Bridgerton season two may or may not be filming quite yet, but we already have info on what the new season will cover and how it will include some modern royal drama in its storyline.
Adjoa Andoh, who plays Lady Danbury on the show, spoke to Entertainment Tonight on what’s to come for newlyweds Simon and Daphne and how it will resemble the current events surrounding Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
As fans know, season two of the show will see the Duke and Duchess of Hastings married with a new baby. “There are all the vagaries of what that is like for young people with a new baby,” Adjoa said. “I mean Harry and Meghan, what’s it like when you have a new baby? How does it affect you when [you are] a young couple with a new baby?”
Meghan and Harry have been at the center of numerous controversies and dramas involving their respective families and it sounds like Simon and Daphne may face a similar dilemma.
“I just think we’re going to see how Phoebe and Rege’s characters, Daphne and Simon, navigate being in love, very in lust still, but with a new baby in their lives,” Adjoa said. “Having to navigate and negotiate that between each other, between their families and between their wider social circles. Yeah, it’s going to be interesting…[And with Simon], how do you father when you haven’t even fathered [or had a father]?”
As if I wasn’t already beyond excited for this new season, now I’m not sure I will be able to wait! I may just have to rewatch season one to hold…
