We recap the Netflix series Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story Episode 6, “Crown Jewels,” which contains spoilers and explains the Ending. 

At a runtime of one hour and 26 minutes, the series finale is as long as a full-feature film. But rest assured, dearest gentle reader; there’s not a single dull moment in sight. Young Charlotte’s (India Amarteifio) role as Queen is firmly defined, while Agatha (Arsema Thomas) faces a life-changing decision.  

Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story Episode 6 Recap

During the first few minutes of the finale, Princess Augusta learns about Young Charlotte’s dismissal of Doctor Monro. Despite the Dowager’s attempts at convincing concerned lords that she’s still in control, her son and daughter-in-law keep her in the dark about everything.

George and Charlotte confess their love

At the Royal residence, a newly recovered George tries pushing Charlotte away once more. But the stubborn Queen refuses to leave him, and the two confess their love to each other. When Princess Augusta tries to visit her son, Charlotte sends her away. But Augusta doesn’t leave before reminding the new Queen of George’s duty as King. 

The Royal Couple move back to Buckingham House. While George prepares to address Parliament, the Queen delivers a healthy prince. 

Now that the Royal couple is living together, Brimsley and Reynolds can also enjoy their love in close quarters while serving their respective monarch. 

The Queen Commits to her King

On the day the King is supposed to give a speech, he freezes and can’t leave the carriage. In a heartwarming scene, Charlotte joins her husband under the bed, where he’s hiding, and vows to love him despite his faults. To her, he’s just George, and that’s enough. 

Why isn’t Agatha confiding her problems with the Queen?

Meanwhile, Young Agatha is still unsure of her future, yet refuses to continue giving Augusta more information about the Queen. Not wanting to burden Charlotte, she also avoids telling her about her inheritance problem. 

Prince Adolphus, however, could be the solution Agatha is searching for. The Queen’s brother briefly courts the young widow before asking for her hand in marriage. 

Agatha hesitates to accept the proposal. And her heart is still hurting after Lord Ledger ended their brief love affair. 

How does Violet learn of her father’s affair with Agatha?

In the present-day Bridgervese, the Viscountess confesses to Lady Danbury that she’s considering marrying again. She also makes a shocking discovery inside Lady Danbury’s home; one of her father’s paper hats. 

She tries coaxing information from her friend, but Agatha is a master of deflection. Eventually, Violet invites Lady Danbury over, but not before decorating her seating room with “cheerful” paper hats, including some made by Lord Ledger. 

It’s a tense scene in which the two women come to a silent but mutual understanding. Violet knows. 

As for Queen Charlotte, it seems her matchmaking efforts finally paid off. Her young son Edward and his new bride, Victoria, are expecting a baby. When Edwards notes that the baby is likely a girl, Charlotte is happy at the prospect of a strong Queen for her country. (A nice little nod from the series to Queen Victoria). 

Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story Ending Explained

This wouldn’t be a Bridgerton story if it didn’t end with a grand ball. In this case, the ball is hosted by King and Queen. She holds his hand, and they wave to the crowd before dancing, a public appearance that secures George’s position as King in the eyes of his people and Parliament.

Impressed with Charlotte’s achievements, Princess Augusta finally relents control of her son and thanks the new Queen for making him happy. 

As for Young Agatha, she makes the wise decision to reject Adolphus’s proposal. She can’t stand the idea of once more living for a man, even if it would mean the end of her financial worries. 

Halfway through the ball, away from the crowds, Brimsley and Reynolds share a loving dance. 

A confident Charlotte approaches Agatha to scold her for two things. Firstly, for breaking poor Adolphus’ heart. And, more importantly, for not asking the Crown for help with her inheritance worries. 

Where is King George?

The series ends back in present-day Bridgerverse. Happy to hear she’s about to be a grandmother, Queen Charlotte visits her husband. The King is lost inside his mind, but she manages to bring him back by hiding under his bed with him, as they did when they were young. 

She tells him the happy news, he thanks her, and they hold hands; still as in love as they were decades before.
