Arsema is decked out in a cream-coloured gown and a beehive wig topped with a tiara for what appears to be a ball. Additionally, she is wearing a diamond necklace.

Agatha, a little older, assists Charlotte in figuring out the social scene and adjusting to her new arranged marriage.
The series’ synopsis, written by showrunner Shonda Rhimes, had previously read: “Centered on Queen Charlotte’s ascent to prominence and power, this Bridgerton-verse prequel states the story of how the young Queen’s getting married to King George sparked both a great love story and a societal shift, creating the Ton world inherited by the characters in Bridgerton.
As Queen Charlotte, Lady Agatha Danbury, and Lady Violet Bridgerton, respectively, actors Golda Rosheuvel, Adjoa Andoh, and Ruth Gemmell also make appearances in the prequel.
Hugh Sachs portrays the old version of the Queen’s secretary, while Sam Clemmett plays the younger Brimsley. The cast is completed by Cyril Nri, Freddie Dennis, Richard Cunningham, Tunji Kasim, Rob Maloney, and Richard Cunningham.
