Anyone who reads historical fiction understands that you need to enter with the understanding that it is, as the name suggests, fiction.
So no one will be surprised that Felicity Day's piece for the Guardian on romance in the Regency era contains a few observations about the realities of it versus the book and TV depictions of it.
That said, Day isn't here to rain on any Bridgerton parades — she explores the particular features of the era that might be especially appealing to modern readers.
(And it concludes with a few more Regency romance recommendations for those in the market.)
