The town of Mirow on the Mecklenburg Lake District produced an English queen: Queen Charlotte (1744-1818). The fact, which was previously only known to those who were interested, is now becoming known to a broad and young audience through the Netflix series “Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story”.

In Mirow, where Princess Sophie Charlotte zu Mecklenburg-Strelitz was born and spent the first 17 years of her life until her marriage to King George III of England. (1738-1820), one is pleased about the publicity and hopes for additional visitors. Although one or the other in town is a bit snuffy because of the fact that the youthful years of the queen were not filmed on the original location in Mecklenburg, but in English mansions.

The manager of Schloss Mirow, Susanne Bocher, watched the series and immediately launched a special tour on the childhood and youth of the future Queen Charlotte. “We present her youth and her journey to England,” says Bocher. She expects demand primarily from individual tourists. “Our bus tour groups, which consist primarily of seniors, don’t watch Netflix,” she says. The hype goes past them.
