Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story

Hello, My Movievaures ! I hope you had a great week and had the chance to review my previous article from last Sunday. Today, I wanted to share my thoughts on Bridgerton’s latest story based on Queen Charlotte‘s youngest life. Before getting into details, let’s get to the non-spoilers part:

This prequel spin-off focuses on young Charlotte as she is betrothed against her will to King George. She is forced to leave her home and face scrutiny from everyone at the court as she will become queen of England. As miserable as she believes she will be for the rest of her life, she will find love and empowerment where she expects the least.

Another Shondaland success, Queen Charlotte is not a masterpiece, yet it manages to captivate and entertain so that you become pretty obsessed with these stories. Just as its predecessor, Bridgerton with already two seasons, Queen Charlotte is centered around an over-complicated and passionate love story.

There are some attempts to address other topics, especially around feminism and racism, typically found during that period of time. But let’s face it, more than a political agenda, this show is here to entertain the spectator with drama and some strong, sometimes annoying characters.

Some of you might disagree and that is okay, but I will never see Bridgerton or actually any Shondaland content as a good and faithful portrayal of social injustices. It utilizes some of these topics to give more profoundness to the characters, but it doesn’t condemn as much as some people pretend on the Internet.

In short, Queen Charlotte is another entertaining drama that will get you addicted the short time you’ll binge watch it and later on forget about it. None of the less, let’s get something straight, this is a fictional period drama and not a documentary about the real Queen Charlotte’s life, so I truly hope you’ll not get offended because the characters don’t look like the real ones. With that, this is all my MOVIEVAURES. I’ll see you next week for a new article, and don’t forget to follow me on Instagram for more!
