    The whole gang is back, from the Bridgerton family to the Featherington family, and they're all up to their fancy schmancy shenanigans once again.

    Eloise: "I look like a prized calf trussed up for auction" Benedict: [Moos]

    Things have changed this season, though. We're introduced to a new family, and more importantly, a new character who's stolen hearts all over the world: Kate Sharma.

    Simone Ashley in Season 2 of "Bridgerton"

    Kate Sharma (played by Simone Ashley) is hands down one of the best characters on Bridgerton, and a lot of fans can't get enough of her sharp wit, complex personality, and beautiful spirit.

    Anthony: "Ladies do not hunt" Kate: "Do not, or are they not allowed to?"

    no thoughts just Kate Sharma jumping and twirling around while playing pall mall while Anthony grudgingly applauds

    Thank you Kate Sharma for making Anthony smile and feel alive for the first time in a long time 🥺❤️ #Bridgerton #Kanthony

    The fact that Kate and Edwina ( The Sharma’s ) are two dark-skinned Indian women, which even Bollywood fails to employ is so damn refreshing. Bridgerton season 2 is top tier. The representation & Kanthony’s chemistry is everything ❤️‍🔥🤌🏻 #Bridgerton | #Kanthony | #SimoneAshley

    thinking about kate sharma wearing emerald bangles and necklaces when the queen says in episode one she finds emeralds more precious than diamonds……now that’s art

    Some of u have never experienced feeling undesirable by society’s standards & having a man fight his feeling for u. Some of u have never experienced NOT being chosen and having to be ok with it Kate Sharma deserves all the love #BridgertonNetflix #Kanthony

    the first time Kate Sharma allowed herself to wish for something and take it was when she kissed Anthony Bridgerton 😭 #Kanthony #Bridgerton

    you can dislike any character you want because that’s your opinion. unless you dislike kate sharma. it’s actually illegal to dislike kate sharma.

    the smug look on anthony's face in the museum when he's all 'we kissed' 'are you quite serious' and moves closer to her with that smirk. the fact that kate sharma was able to walk away without either kissing his stupid face or punching him? she's a stronger woman than me.

    knowing they could have found any actress but went to simone ashley being the tall girl she is, creating the lack of height difference for kathony, they truly understood the vibe

    See the thing about Kate Sharma is that its not only representation through looks but also through characterisation. Kate may not be universally relatable now - but she gives representation to so many eldest daughters with parent complexes especially desi girls
