The Best Bridgerton Quotes

Bridgerton has been the talk of the ball the past few weeks, and I’m not remotely surprised. Thanks to its beautiful sets, charming cast and a little too much chemistry, it managed to climb its way to the top of my own best series list, and I’m sure a lot of you would say the same.

After watching it for a second time recently, I’ve found myself quoting it daily, so decided to make a list of my favourite Bridgerton lines – as well as a few printables. If you want to plaster your wall with some iconic Bridgerton Quotes, make sure to save the images, and tag me in any pictures you take.
