I’m about to blow your mind for a sec, k? We’re all prepared for Bridgerton season 2 to be ~amaze~ because season 1 was a sexy, dramatic, gossipy delight. We’re not prepared for the second season of the Netflix period drama to include parallels to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. I could legit cry tears of joy because I love Daphne and Simon and I love Meghan and Harry and oh. my. gosh., it’s gonna be so good!!
Adjoa Andoh, who plays Lady Danbury, spilled the deets to Entertainment Tonight. “I really can’t say too much nor would you expect me to, but I guess what we do know absolutely is that they’re married now. It’s a new married life and they have the baby, so there are all the vagaries of what that is like for young people with a new baby,” she explained. “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?”
She continued, “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. 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]?”
Well, for Daphne and Simon’s sake, I hope they have an easier time navigating being new parents than Meghan and Harry. But, like Meghan and Harry, I’m sure they’ll get their happy ending as well!
You love all the deets on Bridgerton. So do we! Let’s overanalyze them together.
