The evening out came after Martha Louise and Durek opened up to their followers about the struggles of being an interacial couple, including receiving death threats.

Speaking on an Instagram Live on Thursday, Durek explained: "I think a lot of our relationship and why people have such an issue with it, and why people write all this hate and send death threats to us… is because: one, they don't want to see a black man in the royal family because there's never been one in the history of histories in the European royal family so that's a huge thing.

The couple had a candid conversation with their fans 

"Second, Martha is a female. It's different when a man chooses a woman of colour because he's a man… but for a princess to choose a man of colour, it has never been done in history so it's really tough for people to handle that."

He added: "They don't want the Bridgertons, they want to watch it on TV but they don't want the real Bridgertons, which is us, so they get very upset and angry and say really mean things, but they don't understand that our world can't stay the same, we have to evolve."
