A Dive into History

The series, narrated by Julie Andrews, begins with a disclaimer that it's not a history lesson, yet it draws inspiration from real-life events. Let's explore some of the key moments depicted in the show and separate fact from fiction.

The Biracial Queen

One of the most intriguing aspects of Queen Charlotte's character is her racial background. Born in Germany, she was directly descended from Margarita de Castro y Sousa, the

Black branch of the Portuguese Royal House. While historical records don't definitively confirm her racial heritage, art historians speculate based on portraits that she might have been biracial.

Royal Romance

The series portrays the whirlwind romance between Queen Charlotte and King George III, suggesting they were married on the same day they met. Indeed, George announced his intentions to wed Charlotte in July 1761, and they were married in London on Sept. 8 of the same year. Their love story unfolds amidst the backdrop of royal duties and expectations.

Wedding Traditions

Contrary to modern wedding traditions, Queen Charlotte did not wear a white dress for her wedding. Costume designer Lyn Paolo reveals that Queen Victoria popularized the white wedding gown later. Charlotte and George's wedding marked the beginning of a royal legacy, as they eventually had 15 children together.
