Now we’ve come to terms with it, here are the best memes about the Duke leaving Bridgerton

Who am I kidding? I’m still crying

Over the bank holiday weekend, we were hit with the devastating news that the Duke of Hastings was not going to be in season two of Bridgerton. After then, the entire Bridgerton fandom went into official mourning, and it is only now that we can (kinda) come to terms with it, and share our thirstiest but saddest memes about the news of Regé-Jean Page leaving the series.

Announcing the heartbreaking news on Twitter, Netflix said: “Dearest Readers, while all eyes turn to Lord Anthony Bridgerton’s quest to find a Viscountess, we bid adieu to Regé-Jean Page, who so triumphantly played the Duke of Hastings.

“We’ll miss Simon’s presence onscreen, but he will always be a part of the Bridgerton family. Daphne will remain a devoted wife and sister, helping her brother navigate the upcoming social season and what it has to offer – more intrigue and romance than my readers may be able to bear.”

So, now we’ve all had a bit of time to recover from the initial shock, here are the best memes about Regé-Jean Page leaving Bridgerton and not being in season two. I’m crying again already.
