The first and second season of Bridgerton has shown us Lady Danbury (played by Adjoa Andoh), the one in charge of getting the best partners for the different women of high society. But, as the Netflix series is based on Julia Quinn’s best-selling book series, each of the installments has a love story, however, there is a story that the drama will surely cover and it has to do with the past of Danbury Books Spoiler Alert!
During the first season of Bridgerton, viewers saw Lady Danbury play an important role in Simon’s (Regé-Jean Page) past, as she was the young man’s only defender when he lost his mother as a child. Indeed, in Simon’s flashbacks, Danbury is seen standing up to Lord Hastings to ensure Simon’s childhood education and care.
Bridgerton’s second season again sees Lady Danbury as an essential part of the plot, as a patron to the young women of the Sharma family, allowing Anthony (Jonathan Bailey) to meet and fall in love with Sharma’s older sister, Kate ( Simon Ashley). However, the reality is that the character is very different in the book version of Julia Quinn.
Her depiction on the show as a childless widow may be more than a little misleading or to try and fit a story for her, as Lady Danbury does, in fact, have children in the books. In fact, her grandson named Gareth is the one who marries the youngest of the Bridgerton brothers, Hyacinth (Florence Hunt), but that may not be seen in the Neflix series.
However, after several stories in the books, readers discover that Gareth is actually the illegitimate son of Lady Danbury’s daughter, the identity of his real father being a mystery, but this does not happen until the seventh book of the program, titled, “It’s In His Kiss”.
Interestingly, according to the description of the character in the Netflix series, she is “a widow with no children of her own”, so it is certain that we could see a curious adaptation for her and the theme of one of her children, having some connection with the Bridgertons. and revealing his true story.
Lady Danbury’s curious secret past in the Bridgerton series is sure to provide fodder for the all-knowing Lady Whistledown (Julie Andrews), which could lead her into big trouble with the Queen, or the chance to become part of the Bridgerton family. It only remains to wait for the next deliveries and the details that the producers will be revealing about the following stories that will be adapted.
