We learn that Penelope Featherington is in search of a husband, but is struggling due to a lack of confidence in herself. With Eloise Bridgerton now seemingly friends with Cressida Cowper, Penelope strikes a deal with Colin Bridgerton to help her gain confidence and find a husband - something which could put their friendship to the test.

The new Bridgerton season 3 trailer also has fans questioning just what Colin was doing in Europe, though we also see plenty of the show’s other characters including young Francesca Bridgerton as she takes her steps into society and a possible suitor for Penelope, Lord Debling played by English actor Sam Phillips.
