Here's how old the Bridgerton family kids are supposed to be on the show and how old the actors are in real life as we watch their dramas unfold on Netflix:

The eldest of the Bridgertons, we see Anthony on his quest to find a wife as he complies to his family duty in season 2.

He tells himself he will lead with his "head and not his heart" as he finds himself under pressure to marry a suitor.

As the eldest, Anthony, played by Jonathan Bailey, is supposed to be 31 years old. This has been worked out by the fact he is 9 years old than his sister Daphne and is of similar age to the Duke of Hastings, his university friend.

In real life, Jonathan is 33.
