Many have speculated about the meaning of this buzzy cast member ~ that it’s an ode to the Bridgerton patriarch’s untimely death.
But we have our theory ~ that the Bridgerton Bee represents the power of gossip/scandal. We don’t want to give anything away, but the series is dominated by the writings of Lady Whistledown, who as we come to find out is often clad in bee-like yellow (much to her chagrin) and adorned with flowers.
Bees have long played a role in fiction. They are often a symbol of vigilance, energy, and perfect order. Many believe they represent personal power.
The ancient Druids saw the humble bumble bee as a representation of the sun, around which we all orbit.
Honey is often a symbol of a person’s sweet, gentle nature ~ while a bee sting represents justice.
Lots to chew on ~ if you haven’t seen Bridgerton yet be sure to watch for our fabulous bee throughout.
