Who does Benedict Bridgerton marry?

In the Bridgerton books, Benedict Bridgerton marries Sophia 'Sophie' Beckett. However their love story is a complicated one, as they meet under unusual circumstances.

During a masquerade ball, Benedict falls for a mysterious woman whose identity he does not know. While the pair bond at the party, they are quickly separated as the lady leaves the ball at the stroke of midnight, leaving behind a single glove.

Soon after this chance meeting Benedict becomes acquainted with Sophia 'Sophie' Beckett, after rescuing the young maid and offering her a job. What Benedict doesn't know is that Sophie is in fact the same woman he met at the ball.

Benedict then finds himself toying between his feelings for Sophie and his connection with the masked woman. He eventually makes his choice and asks Sophie to marry him, not before finding out he was in love with the same woman the whole time.

How old is Benedict Bridgerton?

Benedict Bridgerton is said to be 28-years-old during season three of the show and is the second eldest sibling.

Speaking about his character's journey in the third series, Luke told Country & Town House: "He’s so open for lots of new experiences, but it can be slightly paralysing, because it means he doesn’t really know where he fits in.

"And that’s where we find Benedict this season – pushed a bit further on."
