Netflix 'Bridgerton' gets seal of approval from Queen Camilla

Queen Camilla admitted to watching Bridgerton during a recent outing with King Charles.

The Queen Consort stepped out with the 75-year-old monarch at the 2024 Chelsea Flower Show in London on Monday, May 20.

She received a special tour of a Bridgerton-inspired garden sponsored by Netflix and designed by Holly Johnson.

It is inspired by Nicola Coughlan’s character, Penelope Featherington.

Royal reporter Rebecca English took to X, formerly Twitter, to shares tid and bits from the royal pair’s appearance.

Camilla shared, “I watched the first lot,” referring to the series’ seasone one, as she was ushered through a stone arch into the secluded garden.

The Bridgerton Garden at the Chelsea Flower Show is designed to “reflect Penelope’s personal journey,” according to the Royal Horticultural Society, which organized the event. “The garden’s initial focus is a moongate which leads to an ornate water feature and sunken seating area in the heart of the garden.”

“A shaded space down one half of the garden alludes to themes of mystery, turmoil and defiance; layers of groundcover, ferns and ivy are intended to represent a woven network of secrets,” the description on the RHS website read. 

“In contrast, the other half of the garden graduates to a brighter palette of sophisticated colors. This ‘full bloom’ effect is symbolic of Penelope’s embracing of her true self and coming into the light.”
