Netflix has unveiled a first look teaser clip of Queen Charlotte ahead of the much-anticipated Bridgerton prequel spin-off series.

It was announced last year that a spin-off series charting the younger years of the flamboyant and gossip-hungry monarch would be in the works, with the show written and produced by Bridgerton creator Shonda Rhimes.

The streaming giant has now released a short video from the first episode showing India Amarteifio as the fan favorite character, while Corey Mylchreest is seen taking on the role of Young King George.

The actress, 21, embodied the character as she dripped in jewels and wore an elegant white dress with a fitted corset while trying to climb the garden wall at the castle where she resides.

King George enters and asks: ‘Hello my lady, are you in need of assistance of some kind?’

To which Queen Charlotte responds: ‘I am quite fine thank you, you can go back inside and wait.’

The two go back and forward, with Charlotte unwilling to give up the reason she is trying to climb the wall.

She then reveals: ‘Because I think he may be a beast. Or a troll.’

George asks: ‘Who are we discussing?’

Charlotte rudely laughs: ‘Well that is impertinent, none of your business.’

There is then an awkward silence until Charlotte reveals: ‘The king. no one will speak of him. He is clearly a beast or a troll. You know if I grab there perhaps you can assist me by lifting me up there.’

George says: ‘One question, you don’t like beasts or trolls, what he looks like matters?

Charlotte, who is still focused on climbing the wall, replies: ‘I don’t care what he looks like, what I don’t like is not knowing, now here just take hold here and with a lift, I believe I can make it over the garden wall.

‘You want me to live you over the garden wall so you can escape? People will notice you are missing shall they not?,’ a concerned George asks.

Charlotte replies: ‘I shall worry about that later, now if you please I just need a little help.’

George, who doesn’t appear to be taking the Queen seriously, says: ‘I have absolutely no intention of helping you.’

A frustrated Charlotte finally turns to face him and answers: ‘I am a lady in distress. You refuse to help a lady in distress?’

It is then revealed that George is the king as he announces: ‘I refuse when that lady is trying to go over a wall so that she does not have to marry me.’

As well as giving a first glimpse at the character, Netflix also revealed on Friday that the official title for the prequel spin-off show will be Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story.

A description of the series read: ‘Centered 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 Tone inherited by the characters in Bridgerton.’

The prequel will also see Golda Rocheuvel return to the role of Queen Charlotte, in her later years, with Adjoa Andoh playing the fierce Lady Agatha Danbury.

Ruth Gemmell will also reprise her role as Lady Violet Bridgerton while Michelle Fairley will join the cast as Princess Augusta.

Elsewhere, Corey Mylchreest will play Young King George and Arsema Thomas will make her television debut as Young Agatha Danbury.

Set in the mid 18th Century, the prequel examines the young life of Charlotte, the daughter of German royalty who married British Monarch George III, played in the Netflix drama by Corey Mylchreest, in 1761, when she was 17.

The marriage lasted 57 years and produced 15 children. Miss Amarteifio, 21, who played DCI Rose Huntley’s daughter Sophie in the fourth season of BBC drama Line Of Duty, has also starred in Dr Who and ITV’s Unforgotten.

It will also include the origins of other characters featured in Bridgerton, namely Violet Bridgerton and Lady Danbury.

Following rumbles that the second series of Bridgerton didn’t live up to the raunchy heights of the first, it looks as if the producers have taken note, with the spin-off prequel to the Netflix drama, Queen Charlotte, being spiced up to keep viewing figures high.

For one scene, a source says, a wall was reinforced. In another scene viewers will see banging headboards.

According to a source, there were fears that one energetic love-making scene featuring the young monarch, played by India Ria Amarteifio, might be so energetic that it could literally bring the house down.

‘There is a young cast for the prequel and the sex scenes feature them,’ said the insider. It is definitely going to satisfy those Bridgerton fans who are complaining that there are no sex scenes in the second series.

‘In one storyline there will be a headboard banging hard against a wall. It will be more racy than anything from the first series.’
