IN BRIDGERTON, DOES QUEEN CHARLOTTE USE DRUGS?
In Bridgerton, Queen Charlotte does not use drugs. The brown substance in question appears to be snuff, a Regency-era tobacco product that wealthier members of the social scene preferred to snort as a smokeless alternative to pipe tobacco.
Although the Queen snorted it, as many common hard drugs are today, snuff was not as dangerous or addictive as the public was led to believe at first.
The finely ground powder the Queen was snorting was snuff, according to Queen Charlotte actress Golda Rosheuvel, but the real substance on set was a sugar-based substitute that had been made up to look like real tobacco.
IN BRIDGERTON, HOW OLD IS QUEEN CHARLOTTE?
Bridgerton season 1 would have the real King George 74 and Queen Charlotte 68 in 1813, according to this series timeline. Meanwhile, Queen Charlotte was cast much younger than her historical counterpart, with actress Golda Rosheuvel being 50 years old at the time.
Charlotte was born in Germany on May 19, 1744, and is considered by historian Mario De Valdes y Cocom to be a direct descendant of the Portuguese royal house. Although her exact lineage remains a source of contention, it is widely assumed that Queen Charlotte was of mixed race.
