Queen Camilla is a Bridgerton fan.

Yesterday, while attending the Royal Chelsea Flower Show, the Queen toured a garden inspired by the character of Penelope Featherington (Nicola Coughlan) on the hit Netflix show. While at the Bridgerton garden, which was designed by Holly Johnston, Queen Camilla revealed, "I watched the first lot" of Bridgerton season three. (Part two drops next month, on June 13.)

Per the Royal Horticultural Society, which puts on the annual flower show, the design is meant "to reflect Penelope’s personal journey" on the show. The RHS continues, "the garden’s initial focus is a moongate which leads to an ornate water feature and sunken seating area in the heart of the garden. A shaded space down one half of the garden alludes to themes of mystery, turmoil and defiance; layers of groundcover, ferns and ivy are intended to represent a woven network of secrets. In contrast, the other half of the garden graduates to a brighter palette of sophisticated colours. This ‘full bloom’ effect is symbolic of Penelope’s embracing of her true self and coming into the light."

Two Bridgerton stars—Ruth Gemmell, who plays Violet Bridgerton, and Hannah Dodd, who plays Francesca Bridgerton—were also at the Royal Chelsea Flower Show yesterday for the preview:

Elsewhere at the flower show, Queen Camilla toured the Highgrove Garden shop, which featured two wicker sculptures of her beloved rescue dogs, Beth and Bluebell. Per Highgrove, the sculptures were created by willow weaver Emma Stothard.

Camilla's dogs are close to her heart; at the coronation last year, designs of Bluebell and Beth were embroidered on her gown.
