Characters in the flashback scenes

Young Queen Charlotte – India Amarteifio

India Amarteifio plays the young Queen Charlotte, depicting her rise to power and poise – before she becomes the fearless royal.

Betrothed to the mysterious King of England against her will, Charlotte arrives in London only to realise she was not exactly what the royals were expecting.

The British actress has previously starred in Doctor Who and Sex Education, and played one of the daughters of Roz Huntley (Thandie Newton) in Line of Duty season 4.

“India Amarteifio is just brilliant,” series director Tom Verica. “She provides the canvas for someone who’s going to learn the rules and the ways of this world very quickly and use that to her advantage.”

“I had big shoes to fill,” says Amarteifio, “Not only as young Charlotte, because Golda has created an iconic role, but just entering the [series’] sphere itself.”

Young King George – Corey Mylchreest

The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art alum Corey Mylchreest, who’s also appeared in Netflix series The Sandman, plays a young King George.

Handsome, charismatic, and a bit of a mystery, George has always bowed to the restraints placed on him by the crown.

“Working with Corey has been phenomenal,” India Amarteifio.

“He is someone I can trust and go to for honest advice. He’s someone who really, really cares about the job, which comes across in every way in his acting and in our scenes together.”

Young Agatha Danbury – Arsema Thomas

In her television debut, Arsema Thomas plays a young Lady Danbury, who we see as a dutiful wife to Lord Danbury.

Under the thumb of her much older husband, Agatha uses Charlotte’s arrival to find her own way into society.

Lord Danbury – Cyril Nri

Cyril Nri (Cucumber) plays Lord Danbury, Agatha’s husband, with whom she has an incredibly complicated relationship. She’s both repulsed by and loyal to this man, decades her senior.

Coral – Peyvand Sadeghian

Peyvand Sadeghian plays Coral, Agatha Danbury’s loyal, trusty maid.

Young Violet Ledger – Connie Jenkins-Greig

Intelligent and precocious,  young Violet Ledger is a bright young lady with a big heart. She is from a noble family – not yet a Bridgerton or the devoted matriarch we know.

Lady Ledger – Katie Brayben

Katie Brayben plays Lady Ledger, Violet’s narrow-minded mother.

Lord Ledger – Keir Charles

Keir Charles plays Lord Ledger, Violet’s kind and supportive father, who always has her best interests at heart above all else.

Young Brimsley – Sam Clemmett

Sam Clemmett (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, The War Below) plays Queen Charlotte’s trusty butler, Brimsley.

At first, he’s Charlotte’s suffocating shadow, but he eventually becomes a bright spot of loyalty, companionship, and discretion for her.

“He is more than her right hand, he is her stability, her guidance,” says Amarteifio of the queen’s relationship with her ever-present servant.

“Brimsley is the only person in Charlotte’s life who is stable, gives her a voice of reason, and is someone to come home to, really.”

Princess Augusta – Michelle Fairley

Michelle Fairley (Gangs of London) plays Princess Augusta, the de facto head of the monarchy and King George’s very involved mother.

Determined to maintain her family’s power, the Dowager Princess does what it takes to secure her son’s place as monarch amidst a changing, modernising Britain.

Reynolds – Freddie Dennis

Freddie Dennis (The Nevers) portrays King George’s valet, who will do anything for him. Reynolds has been at George’s side for many years and thus not only serves him with complete loyalty, but also feels compelled to protect the king’s secret at all costs.

Lord Bute – Richard Cunningham

Richard Cunningham (The Witcher) plays Lord Bute, councillor to Princess Augusta.

Earl Harcourt – Neil Edmond

Neil Edmond plays Earl Harcourt, another one of the Princess’ councillors.

Prince Adolphus – Tunji Kasim

Tunji Kasim (Nancy Drew) plays Prince Adolphus, Queen Charlotte’s caring brother with only the highest aspirations for his sister.

Royal Doctor Monro – Rob Maloney

Rob Maloney (Casualty) plays the Royal Doctor, Monro, who’s brought in by a desperate Princess Augusta to treat George.
