Struggling to sleep? You’re not alone. Insomnia is something many of us deal with regularly due to a number of different reasons. But what if we told you that Bridgerton’s dreamy Duke, Regé-Jean Page, was ready and waiting to read you a bedtime sleep story?
Yep, throw away all of the sleeping hacks you’ve ever learnt because this right here is all you’ll ever need to dose off into some good quality shut-eye. Mindfulness app, Calm, has made all of our dreams come true by calling on Regé-Jean, known to us as the Duke of Hastings (aka a man after our own hearts) to lead his voice to its new ‘sleep story’ – a feature designed to help users sleep well.
The story of choice is aptly named, The Prince And The Naturalist and is described on the app as an ‘illuminating journey through Olde England’ which sees ‘a naturalist and a royal pupil discover the wisdom of nature’. Whether it sounds right up your street or not, the plot isn’t really what matters here, it is our Duke.
Let’s face it, Regé-Jean could be saying anything and we’d be lapping it right up thanks to his deep royal tone and dashing looks.
The world fell in love with the actor following his role as Simon Basset (aka The Duke Of Hastings) on the first season of the hit Netflix show and frankly, we’ve been obsessed with him ever since. In fact, our hearts were broken when it was announced that he wouldn’t be returning for the second season of Bridgerton as the storylines shift to the next instalment of Julia Quinn’s nine-part book series.
Opening up about his decision to be a part of the sleep story, Regé-Jean explained that he was happy to be assisting people in getting some sleep, especially at a time when so many of us are struggling to relax and switch off. ‘I know how valuable relaxation is for us all, especially in trying times, so I couldn’t be more glad to lend my voice to a sleep story,’ he said.
He joins the likes of Harry Styles, Idris Elba and Priyanka Chopra Jonas who have all partnered with Calm to release their own sleep stories. Regé-Jean’s episode is now available to listen to on the app.
We know what we’ll be doing tonight!
