7 Major Differences Between the “Queen Charlotte” Novel and TV Show
Excellent news, gentle readers! If you are, in fact, a reader – and not just a viewer – of the Bridgerton universe, you’ll be delighted that there is a book version of the “Queen Charlotte” miniseries. The novel is penned by original Bridgerton author Julia Quinn and Shonda Rhimes, the writer-producer behind the Netflix adaptation, and it gives us even more juicy details on the love story that started it all, between King George III and Queen Charlotte.
Of course, a book and a TV show are two very different types of storytelling, so it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that the book is a little different from the version you’ve already watched on Netflix. The book dives deeper into some of our favorite characters, revealing more about how their stories played out when the camera was elsewhere (hi, Brimsley!), while other storylines are glossed over on the page but made a big splash on the small screen. It’s a different perspective that expands the “Queen Charlotte” universe even further and lets us dive deeper into what these characters are really thinking and feeling.
If you’ve already read the book – or if you don’t mind some spoilers – here are a few of the biggest differences you may have noticed between the book and TV versions of “Queen Charlotte.”
