The Bridgerton Set Details That Only The Crown Fans Will Notice

The Crown, four seasons in, and Bridgerton, with one season out so far, are both popular shows on Netflix. The Crown is a historical drama that follows the life of Queen Elizabeth II (Claire Foy, Olivia Colman) and her inner circle, starting from when Elizabeth ascends to the throne in 1953 and moving through the many decades of her long reign. The most recent season concluded with the characters in 1990 and will likely continue through a couple more decades in season 5. Bridgerton, meanwhile, follows Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor), the eldest daughter in a powerful family during the Regency in London, who becomes eligible for marriage and hopes to find a husband whom she truly loves. When she falls for Simon Basset (Regé-Jean Page), she realizes true love is more complicated than expected.

Bridgerton and The Crown have a few things in common: They're distributed by Netflix, they're period dramas, they feature beautiful costumes representative of their depicted eras — and, as was recently discovered, they use the same sets.

Identical sets are used in The Crown and Bridgerton

The Irish Sun reported on the discovery, which include more than one instance of the same set being used.

In one scene of Bridgerton, Daphne and Simon appear before Queen Charlotte (Golda Rosheuvel) to ask for permission to marry each other. A fan on TikTok pointed out that the set used in this scene — a grand-looking room with gold-lined borders and large artwork covering the walls — is the same room through which Princess Diana (Emma Corin) is seen roller-skating in a season 4 scene of The Crown

Another user observed that each scene was filmed from a different side of the room, using a piece of artwork as a reference. The second instance of the same set is the study that Simon can be seen using. That study is the same exact set used for Queen Elizabeth's office. This time, the respective scenes are shot from the same angle and, although the desks being used appear different, the artwork looks identical.

A source told The Irish Sun that "there are only so many stately homes that work for filming," leading to this kind of crossover for the period shows. Whatever the reason, it's an amusing detail for fans of the show to come across.
