Bridgerton, Bridgerton, and more Bridgerton. We, and Netflix, just can’t get enough of this romantic universe! There’s so much content coming our way and it’s just such an exciting time to be a fan! Of course, there’s the upcoming third season of the Netflix Original series, we’ve got the Queen Charlotte spinoff, and now there’s an addition to your Julia Quinn novels coming as well!

Before we dive into the new book, be sure you know what to expect in Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story! India Amarteifio will play a Young Queen Charlotte, as Golda Rosheuval reprises her current role. That’s because we’re going to of course see the past, but also some of the present. Corey Mylchreest takes on the role of a Young King George, with James Fleet returning to play King George.

The six-episode limited series centers around the titular character, and the origins of her love story with her king. How did the two meet? How did they fall in love? What was the young royal like when she first took the throne? There’s so much to explore! We’re going to see all of that in the series, as well as a new book!

Queen Charlotte book release date

Get ready to make your way to your favorite book store, or wait (im)patiently at your mailbox! The romance novel, Queen Charlotte, is set to be released on Tuesday, May 9, 2023. The book’s release date comes just days after the spinoff will drop on Netflix, which is Thursday, May 4, 2023.

If you want to guarantee you’ll be able to get your hands on one, the novel is available to pre-order through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Target, and more. Check out the publisher’s website for all the info! Plus, just look at how beautiful that cover is. We’re obsessed!

What is the Queen Charlotte Bridgerton book about?

So what can you expect to learn in from the novel? There’s actually a lot! And thanks to the book’s synopsis, it gives us even more details on what we may expect to see in the series.

The story is set in 1761 where German Princess Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz and a young King George III meet for the first time, and they’re married within hours, per the book synopsis. While it may not have been all romance at the start, the newly crowned queen will find herself falling in love with her husband, who has “secrets with the potential to shake the very foundations of the monarchy.”

This headstrong and independent young woman will have many challenges to face — the complicated politics of court, George’s secrets and him pushing her away as she falls for him, and becoming a symbol of sorts as their marriage creates a societal shift. You know, all in a day’s work for a royal, I guess.

Who wrote the Queen Charlotte book?

The fact that Julia Quinn herself, who is behind the Bridgerton book series that the show is based on, as well as executive producer of the our beloved show, Shonda Rhimes, wrote the book together has us even more excited about the upcoming novel. With this duo spearheading the writing, we know it’s going to be good!
