"Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story" is the first spinoff of the hit Netflix series "Bridgerton."
While it is mostly set before "Bridgerton," there are a few key scenes set between seasons two and three.
Here is what the ending of "Queen Charlotte" could mean for "Bridgerton" season three.
Queen Charlotte has succeeded in her mission to produce a royal heir.
In "Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story," the older Charlotte (Golda Rosheuvel) is fixated on her children getting married and securing an heir to the throne.
In the first episode, Charlotte's eldest son, Prince George (Ryan Gage), loses his daughter, meaning there is currently no legitimate heir to the throne after him.
In the series finale, Charlotte's son Edward (Jack Michael Stacey) and daughter-in-law Victoria (Florence Dobson) tell the Queen that they are expecting their first child.
Charlotte is more sentimental in her response to them, which could mean that the queen will become more open and kinder to those around her in "Bridgerton" season three.
King George is able to connect with Queen Charlotte.
While we do not see much of the older King George (James Fleet) in "Queen Charlotte," the series delves into the king's history with his illness in the younger timeline.
While the young King George's (Corey Mylchreest) illness is never diagnosed, it is portrayed as a form of mental illness.
As George got older, his health appears to have deteriorated more, which explains why Charlotte and George seem so separate from each other in the first two seasons of "Bridgerton."
However, at the end of "Queen Charlotte," Charlotte (Rosheuvel) comes to George (Fleet) to tell him that they're expecting a granddaughter, and the pair are finally able to bond in the later timeline.
This could mean that King George is more present in some scenes in "Bridgerton" season three.
Brimsley appears to be single again.
Brimsley (Hugh Sachs), Queen Charlotte's chief secretary, also receives more of a backstory in "Queen Charlotte."
We learn that Brimsley has been serving the queen since she arrived in England on the day of her marriage, which is probably why they are so close.
It is also revealed in "Queen Charlotte" that Brimsley is gay and, in the past timeline, he has a secret romantic relationship with King George's chief secretary, Reynolds.
The series never shows what happened to Reynolds in the later timeline but it is implied that they are no longer together.
Hopefully, there is more clarity in "Bridgerton" season three.
Lady Agatha Danbury reminisces about her former husband and previous lovers.
In "Bridgerton," Lady Danbury (Adjoa Andoh) has always been seen as a widow and has not revealed much about her history.
In the past timeline, we see young Agatha (Arsema Thomas) rise to her position, befriend the queen, lose her husband, Herman Danbury (Cyril Nri), whom she never loved, and have love affairs with Lord Ledger (Keir Charles), Violet Bridgerton's father, and Adolphus (Tunji Kasim), Charlotte's brother.
In the later timeline, Lady Danbury (Andoh) reminisces about her relationship with her husband by visiting their old house together, as well as her affair with Lord Ledger by rediscovering an old birthday hat he gave her.
Agatha also deepens her relationship with Violet Bridgerton (Ruth Gemmell) by opening up to her about her past.
This means the pair will hopefully be closer together in season three.
Viscountess Violet Bridgerton fixes her relationship with Lady Danbury.
In the later timeline in "Queen Charlotte," Violet is mourning the death of her former husband and starting to have feelings about men again.
Violet opens up about this to Lady Danbury and while there are some fights between them due to miscommunication, Agatha provides a lot of wisdom to her.
However, in the season finale, Violet sees the birthday hat that her father gave to Lady Danbury and deduces that her friend may have had some sort of affair with her dad.
While Lady Danbury never openly admits to it, she and Violet seem to reconcile by the end of the episode.
Due to Violet's admission that she wants to try and find love again, the Bridgerton matriarch could have her own love story in "Bridgerton" season three.
