Andrew Roberts' 'brilliant' George III major source in Bridgerton star's research for role

We are thrilled to hear that Andrew Robert's award-winning biography George III: The Life and Reign of Britain's Most Misunderstood Monarch was a primary source in Corey Mylchreest's research for his role as the King in the new Bridgerton series, 'Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story'.

Of Roberts' book, Corey said: 'I did a lot of research, there’s a brilliant book by Andrew Roberts, and spoke with a specialist for a good few hours...'

It was winner of the Elizabeth Longford Prize for Historical Biography, 2022; the General Society of Colonial Wars' Distinguished Book Award, 2021; the History Reclaimed Book of the Year, 2022; and shortlisted for the Duff Cooper Prize, 2021.
