In news that would delight Lady Whistledown herself, Bridgerton co-stars Luke Thompson and Harriet Cains are rumoured to be an item. 

Their romance appeared to be confirmed at the Vanity Fair Rising Star Party earlier this year, with fans recently resurfacing the photos ahead of the season three premiere. 

Who is Luke Thomspon dating?

Luke, who plays the charming second brother Benedict Bridgerton, and Harriet, who plays the silly sister Philippa Featherington, have been linked publicly since January. But are they really an item? 

Luke and Harriet have clearly been friends, along with the rest of the Bridgerton cast, since production first began in 2019. Fans have seen countless photos of the pair from behind-the-scenes snaps to friendly hangs.

However, it was their sweet appearance at the Vanity Fair party in January 2024 that got fans thinking there may be something more to this relationship. 

Harriet herself posted photos from the event on Instagram, captioning with black and white love hearts.

But this wasn’t the only time Harriet posted Luke to her social channels, with her first-ever Instagram post being a hilarious ‘Luke Thompson fan-edit.’

The image in question featured Luke, surrounded by pink love hearts.

“My favourite Luke,” she captioned the post, joking that she was “sorry” to fellow Bridgerton star Luke Newton.
