21 Times Katherine Ryan's Character In The Duchess Was Almost Too Relatable

Because we've all had reactions like this in real life, right?

If you’re a Katherine Ryan fan, then no doubt you’ll already know her debut sitcom The Duchess has just landed on Netflix

The series follows what the streaming service describes as the “powerful and problematic choices of a fashionably disruptive single mom living in London”.

Almost too relatable, in fact.
