BBC Radio 3: Free Thinking
Queen Charlotte, fashion and music
Music making, fashion and behaviour at court in the Georgian period are the focus of new research by Sophie Coulombeau, Mary-Jannet Leith and Lizzy Buckle. As Bridgerton launches a spin-off series about Queen Charlotte and an exhibition opens at the Queen’s Gallery at Buckingham Palace called Style and Society, Shahidha Bari hosts a discussion about soirées, soprano stardom and sexual scandals.
