Queen Charlotte, played by Golda Rosheuvel, in Netflix’s hit series Bridgerton served lewks in every scene she was in. As a matter of fact, the actress said in every scene that she was in she wore a different wig and gown (Glamour.com). The Queen, who is based off a real-life monarch of the same name and has been long speculated to have African ancestry, which makes Golda a perfect fit for the role.
The wigs worn by Queen Charlotte were definitely a moment and deserved more attention as one loyal reader pointed out and I couldn’t agree more.
A few notable headpieces paid homage to her African ancestry. Such as the elegant jewel adorned updo above comprised of white blonde microbraids and textured edges.
Perhaps the one of the most notable wigs of the series was the white blond loc wig the Queen Charlotte wore that spiraled to the heavens. The finishing touch were the two bird cages and birds that literally nested at the top of the elegant coif.
Ahh, the afro wig! This has to be my most favorite wig worn by Queen Charlotte. She effortlessly showcases how afro textured hair can be elegant. Two jewel encrusted golden afro pick combs complete the look.
Other fun wigs included this cotton candy pink one adorned with an oversized diamond barrette to give a finishing touch of regalness.
The wigs seemed to get higher and higher with every scene. A jet black spiral of braided curls with several gold and ruby crowns interwoven into the hair amplified this sultry garnet look. Notice how the background has the same color scheme.
Even a grey tower of loose curls cannot age the Queen Charlotte! Serve!
Golda Rosheuvel really embodied the role of Queen Charlotte, from the pursed lips to the piercing sneer. In her role, she wore such extravagant wigs (as well as gowns and jewels) effortlessly really conveying the message that opulence was an everyday occurrence for Her Majesty, the Queen.
