Speaking to and other press, Amarteifio discussed the key difference between Queen Charlotte and Bridgerton, saying: "I think what's really nice about Queen Charlotte is... it gives us the liberty of creating our own characters.

"You guys obviously know Queen Charlotte, King George and we know Lady Danbury, but you don't know their origin story. There's enough time for them to be completely different people and for us to create completely unique characters and then, in time, as is natural in real life, you change, we adapt as we get older."

In an interview with Vogue, she emphasised the fact that Queen Charlotte, while drawing on historical fact, is "definitely not a historical retelling", adding: "So that gave us a lot of freedom."

Amarteifio also revealed which aspects of the story were the most challenging to depict. "The emotional scenes, definitely," she explained. "I'm quite an empathetic person and there are a lot of scenes where Charlotte is really distraught, and with good reason. Having to access that was difficult."
