"As you get from season one, he is absolutely the boy who is born to be Duke, who is struggling with that responsibility. There is a freedom that is not going to be his to enjoy in the same way. I think it's quite an interesting conversation, as it's not just about women being married off, it was happening to men, as well. Not everybody who was born to inherit wants to, so we have that real tension in that storyline."

Season one focused on Daphne Bridgerton

Jonathan Bailey, who plays Anthony, also chatted about what to expect from the new series, telling Vogue: "Well, I feel like the campy, plush spectacle of the Bridgerton world is only going to get more pronounced in the best way possible. It's mad, and it's brilliant. There are also going to be a lot of brilliant characters introduced in this series — and it's not just Anthony that we're going to delve into."
