Julia Quinn Has a Special Copy of “The Duke and I”

Julia Quinn, author of the extremely famous Bridgerton books, recently shared that one of her most prized possessions is a copy of “The Duke and I” that two very special people signed.


The Duke and I is the title of the first book in the Bridgerton series and has the honor of being the inspiration for the first season of Netflix’s hit TV show Bridgerton.


The book is signed by Pheobe Dynevor and Rege-Jean Page who play Daphne Bridgerton and Simon Basset, respectivally.


The inscription reads:


“Dearest Julia,

Thank you for creating Daphne. She will forever be in my heart.


Pheobe X”




“Dear Julia,

What a beautiful world, what a gorgeous garden you’ve grown!

May it continue to bloom so.

Love from Regé (Simon Arthur Henry Fitzranulph)”


The book also has a bookmark which is made from a scrap of fabric that Nicola Coughlan wore when she played Penelope Featherington.
