The Biggest Changes Bridgerton Season 3 Made From the Books

What About Francesca Bridgerton?

Francesca Bridgerton (Hannah Dodd) is unfortunately sometimes considered the forgotten Bridgerton child, not because her family doesn’t love her, but because—as she does on the show—the sixth Bridgerton sibling prefers quiet and calm.

In the book series, it’s casually mentioned that Francesca found her husband seven years before we pick up with Penelope and Colin. However, executive producer Shonda Rhimes and team have decided to combine some of the book plotlines with Francesca, Colin and Benedict Bridgerton (Luke Thompson) all searching for love in season three. That leads us to…

In the TV show, Francesca becomes Queen Charlotte’s (Golda Rosheuvel) ”diamond” of the season and finds herself being courted by the Queen’s pick Lord Samadani (David Mumeni), as well as by her preferred suitor, John Stirling, Earl of Kilmartin (Victor Alli). (Sadly, Queen Charlotte is not a character in the books, meaning the monarch—and her truly fantastic headpieces—never anoints a “diamond” of any season.)

We’ll avoid any more of the novel’s spoilers about Francesca—as there’s likely to be plenty of development on her in Bridgerton part two—but if you are interested in spoilers, her story is expanded upon in the sixth Bridgerton book, When He Was Wicked.
