyoncé of the show,”.I’m constantly saying out loud, ‘God, I love her wigs somehow hoping that somebody will send me one of her wigs so that I can walk around wearing it.”
The show will focus on Queen Charlotte’s story. We will see the origin of the character. The historical figure Queen Charlotte was Queen of Great Brittian. However, it is not confirmed yet if the show’s character is completely based on the Queen. Julia Quinn the writer of the book is glad that she did not write in her books because her character in the show is amazing. People are also curious if the real Queen Charlotte was black or not. One historian says that she was black. However, Julia Quinn shared her thoughts in an interview;
“I don’t think it’s ever going to be proven or disproven, to be honest with you,” Quinn says. “But let’s say she was Black. And what if that was accepted at the time and people acknowledge that, and then she used that position to lift other people of color to higher positions in society. What would society look like?”
Golda Rosheuvel played Queen Charlotte in Netflix’s original “Bridgerton” She revealed during an interview that we will see a lot of historical characters and references in the upcoming show.
