Penelope Featherington Gets Her Dream Husband Colin Featherington In Bridgerton

After some encouragement from Penelope, Colin also starts writing about his travels.

Who else was rooting for Penelope Featherington and Colin Featherington to wind up together in both the Bridgerton series and in real life?

We are sure it’s not just us. In fact, when the rumors of Nicola Coughlan (Penelope) and Luke Newton (Colin) started swirling around the internet, we desperately hoped they were true.

In fact, when we saw both of them together in the episode of Good Morning America on May 13, our hopes just went above the roof.

Key Takeaways

  • Nicola and Luke Newton aren’t dating in real life, as Nicola herself proves.
  • In the Bridgerton series, Penelope is always crushing on Colin, but he isn’t interested in her initially.
  • With time, they get close and get married.

After the episode, both of them appeared together at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall in New York City for the season 3 premiere of the Bridgerton series.

They both looked cute when they walked together on the red carpet.

But when Nicola was asked about the rumors, she revealed that they were nothing but good friends in real life.

While denying all the rumors, she said,

We think it’s really sweet, I think because we truly love each other, He is a really special person in my life, and I got to do this experience with him. I’ll never get to do something like this again, on this scale… It’s so nice having such a lovely friend that I can do all this with.

Nicola Coughlan

She also shared stuff relating to the show; check out this video to know about what she said:

So, after the interview, the bad news is that they aren’t dating as of this writing.

Such a bummer, right?

But do you know what bummed us even more? Netflix released only the first half of the series, merely 4 episodes.

It didn’t even reveal if Penelope and Colin ended up together. In the series, she is still pining over Colin.

We know you guys also felt the same way, and it’s time-consuming for you to read all nine books of Bridgerton.

So, for your sake, we read the entire thing. And let us tell you guys, Penelope and Colin end up being together at the end.

Colin Featherington Is The Husband Of Penelope Featherington In Books

Before revealing their story, let us tell you that this section contains the major spoilers from the first half of season 3 of Bridgerton.

The story about their love starts when Penelope’s bonnet is blown away by the winds and hits Colin’s face, who is riding a horse at the time.

Due to this incident, Colin falls from his horse but doesn’t react harshly. His kind nature makes Penelope instantly fall in love with him.

After some time, they both start becoming good friends, but Penelope wants something more than that.

On one fine day, she overhears Colin saying he would never get married to her. This incident breaks her heart. For some time, they don’t even talk to one another.

But eventually, they resolve their issues.

Fun Fact: Just like in the show, Penelope hates being recognized as the old maiden.

At one point in time, Penelope’s mother proposes that Colin marry her younger daughter, Felicity.

Felicity is yet to make an appearance in the series.

At one point, we are introduced to the character Lady Whistledown in the book.

Lady Whistledown is a writer who spreads gossip through a newsletter. In a short time, she even manages to impress the queen.

But since she works anonymously, everyone, including Colin, is intrigued to know who she is.

Her work is so notorious that Lady Danbury offers 1000 pounds to anyone who could uncover her identity during Violet’s birthday ball.

Suddenly, Penelope gains immense confidence and accuses Lady Danbury of being the anonymous writer, which Colin notices.

And one fine day, he learns that Penelope is the actual Lady Whistledown. Impressed by her career, Colin finally falls for Penelope.

Colin And Penelope Get Married

With time, Colin gets jealous of Penelope’s career, but the issue is resolved soon after.

Later, they have a small wedding.

After some encouragement from Penelope, Colin also starts writing about his travels.

Their cute little secret is later discovered by Cressida, who tries to blackmail them. But our beautiful couple reveals the information on their own term.

Besides that, they also end up having 3 children.

And that’s their entire love story. By the way, who is your favorite couple besides them? Feel free to leave an answer in the comment section.

In Case You Didn’t Know

  • Queen Charlotte, from the Bridgerton series, is an actual historical figure.
  • Dame Julie Andrews, DBE, voiced Lady Whistledown.
