Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story Quotes

Latest quotes added:

Adolphus: You are upset.

Charlotte: 'Tis a viable option I have considered. Moving. Choosing to be killed by my undergarments.

Adolphus: Charlotte.

Charlotte: We have what? An hour to go? I believe if I'm diligent with my movements, I could most certainly bleed to my death before we reach London.

Adolphus: Like I said, you are upset.

Charlotte (to Adolphus): All the finest corsets are whalebone. You'd know that if you knew anything. If you ever paid attention you would also know that the problem with whalebone is that it is rather delicate and also very, very sharp. And, of course, I'm in the height of fashion, so this corset is quite snug. So I give the appearance of a statue, ridiculous to the eye, but that is because I cannot move. And because I must arrive on display, I am forced into a ludicrous gown so stylish that if I move too much, I might be sliced and stabbed to death by my undergarments. Oh, how joyful it is to be a lady.

Adolphus: You have not moved an inch in six hours.

Charlotte: I am wearing Lyonnais silk, encrusted with Indian sapphires, working with overlay of 200-year-old lace. Apparently too much movement can cause the sapphires to shred the lace. If that were not enough, the gown sits atop a bespoke underpinning made of whalebone.

Adolphus: Whalebone?

Charlotte: Yes. Whalebone, Brother. The bones of whales. Whales died, so I could look like this.

Adolphus: You give the appearance of a statue.

Charlotte: Statues are works of art. Art is beautiful.

Adolphus: Art can be beautiful to gaze upon. You are ridiculous to the eye.
