Series focus run-through: Queen Charlotte and King George's relationship

The series focuses on Queen Charlotte and King George's relationship as well as the difficulties that emerged as a result of King George's mental condition. The show's focus on Queen Charlotte and King George is based on Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz and King George III's real-life marriage.

Queen Charlotte is mostly a work of fiction, although it is based on real historical individuals. It even begins with the caveat, "This is not a history lesson." It's fiction based on true events." Nonetheless, both the actual and imaginary relationships between these two strong and regal characters will pique the interest of spectators.
