A fan of new Netflix series Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story has pointed out a glaring error.
The new show is taking the globe by storm and is already a huge hit. However some viewers have pointed out some major inaccuracies.
One fan took to Twitter to point out an inaccuracy in the historical drama – and it involves artwork.
The prequel series focuses on a younger Charlotte played by India Amarteifio, as the story takes place over two separate time periods, 1761 and 1817.
Although the two main characters in the new Netflix show are real, the programme itself has been described as “fiction inspired by fact” – but that hasn’t stopped people from pointing out factual flaws from the show.
In one scene, a young Queen Chatlotte can be seen dancing in a lavish room. Yet the decor of the hall she is in does not make sense, The Mirror reports.
The fan pointed out some of the portraits on the wall were inaccurate and didn’t add up to the time period.
Posting a screenshot, Dr Kimberly Chrisman-Campbell wrote: “These two are adorable, but the portraits in #QueenCharlotte are KILLING me. NONE of those people were even *born* in 1761.
“That is QUEEN VICTORIA. Specifically, her coronation portrait by Sir George Hayter. Her coronation was in 1838, 20 years after Charlotte DIED.
“And that’s her husband, Prince Albert, painted in the robes of the Order of the Garter by Frank Xaver Winterhalter in 1843.”
It wasn’t the only error that slipped through the net in the series, with actors Freddie Dennis, who plays Reynolds, and Sam Clemmett, who plays Brimsley, both revealing that a mistake from filming made it into the final edit.
Clemmett told Digital Spy : “From the perspective of actually filming it, we had weeks and weeks and weeks of dance rehearsals. Dancing isn’t necessarily something that comes easy to all of us. So we were all just trying to drill it.”
“We were so nervous — there’s a particular take [where] one of us messed up the dance, and then we [fell] into a fit of hysterics,” he continued.
“That’s actually in the final episode — [it] made the cut. So watching that moment where we had messed up […] just brought the joy of what that scene is, and what it meant to us.”
The spin-off show’s synopsis reads: “Centred on Queen Charlotte’s rise to prominence and power, this Bridgerton-verse prequel tells the story of how the young Queen’s marriage to King George sparked both a great love story and a societal shift, creating the world of the Ton inherited by the characters in Bridgerton.”
