Did Lady Danbury Have An Affair

The series explored the romantic life of Lady Danbury, a character that fans of Bridgerton would be familiar with. Lady Danbury did not love her husband and hated how often he would seek her out for their marital duties. Her loveless marriage led to her having a disinterest in sex, that is until after the death of her husband when she began going for walks with Lord Ledger.

It wasn’t clear if Lord Ledger was not in love with his wife, but there were certainly a number of differing opinions between them, especially on opinions to do with the great experiment. Eventually, Lady Danbury and Lord Ledger would fall into each other’s arms and found excuses to bed each other. However, Lady Danbury would have to put a stop to their affair or risk a giant scandal within the ton, which could have impacted the issue surrounding her son’s inheritance. Despite Lady Danbury unable to act upon her feelings for Lord Ledger, she would keep the birthday crown he made for her as a memento of their time together.

Does Lady Danbury Have A Child

Lady Danbury reveals in Queen Charlotte that she does in fact have four children; a fact that was not covered on Brigerton.

The prequel spin-off series also gave us more insight into the character of Viscountess Violet Bridgerton. She was struggling to deal with her own needs as she greatly missed her husband and how often her “garden” used to be attended to. Lady Danbury became a confidant over the issue for Violet. However, after listening to her a great deal, and finding one of her father’s birthday crowns in the possession of Lady Danbury, she came to the realization that at some point her father and Lady Danbury had had an affair. Once Lady Danbury realized Violet knew about the affair, she attempted to explain herself, however, Violet would stop her with little being said in words, but a lot more said in silence.
