    18 "Bridgerton" Tweets And Tumblr Posts That Show The Internet's Obsession With Lady Danbury

    We all need her grace and guidance!

    If you haven't been living under a rock since Christmas, I'm sure you've heard of a charming little Netflix show called Bridgerton.

    The show follows the Bridgerton family and their London high society friends as they make their way through the marriage season. And, while the cast is stacked with unforgettable characters, one has stood out amongst the rest: Lady Danbury.

    From her first moment on screen with her glorious ruby red top hat, I knew she was going to be something special.

    Lady Danbury is a pseudo mother figure to our leading man, Simon Basset, Duke of Hastings, but she doesn't let his title sway her from delivering some truly impressive sassy remarks.

    Honestly, no noble title can stop Lady Danbury's sarcastic wit.

    Plus, she looks absolutely fabulous no matter the occasion.

    And, from the looks of it, I'm definitely not the only one falling in love with this fiercely independent woman. Twitter has claimed her as the internet's favorite auntie:
