Everything you need to know.
Bridgerton spin-off Queen Charlotte has proved just as popular as the Netflix's adaptation of Julia Quinn's books.
The six-parter landed on the streamer earlier this month, delving into the story of the titular monarch and King George III, characters who will be very familiar to fans of the period drama.
India Amarteifio (The Tunnel, The Midwich Cuckoos) steps into the slippers of a young Queen Charlotte, while TV newcomer Corey Mylchreest plays King George III.
Like the couples in Bridgerton, the pair have plenty of challengest to face, including a secret mental health disorder. Mylchreest performance is as swoon-worthy as that of his predecessors, Regé-Jean Page and Jonathan Bailey.

What has Corey Mylchreest said about Queen Charlotte?
Speaking about his character King George, Mylchreest said (via Entertainment Tonight): "It was a privilege to be able to play George in general. He is a man, affliction aside, who has a wide spectrum of behaviour, which as an actor is amazing. I think it was brilliant, not only to be able to explore his health and the pain that he individually experiences and the misery that he individually experiences, but also how that affected the main narrative, which is the love story and how their love finds ways—like running water, evade and keep flowing."
When asked by Harpers Bazaar what he enjoyed most about working on the series, the actor said: "The brilliant characters and superb writing. We got to play brilliant characters, and in terms of the scope of the character, we got to explore everything on the human spectrum. It's a privilege.
"But I'd have to say the best thing about working on a series like this is the people. From the crew to the cast, there was so much passion, love, and friendship among everyone."
In an interview with Today, Mylchreest also said he'd received some words of wisdom from Bridgerton stars Regé-Jean Page and Jonathan Bailey, with the former saying: "Anything that's outside out the stuff that will help you between action and cut doesn't exist, and everything that will help you, it does. Let that stuff in, but everything else, just let it slide off you."
