Daphne will be seen around the season along with his brother Anthony.
Even Phoebe Dynevor previously said, “There’s no such thing as a happy ending, is there? I think love’s always shifting and changing. So who knows? I’d like to see what happens next. And also, I’d like to see Daphne get involved in Anthony’s love life since he was so involved in hers.”
The actress also told The Wrap about Duke not being a part of Season 2 but will be remembered throughout the season.
Dynevor said, “I think he’ll be referred to a lot, I think we’ll see the baby. And we’ll just focus more on her relationship with the Bridgerton Family.”
