The Duke also jokes after the birth of their first child in the final (and very touching) scene of the season that he “believes” the child’s name “must start with the letter A,” as an allusion on the first names of the eight Bridgerton children in alphabetical symmetry.
During season two, Daphne casually reveals baby Basset’s first name – Augie – proving that they stuck to Simon’s request to follow the Bridgerton family tradition of sorting children’s names alphabetically. Perhaps Augie is a nickname for a longer name worthy of the Regency era, like Augustus or Augustine?
Actress Ruby Stokes had to leave the season in the middle of filming.
If you started the Bridgerton binge-watching train in 2021, you already know the series details of the sweet tradition of naming children alphabetically. The Bridgerton family consists of eight children named alphabetically in order from oldest to youngest: Anthony, Benedict, Colin, Daphne, Eloise, Francesca, Gregory and Hyacinth.
Francesca Bridgerton, played by Ruby Stokes, is the only Bridgerton sibling to be inexplicably absent from most parts of Bridgerton.
In “The Duke and I”, Daphne and Simon also honor tradition, but their family looks a little different. They have three daughters – Amelia, Belinda, and Caroline – before welcoming their first son, David, to the epilogue.
“Daphne obviously gave birth to a child at the end of season one, so you will meet Bubba in season two, and it’s the most beautiful Bubba I’ve ever seen in my life have,” she said. and adds that he is said to be about 6 months old in the season. “We were so lucky, they were so good.
Page’s Duke of Hastings, who married Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor) in the first season, would have been a background player at best in the second. Page decided to continue his burgeoning film career and (spoiler alert) doesn’t appear at all in Season 2, which debuts March 25th. His absence is painful to feel.
In the season finale, Eloise finds out that Penelope was Lady Whistledown all along! It’s horrific for Eloise. The two have a horrific fight in which they gut each other.
The age of Daphne Bridgerton
In the book on which the first season is based, Daphne is 21 years old. Phoebe Dynevor, who plays Daphne, was born in April 1995, so she’s 26 in real life.
The ages of the debutantes vary by story, but are generally between 16 and 18.
If you’re still having trouble keeping track of all the Bridgertons, here’s a trick: Their names are in alphabetical order, from Anthony to Hyacinth. Everyone’s favorite matchmaking mom, Violet Bridgerton, wants only one thing for her children: true love like the one she had with her husband Edmund.
On the day of Edwina’s wedding to Anthony, there is the heartwarming incorporation of traditional Indian jewellery. Kate pulls out a pair of green jeweled gold bangles. She explains they belonged to her mother and she wore them on her wedding day.
Similar to her mother, Daphne follows family tradition and names her five children in alphabetical order. Beginning with the couple’s first child, Amelia, the Hastings give birth to two more daughters, Belinda and Caroline, and then two sons, David and Edward.
Bridgerton, set in Regency Era London and based on the historical romance series by Julia Quinn, focuses on the eight Bridgerton siblings: Anthony, Benedict, Colin, Daphne, Eloise, Francesca, Gregory and Hyacinth.
Colin, the third Bridgerton, is just a little older than Daphne at 22. Eloise, Daphne’s younger sister, is said to be in series 17, so it made sense that she was allowed to delay her debut on the dating scene. Penelope Featherington is the same age as Eloise.
